An Upcycled Gift for Mummy’s Day

Monday, 24 March 2014

Hellllooooo everyone! I am sure you are all remembering that it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday. I certainly am ‘cos my Mummy is awesome and I will be spoiling her ALL day! In my experience (of which I have packed a lot into my whole two years!) mummies like handmade gifts which are made with love (and sparkly, expensive presents too but that’s not for this blog!) So, here is a great idea of a lovely gift you can make for this weekend. And the best bit is you have to eat some yummy cheese first!

Pansies in Cheese Boxes

You will need:

To make:

1. Eat the yummy cheese!

2. To make the box a little deeper I took the top off the lid and glued the sides of the lid to the the sides of the bottom. I glued the leftover top to the bottom just to make it a little more robust (and to have a nicer finish.)

3. Ask a grown up to drill a few drainage holes in the bottom of your cheese box.

4. Fill with pansies and get your hands mucky!

5. Tie a pretty ribbon around the outside of the box.

Isn't this the cutest gift?

Alpines such as sempervivum would also look lovely in this little handmade pot.

A big thank you to the lovely people at Kyle Books for sending me a copy of their Gifts from the Garden book by Debora Robertson which features this lovely project.

I hope you all have a lovely day with your mummies on Sunday.
