Spring Has Sprung

I thought I'd post this photo of the Mothers Day gift I made my mom last year. It may give you an idea for a handmade gift. Mothers day is in 6 weeks so it's plenty of time to come up with something special and lasting. I love flowers but they don't last unless you give some for the yard.
This is a trio of paper mache boxes that I painted in spring colors and with little painted embellishments. The bottom two boxes can be utilized for storage. The top box is filled with soft delicate greens, tiny flowers, and a small electric candle light with a silicone bulb. It has an on/off switch inline so you don't have to plug and unplug the light. Be sure to seal the boxes well to help when you dust it lightly. I think it makes a wonderful accent light for little vignettes. Maybe it could be placed on a night table or inside of a display cupboard.
If your mom likes a particular flower you could incorporate that into the display or a particular color to go with her decor. Inside you could tuck a handwritten note or some vintage family photos for some added memories.
Happy Spring and Have a blessed Easter ♥ Dawn

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead...
