I love, love, love celebrating my Mom. I hope you love celebrating yours, too, so I dreamed up a really gorgeous DIY for Mother’s Day, which is on May 12! I’m so excited about this one, because we collaborated with the lovely Lana from Lana’s Shop again. (Remember the desktop wallpaper she made for us?) It’s so inspiring to work with her, and I think we make a pretty good team! A few special words from her:
I hope you enjoy these tags to share your sentiment with all the amazing mothers and women of all forms in your life! Things are best homemade (if you ask me), and no one will appreciate it more than mom. For future custom gift ideas, take a peek at how to get started on your next project with me.
So this DIY has two parts, and the first one is Lana’s gorgeous printable gift tag. She put so much love into this project, and we both hope you download it and give it to your ever lovin’ mama! The instructions are simple. First, grab your free download here and print it out.
Cut out both pieces.
Use a glue stick to stick the two sides together, being careful to make sure that you glue the inside right-side-up. Fold in half.
Punch a small hole over the printed guide, and string it with ribbon or twine.
Isn’t it just the most lovely? I think the inside is so wonderful, and I could fill a whole book with the reasons why I love my mom. Be sure to write something awesome! Now if you want to put Lana’s gorgeous little tag on a floral bangle bracelet, like we did, read on for instructions. You’ll need:
- about 20 medium-sized blooms (we used ranunculus!)
- floral wire
- floral tape
Start by taking the leaves and stems off of your blooms. Leave about 2-3 inches of stem.
Cut 30″ of floral wire and form it into a circle large enough to fit on your mom’s wrist like a bracelet. Wrap the wire around itself a few times to secure and strengthen the bracelet.
Begin attaching the blooms to the wire. Cut about 6″ of floral tape, hold a stem against the wire, and wrap the tape around the stem & wire, just at the base of the bloom. Continue the process around the wire, keeping the blooms close together. Trim stems if needed.
Continue the process until you’ve covered the entire bracelet.
Gently tie on Lana’s tag and present it to your mom on Mother’s Day! I think this is such a cool, modern take on a traditional corsage. I think it would also be perfect as an alternative corsage for prom, if you know any teens! And FYI, as this is a project that involves fresh flowers, be sure that you hold off making it until shortly before you intend to give or wear it. You wouldn’t want any droopy blooms!
Big thanks to Lana for the beautiful printable. Be sure to visit her site and check out more of her awesomeness. Now go celebrate your mom! xoxo
