Here is a quick list of DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas with several of the vintage items I will be selling at the Austin Flea this Saturday:
1. I will have a few vintage hankies up for grabs! One thing you could do is stamp “Mom” or “Mother” on it with fabric paint/ink. Here is a great tutorial to help you get started. Also, if you have mad sewing skills, why don’t you take it to the next level and embroider your handkerchief.
2. I have several milk glass vases that would look lovely with your mama’s favorite bouquet. She’ll not only receive the thoughtful flowers, but also a keepsake vase.
3. Bake your mother a sweet treat and present it on one of the many dishes on display. I will have a vintage cake pedestal, cake carrier, plates, platters… If you need inspiration, here are some vintage cake recipes to try out. Furthermore, you could give your dear mama a vintage cakes cookbook to go with her classic serving piece.
4. Sweet little vintage planters are waiting for you to make them whole again. Run on over to the local hardware store or nursery and fill up your decorative container with succulents. Here are some tips on how to plant and care for them.
There will be more pretties for your mama and just about everything else for everyone’s taste, so come on out and shop vintage with Rare Bird Boutique. There will be tons of other local vendors selling handmade and vintage too! Check here for tomorrow’s show info.
Buy local. Buy handmade.
