DIY Mother’s Day Gift Idea

So right now I am on a really big plane with a 3 year old and a 6 year old, sans husband, flying across the Atlantic Ocean. Craziness. Somehow we’ve learned to embrace this part of our lives and even somewhat enjoy it. (I can say that now that they’re out of the baby/toddler/diaper stages. Those were not fun flights…) Good thing I actually like airplane food!
So today a good blogging friend offered to take over the blog for a day and I can’t tell you how helpful it is. Not only that, she has a super cute tutorial to share with you all! Thank you so much, Kimmie!
Hello, beautiful Ma Nouvelle Mode readers!
My name is Kimmie, and I blog over at Sugar and Dots.

I love Natalia’s view of motherhood, style, and togetherness.

I am definitely more crafty than fashionable, and with Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations around the corner, I thought a quick gift idea would be fun.
I’m here to show you how to make a faux rosewood wreath.
After making one on my own, I spent an entire day with my family making another one that we gifted to our neighbor.
Let’s jump to it…
Faux Rosewood Wreath Tutorial
No lie- probably the most time-consuming project I’ve ever done.
But the result is gorgeous.
I am beyond happy with my wreath and leave it up year-round.
Supplies needed:
Styrofoam wreath form
Hot glue (lots!)
Old books or a mega stack of newspapers
Rhinestones (optional)
Scrapbooking ink (optional)
I followed this tutorial and used old book pages.
(Stack a few pages together and cut them all at once to save you some time!)
After I had a large pile of rosettes, I glued them down onto my wreath.
No rhyme or reason necessary- just glue until the space is filled.
When it’s full, add a rhinestone to each rosette center, and lightly press ink onto the edges.
(Pay no attention to the words in the rosettes, mmmkay?)
I have this hanging by my front door, and it looks great at every angle:
Be sure to let me know if you have made one- I love looking through your projects!
You can always link up to my weekly linky party, too.
Thank you sweet Natalia, for having me here today!
