Of all the holidays, Mother’s Day is one that usually sneaks up on me. Which is ridiculous. There aren’t many people that I appreciate than my mother and mother-in-law. They help us out a lot. Also, I’m a mother. So this day dedicated to celebrating us shouldn’t be such a sneak attack every year.
This year I’m prepared.
Over the weekend, (two weeks before Mother’s Day!) I painted some tin cans with American Decor’s Chalky Paint in “Refreshing”. It took me like 10 minutes to do this while I was watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion. By the time Kim and Kyle were finished arguing (well, they’re never really going to be finished) I was done.
Next, I used some washi tapes (all from Hobby Lobby) and this free printable from The Painted Arrow to decorate the tin cans. I just printed it out in a tiny size and used my scalloped paper punch to cut them out. I found the perfect-sized little potted roses at the grocery store.
My little model did such a great job holding the can. She just couldn’t resist taking a big sniff of the roses. 😉
Are those lashes perfection, or what?
Check out my Mother’s Day Ideas from years past:
…and a few weeks ago I made these Flowers in Tin Cans as a Cinco de Mayo idea, but I think could make a sweet Mother’s Day Gift. If your mom likes tomatoes. 😉
Have a great day!
