I love Mother’s Day. I really look for any excuse to get an extra gift each year. Kidding. That’s not why I love this day. I don’t count Mother’s Day as MY official Mother’s Day (I reserve that day for Vita’s birthday because that’s the day I became a mom), but I love to celebrate the mother’s in my life every May. While it may seem easy to just buy a bouquet from the store or a gift card to a restaurant, handmade gifts always hold a special place in the heart. I love to make my gifts if I can. And it’s even better if those gifts don’t break the bank. So I scoured the web (and Proper’s archives!) to share 10 DIY projects to make for Mom that she’ll just adore!
