Why is it that Mother's Day is the second biggest commercialized holiday when there are so many different DIY projects out there?
In preschool, children make their moms clay handprint molds and cards with dry pasta glued on. So why not return to your crafty childhood ambitions and make your mother something special?
You may be too old to give a handprint or some dried up pasta art, but some DIY flowers will go over nicely. And you can make some beautiful-looking fake flowers out of Q-tip cotton swabs and Styrofoam balls, or cupcake liners and pipe cleaners.
Don't have a bunch of cotton swabs or cupcake liners lying around? If you have plastic spoons and a candle, you can always fashion your dear mom a bouquet of plastic spoon roses. No watering required.
