Collection: How Ashley Made Gifting for Mother’s Day Fun and Easy
Who hasn’t wracked their brain thinking about gifting for Mother’s Day? We go looking for something personal, useful, and delightful, something that conveys just how much we love and appreciate Mom. It’s no wonder so many moms end up with an Amazon card, flowers, or a coupon for free hugs. While Mom’s sure to appreciate any gift, something from the heart is sure to be treasured.
So when Ashley showed us what she’d made for the mothers in her life, we knew we had to share it with you. It’s colorful, pretty, practical, and completely unique. Even better, you’ll have so much fun creating that you won’t want to limit this to gifting for Mother’s Day. It could become your new go-to for gifts all year-round.
For Mother’s Day this year, I wanted to give my mom, sister-in-law, and best friends something really special, something they’d really enjoy. It needed to be something unique that they couldn’t just go buy for themselves. The cherry on top would be if I could make these gifts myself.
After thinking about it for a while, I found the perfect gift - marbled ring dishes, made from polymer clay. The ring dishes were easy and fun to make, and I was able to customize them to match each woman’s favorite color palettes. This easy DIY craft allowed me to get creative in gifting for Mother’s Day and show my love and appreciation for these women.
You can do it, too! Here’s how I made my Marbled Clay Ring Dish
- 3+ oven bake clay (white, black, and colored)
- 6” cookie cutter or large can or jar to trace around
- Cookie sheet
- Waxed paper
- Gold liquid gilding paint or gold paint pen
- Rolling pin or large round jar/glass
Wrap it up and give it to Mom. She’ll love that you created something so special just for her, and you’ll love knowing she thinks of you every time she puts her rings in this pretty gift.
