Mother’s Day DIY

You may have heard me say this before, but I don’t believe that showing someone you care means you have to spend lots of money on them. Often, the best presents are the DIY and homemade gifts, filled to the brim with heartfelt effort and love.

See my post about showing people you love them here.

So. this Mother’s Day, I decided to do a DIY breakfast date for my mumma. And, as much as I could, it was homemade.

To make the homemade bunting… 

I used: a pack of pastel coloured card, glue, a big piece of white card, mini craft pegs, ribbon & scissors. And a lot of patience.

I drew the bubble letters out in pencil onto the white card, cut those out and stuck them to the coloured card. I chose pink, but you can choose your Mum’s favourite colour!

Then, I cut the letters from the pink card, and hung the letters onto the ribbon with the pegs.

With the left over bits of card I created flowers and hearts in every colour to add a bit more colour into the bunting.

I then tied the bunting across the kitchen over the breakfast table. Cute, huh?

To make the homemade croissants… 

Inspired by a croissant recipe The Londoner had posted, I decided to give making this special brunch treat a go, but instead stuffed them with my mum’s favourite nut: walnuts. All you need is

I used: a roll of Jus-Roll fresh croissant dough, nutella, walnuts (or nuts of your choice, or go without), and some fresh fruit to serve.

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and separate the pieces of dough.
  2. Put a spoonful of nutella and a sprinkle of nuts on the base of the triangle.
  3. Roll towards the tip.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until they’re golden brown, and serve with fresh berries.

So simple but sooooo yummy! Thanks for the recipe, Rosie! 

Here’s the special lady herself.

And I even got an extra cuddle from monkey to say thanks for being a lovely mummy! Have you seen Ollie’s post about Mother’s day here?

I had such a lovely morning with Mum without either of us cutting it short to get back to work.

It’s so easy to take for granted the special people in your life. But, honestly, I would be lost without my mum. She loves me and supports everything I do unconditionally.

My mum has always given me the freedom to follow my heart and pursue my dreams, and I have so much to thank her for.

(I know you’re reading this). I love you, Mum x
