March 26, 2017, is another annual chance to thank the one special lady in our lives for basically giving up theirs in exchange for our well-being. This occasion, more so than any other, begs for an especially personal and thought-out gift solution (although exotic trips and new kitchen facilities are always appreciated). Here are some of the best creative mother’s day gift solutions found on YouTube.com – your ways of showing mom that she’s still the greatest superhero in your life!
1. Chalkboard Wall Art
The second half of this Mother’s Day-themed DIY decor video features the uploader, TheLittleWorldofEline, creating a super simple, yet marvelously sweet, wall art composition. Basically, all you need is a bit of chalkboard paint, a bit of tape, and a cute picture of you and your mom when she was still able to hold you. Tape the photo (preferably a polaroid) to the table and scribble on your special message! This does not require a lot of time, and it’s open to your interpretation.
2. Flower Wall Art
Ever promised someone to present them with all the flowers in the world? Well, you might not be able to give them all there is, but you might definitely give them a permanent bouquet! This type of flower wall art is another of those “incredibly effortless to create yet beautiful to look at” Mother’s Day gift solutions, perfect for the warm springy feeling that’s been in the air for the past couple of weeks.
3. Recycling Old Frames
Albeit it’s another chalkboard wall art solution, it’s also an incredible example of recycling seemingly useless decor elements you might find in your attic. White or champagne pink frames will beautifully enhance the message on the board itself, which, as you will see, can be actually withheld in an intentionally naive aesthetic, in a sense reminding that despite the time rushing by, all of us will always remain Momma’s precious babies.
4. Situation Photos
Besides a selection of interesting DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas, this video features an interesting and humorous greeting card solution which actually requires nothing more than a camera and some basic photo editing applications. Here, you can once again break the rules and play with the form. Call your brothers and sisters and recreate your favourite childhood photo for a hilarious and super sweet effect! The whole idea can actually be turned into a humorous photo book depicting the hardships of being a full-time mother!
5. Big Feet & Small Feet
Without any puns, this “touching” tribute is one of the more engaging and original Mother’s Day gift solutions. Not only does it allow you to involve the whole family, the concept is probably based on the idea of a multi-generational gift! Ignite the creativity of your kids, have a fun time together and basically celebrate mother’s day in the process!
6. Ceramic Polaroids
Simplicity is one of the main criteria for us; therefore, the appealing combination of tiles and photos simply could not have escaped our radar! The resulting little ceramic “polaroids” can be assembled in collages or cleverly positioned all around the house, serving as little reminders of all the great times you have experienced thus far.
7. Splashing Colours
A Mother’s Day Jackson Pollock, if you like, this is yet another easy-to-execute project that will provide you with colorful and contemporary imagery akin to the aesthetic of some tasteful record cover. This includes a couple of colour splashes, a very laconic message and a lot of freedom and improvisation.
The ever-growing popularity of Tumblr as a legitimate visual art platform is undeniable. Only naturally, the aesthetic had to break from the virtual space and to some degree influence the way we create tangible artworks with our painter’s brush. This is one of the examples- a simple yet irresistible flower pattern with chilly hues and a simple message written in a lovely font. Moms will appreciate.
From creative canvas prints to pancakes, every little thing made with an investment of heart will surely make the special lady feel appreciated! After all, creating any of these is just a drop in the ocean when compared with the amount of time your mother needed to raise you!
