Mother’s Day Printable Vase with Dove Chocolates {Free printable}


Today’s post and project were a match made in heaven. When I think of my sweet mom and the things that she likes, dark chocolate and sweet words are at the top. I wanted to think of a unique way to give my mom a “card” for Mother’s Day and incorporate her love of dark chocolate in there as well so when I was contacted about this opportunity, I was thrilled because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t LOVE Dove chocolate? I came up with a fun printable vase that you can fill with chocolates and add homemade or store bought flowers (depending on how much time you have)!

Would that not just make a WOW statement when you give it to your awesome mom?

So let’s talk about how to make the project.

Things you will need:

Printables at the end of this post

scissors

glue

kabob sticks

flowers

transparency or plastic sleeve (found in office supplies)

pen

LOTS of Dove Dark Chocolates (because you HAVE to sample it to make sure your mom is going to LOVE it!) ;)

Directions:

1-Print and cut out vase and tags

2-Cut out center of front of vase. Cut out a rectangle of plastic (I used a transparency) and glue to inside of vase..this will create a window so you can see those yummy Dove Chocolates!

3-Read below to know how to put together vase:

4- Make flowers by gluing flowers on the kabob sticks (I found a whole bunch of cute flowers at Target and Hobby Lobby to put together) or I added some patterned paper in my printables for you to make your own flowers.

5- fill vase with Dove chocolates and add in flowers

6- use tags to write all of the things you LOVE about your mom and glue them on the sticks of the flowers

7- add on the “Happy Mother’s Day” and “thanks for being sweet” tags and any other embellishments that will pull your project together.

8- give it to your mom and let her know how much you LOVE her!

There are so many things I love about this project, but my favorite is that every single person who does this will come out with a different looking project because what YOUR mom will love will be different than what MY mom will love.

Dove has so many types of Dark Chocolate so you can find just the right one for your mom OR use them all and your mom can decide which she likes the best! My whole family test tasted the chocolates and we loved the Sea Salt Caramel and Mint Swirl kinds!

I’d LOVE to see your project when you are done. This is a perfect project to get your kids involved and make it a family project! Have fun making this the best Mother’s Day yet for those amazing moms in your life.

Printable Holly Wreath {free printable}

There are so many things I love about the holidays, but one of my favorite is hand making some of the decorations that make our house festive.  One thing that I love about my project today is that it would make a PERFECT girl’s night project.  There is nothing better than creating with others, right?!  In the last few months, I have been making a new printable wreath for each holiday, so I thought one for the Christmas season was in order:

These wreaths are so fun to make. The leaves are all printable, so the list of needs are small!

To make the wreath you will need:

-the free download for this wreath. You can find them HERE.

-scissors

-hot glue

-wreath form (you could even use cardboard for this!)

To begin, first print and cut out the leaves you want to make your wreath. There are 3 colors, 1 solid and 1 pattern for each color, making 6 different leaves you can use on your wreath. It is so fun to think of all the possibilities you could end up with. Use one color or use all 3…it is totally up to you!

Second, after cutting out your leaves, fold the bottom half of each leaf…this will give it dimension as you start gluing.  Next, prepare your wreath form by wrapping it in fabric. I just used hot glue at each of the ends to secure it to the form.

Then, start gluing. This is where your wreath will truly become yours! Use all one color, mix and match, the choice is yours! Overlap each line of leaves until you have completed the wreath. I started mine by gluing 4-5 in a straight line, but found as I kept going, it worked great when everything wasn’t perfectly lined up! When you glue, just add a dab of glue to the bottom of the leaf (where it is folded) and add. This makes it easy at the end when you are joining the leaves where you are ending and where you started. You can tuck a few extra leaves wherever you feel like you need more. This really is a wreath that you can make all your own. Isn’t it so fun?!

To finish off this wreath, I quickly stitched some felt to make a bow and hanger. You can see my Fall wreath and Thanksgiving wreath and see that you really don’t need anything else, but I also added holly berries in the printables if you want to add some red pops! I would love to see how you make this wreath your own.

I hope you have the Happiest of Holidays!

Don’t forget to visit my Christmas shop where you can find lot of last minute printable gifts and decor. Perfect for that someone who has everything!
