It’s the 5th and final day of our week of Mother’s Day handmade gift ideas. If you haven’t found your gift idea the past week, then today’s is a great gift for any mom who loves having company over. Having the entire family together is one of the little things in life that brings her so much joy.

Using Archival Re-Inkers, Acrylic Paint, and ICE Resin, you can transform plain white bathroom tiles into beautiful marbled works of art. Select a color that matches her home interior, or make each tile a pop of different color, the possibilities are endless!

Green thumbed. That’s her for sure, she’s got a knack for growing plants and keeping them bloomed and healthy. Whether they’re indoor or outdoor, she knows exactly how much sun they require, when is the best time of year to plant them, how often they need to be watered and just about everything else. She always gets excited for spring time when she gets to plant and watch for bright colored flowers emerging from the ground to liven up her landscape. This year for Mother’s Day, create a handmade gift that helps fuel her passion. Follow today’s blog tutorial to create painted planters that match her decor and then fill with plants for the season. If you can’t decide what plants to buy her, you can paint the planters and make a gardening basket with various gardening supplies, such as a new pair of gardening gloves, a new set of tools, and seed packets to get her garden started this season. Once she pulls the supplies out, she can fill the painted planters with a flower of her choice and use to spruce up her porch!
