A simple Mother's Day gift to make

If you or your kids have even the tiniest hint of craftiness they can make this simple but very cute Mother's Day gift for tomorrow! I found all the items around the house and it didn't take long to make!

What you'll need:

Baby food glass jar or similar
Household paint
A tag (bought or make one)
Stolen flower from the garden, or you could use a little fern?

1. drop a bit of paint into the clean glass jar, twist the jar around until the paint covers the inside, turn it upside down onto a cooling rack placed on some newspaper. Pop this in the airing cupboard over night to dry.

2. Once dry, tie round the raffia and lace and attach the gift card, i wrote happy mother's day (of course).

3. Much to my husband disgust i used a tea spoon to pop the dirt into the jar, then pop in the flower (don't forget to get some good roots on the plant). Finished!
