Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts: Creative Gift Cards

Madigan made…  blooming flower pot gift card holders (video).

A live video tutorial for Mother’s Day…. brought to you in part by DecoArt.

Most of the mothers I know always appreciate a handmade gift. Even a simple present like a gift card can be elevated with creative, homemade packaging.

This week I am teaming up with a bunch of other creative bloggers and DecoArt to show you what you can make for Mom this season. DecoArt sent us all some of their craft paint to make something for Mother's Day.


I created these cute planter pot gift card holders this week and I think any mom would appreciate one. (And gift cards are always a nice gift, too!)

Summary of instructions:

  • Paint the inside and outside of the pot with paint.
  • Wrap the wire in a circle to form a base, string it up through the hole in the bottom of the pot and then coil the wire down towards the pot to create a curled holder. (watch the video for more details)
  • Fold a piece of paper around the gift card and slip it into the wire holder. Give your cute gift to mom!

See? So cute and simple to make!
