I swear someone might actually think I have a green thumb with all of the plant stand DIY’s I’ve been pulling out of my sleeve here lately. It’s cool though, I’m totally happy with being a poser if it means I get to keep this cute DIY acacia wood plant stand around, I just love it!
Even better, it’s actually an Ikea hack, but I didn’t want to get too crazy on you guys all at once. I mean, I know you only need half a reason to run laps around something with it being Friday and all, but just promise that if you do happen to run by an Ikea on your weekend excitement high that you’ll buy up one of these guys to DIY sometime over the next few days…
I feel buying for a parent is one of those deals that’s either a no-brainer, or you seriously scour for the perfect gift for days on end with no luck. To help ease your perfect gift woes for the trendy Mom, I’ve rounded up 15 Mother’s Day gift ideas for under $100! I left out the token flowers and playing the “I’m going to make dinner” card since I figured those options are still always a given, but the good news is that all of these items are mail order so with one click of a button you’ll still be on time. Just be sure to send me some gilded chocolates as a thank you, too, okay?
Hedley & Bennett handmade apron, $80 // pearl cuff, $34 // voluspa suede blanc candle, $16 // parker crossbody bag, $97 // naked cosmetics eye palette, $54 // spring pastel gilded chocolates, $25 // hanging fern, $48 // striped turkish towel, $32 // custom hardcover photo book, $69 // best mom tea towel, $11 // rifle paper recipe box, $34 // rifle paper journals (set of 3), $13 // lucia soap set, $19 // marble hexagon coasters, $24 // tilt cutting boards, $30
If I’m known for something when all of this DIY madness comes to an end someday, I hope it’s as the girl who used weird objects for completely opposite purposes than what they’re actually made for… that sounds fun. It’s definitely not going to be for my shining use of original one-liners considering all I could come up with for this DIY patterned matches vanity tray was “light your morning routine on fire”, which seemed a bit too tragic.
Lucky for you I’m elaborating even further on this matches discussion over on Designlovefest, where you can see the full scoop on how to make your own! Best of luck!
