Mother’s Day is this Sunday May 10th! If you haven’t thought of a gift to give your mom I’ve got a few last-minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for you today, 15 of them involve Mason Jars. If you like this post you may also enjoy this post with 50 DIY gifts for Mom.
Yesterday I was on WDRB in Louisville sharing some simple ideas for cute handmade gifts for Mother’s Day. It was my second time on WDRB in the Morning and I didn’t throw up or pass out… (even though I had dreams the night before I would do both… and fall down the stairs and break all of the Mason Jars on my way into the station *wink*).
First let me tell you, figuring out how long 3 minutes is while you’re live on the air might as well be a question on the SAT. I think that’s the hardest thing to get used to, knowing how much to talk and when to start wrapping things up. Luckily Candice (the morning show host) is a pro and kept me on track. I was much less nervous this time, and watched the playback and picked up on a few things to work on before my next segment, but overall I felt pretty good about it.
You’ll be able to catch me on WDRB in the morning every few weeks now, sharing creative ideas and projects. This summer I’ll also be talking about some crafts to help keep your kids occupied while they are out of school.
Okay, now for the Mason Jar Crafts!! If you need a quick (but thoughtful) gift for a Mom in your life on Mother’s Day, a Mason Jar might be just what you’re looking for. You can customize it based on what mom likes and adapt it to any price range. I love the idea that Candice shared on air of filling it up with love notes or coupons.
Here are 15 Mason Jar Crafts that any Mom would LOVE… several of them were featured in my on air segment and a few are from friends around the web.
You can download the tags for FREE on my Templates page.
1. For a Mom who loves to bake, fill your Mason Jar with some cute cupcake liners. Throw in a new set of measuring spoons (because you can never have enough of those in my opinion) and tie a couple of colorful spatulas to the outside to finish it off.
2. Mom’s can always use a little bit of pampering. Fill up a Mason Jar with a few of her favorite colors of fingernail polish and some spa inspired items too.
3. Does Mom have a favorite Candy or Color? Chocolate is almost always a good idea… most Mom’s will appreciate a jar full of yummy treats.
4. If you’re totally stumped, give Mom a gift card, package it up in a Mason Jar to make the gift a little bit more creative. Get the how to here.
5. For Mom’s that love to sew, a DIY Sewing Kit would be a great gift. Use a bit of fabric and stuffing to make a pin cushion for the top and fill it up with colorful notions.
6. I have a good friend who LOVES jelly beans, I can’t say that I blame her! If Mom’s a fan fill a jar with a colorful assortment of beans and top it off with a flower for fun.
7. I think this Mommy Survival Kit from Classy Clutter is absolutely adorable (and oh so practical). Hop on over to their blog for the deets.
8. Also from the girls at Classy Clutter, a Spa in a Jar for Mom. You can grab the printable over on their blog.
9. Another cute Spa inspired Mason Jar gift is this Pedicure in a Jar from The Gunny Sack. I love the individual vials of product she put inside.
10. I think most Mom’s love to get flowers (I know I do)…. Why not paint the Mason jar to make a vase that she can use for other things after Mother’s Day? Get the details over at It All Started with Paint
11. Cookies, like Chocolate and Paris are always a good idea. Package up some of moms favorites for her to enjoy on Mother’s Day.
12. I love these pint-sized Mason Jar Sewing kits over at Wait til your Father gets Home... she even includes a tutorial to make the pincushion on top.
13. These jars at eighteen25 are one of my all time favorite projects! Hop on over there to get the full tutorial.
15. and last but not least, these craft storage jars from Nesting in the Bluegrass, because…well hello! There’s a horse on top!
