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
transparency or plastic sleeve (found in office supplies)
LOTS of Dove Dark Chocolates (because you HAVE to sample it to make sure your mom is going to LOVE it!)
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.
