Mother’s Day Projects

Every year my husband and I make an effort to visit all of our mothers for Mother’s Day.  I like to try to see my sisters too. Sometimes I’ll do a Mother’s Day brunch at our house for my family, and then we will go to either one of Joe’s parent’s places to see one of his moms. With such a big family, holidays can get tricky but we try to make it work one way or another. This year, my sisters work so my mom is coming over for a quick visit before we go visit my grandma and Joe is going to his mom’s seperately.  It works out better to split up this year, but I’m hoping my mother-in-law won’t mind my absence since I made her this:

Wipe Yer Hooves Wreath

It was pretty easy to put together, and you know how much I love me a wreath! Plus, don’t tell her, but it cost less than $10 to make! I got the horseshoes free from my sister and the grapevine wreath itself for $2 on sale; the felt cowboy hat was around $3 for a pack of four of them, the plaque was 50 cents, the bandanna was 99 cents. The most expensive item was the flowers, which were a big bundle for $5, but I can use the rest for another project.  I had the raffia, wire for securing the horseshoes, stickers for the sign and  modge podge in my craft arsenal.

Here are some of the other Mother’s Day gifts I made this year with a trip to the dollar store and after raiding my scrapbooking supplies:

I hope that all of the mothers, grandmas, aunts and motherly figures out there have a beautiful day today! Happy Mother’s Day!
