Nothing says "Welcome to Our Home" like a wreath on the front door.

This wreath not only smells great, but it's really easy to make. All you need to do is cut up some orange slices and dry them out. Then you just glue them to a pre-made wreath that can be found at any crafts store! And the citrus scent is perfect for spring and summer!

Here's another gift for those mothers that like to spend their time baking!

It's a great gift to incorporate your little ones in, as well! Just buy a blank canvas apron and some paint, and with a little creativity, you can make a brand new apron that your mom will be able to use for many years to come.

Little Page Turners

Speaking of vases...

If you're a wine drinker, you probably have a collection of corks piling up. How about using them to make your mother a wonderful vase or planter? So go grab those corks and some glue and get started!

Design Improvised

One of my least favorite things about cooking is constantly misplacing the recipe while I'm trying to make the food.

Using old pieces of wood and some paint, you could make your mother her very own recipe holder. She'll thank you for making her life a little bit easier!

How about making her a luggage tag that she'll never lose? Take a recycled luggage tag and use your creativity to revamp it! Your mother will be happy to look for it at baggage claim.

K-Cups are certainly convenient, but they do create a lot of waste, so here's a nice way to reuse those plastic cups.
