Message Garland

I plan on actually making this for my mamas. Make this easy envelope garland with envelopes you have lying around your home, using all of one kind of envelope or vary them like above, fill them with message to your mama that will brighten her day! Your mama can open them all up on Mother’s Day or maybe she’d want to open them whenever she needs a little pick me up :).

If you have a lot of siblings this is kind of brilliant. Make a shared piece of art using finger painting. I love that it’s a really colorful gift that can represent all of you.

Has your mama passed you down her collection of recipes? If she has why don’t you take a few of your childhood favorites and put them in pretty frames for her, it will remind her of you loving to gobble up her food and she’ll have a charming piece of art.

      You know what I was thinking of doing? Also putting like a random gift card to starbucks in an envelope and like a picture instead of a message, ect…to switch it up!

    These ideas are all so sweet! I never, ever know what to get my mom for mother’s day and usually just end up with flowers. Time to step up my game.

    These are fun ideas, and I am with you my family has so many sayings that I am still trying to remember. Framing the good ones would be very cool! I also like the shared art concept. πŸ™‚ /Madison
