Mother’s Day Gift Ideas


Show mom how much you love her this Mother’s Day by giving her two homemade gifts from the heart.  Creating a gift with your own two hands is a sweet way to say “I love you” to all the special moms in your life.  Your empty Robert Rothschild Farm jars can easily be up-cycled into flower vases and faux mercury glass candle holders.  Show mom how much she means to you by creating our DIY up-cycled Mother’s Day gifts this weekend.
