Guest Post on Lil Luna: A Spa DIY Mother’s Day Gift

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

I had so much fun putting this lovely gift idea together for Lil Luna and her readers.

I always thought spa products like these would be a little time consuming to make, but it was easy peasy and really enjoyable!

A Homemade Spring Wreath

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Sarah has been on the hunt for a spring wreath for her front door for a really long time…years in fact.

Every spring wreath has been too big, flouncy, ‘fake’ looking or expensive for her liking, so this year she finally decided to make her own.

She bought a simple grapevine wreath HERE for $4.99, whitewashed it with craft paint and used four stems of paper florals from Hobby Lobby (in store) to tuck into the wreath.

Isn’t she lovely?

Under $20 and less than an hour…and so much sweeter that it’s a one-of-a-kind and we’re all happy Sarah finally has a spring wreath on the door!

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Personalized Plant Pots

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Happy Monday!

We hope you all had a fantastic weekend, we really felt spring for the first time this year and are excited for all the season has to offer.

We shared this Mother’s Day gift idea on Lil Luna a few years ago, but still think it’s pretty fab if you’re looking for a homemade gift idea for your mum, (or anyone really) be sure to keep it in mind!

We just love the spring feel, and homemade touch!

You Will Need:

Terra-cotta Plant Pot

Puff Paint

Pencil

How To:

Simply free-hand a design (like the dots below), or sketch a design with a pencil and go over it with the paint (like the monogram above).

Just make sure you have fun, and don’t think too hard about the process. Simple is almost always best.

Once your design is finished, just let it set for about four hours, and then you’re ready to add the plants.

It was fun to decorate a few different sized pots, as they look great grouped together. Maybe having each child decorate one and create a whole garden would be sweet.

Adding a little ‘homemade’ says “I love you” more than anything.

Do you agree?
