Upcycled Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Upcycled Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Ya’ll! Mother’s Day is in a week and a half. Time to get crackin’!

No matter your age, moms still love homemade gifts…well, at least MY mom does. No matter what your  mom loves- gardening, jewelry, cooking, sewing, home decor, etc., gifting her with something that you made is extra special. She may not hang your gifts on the fridge anymore, but hanging them on the wall might be even better.

So if you’re feeling crafty, here are some handmade Mother’s Day gift ideas, Sadie Seasongoods-style. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

    I love these ideas. I really want to make the bracelet and have the “ingredients” to do so. I will let you know how it turns out. Getting ready to open a vendor booth and will need all the merch I can make. Hopefully.

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Thank you for the kind words, Linda- I always appreciate that! Please do let me know how yours turns out and best of luck with the booth- an idea I’ve toyed with myself but never had the guts to do!!

      • Linda Noyte says:

        I’m 66. If I don’t do it now it will be never. I finally told myself that I can’t succeed if I don’t try !!! I have made some nice jewelry and knitted items that I hope will sell.

        • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

          You are an inspiration!! Come back after you’ve been open for a while and let me know how it’s going!
