Mother's Day DIYs

On May 8 we are celebrating all the wonderful, powerful mothers out there. When it comes to us, every day is Mother’s Day, as there shouldn’t be a day where we are not showing love to the people we love – especially our mothers. However, let’s use Mother’s Day to make our moms smile and show them how much they mean to us. 

"Mother's love is bliss, is peace." - Erich Fromm

Invite your mom for brunch, decorate with her favorite flowers, surprise her with a personalized necklace and spend quality time with her. How about getting creative and creating something beautiful yourself? We thought you might like to try these easy and beautiful DIY ideas for Mother’s Day (of course not only for Mother’s Day, but any occasion). 


Your mom loves reading books or magazines? Then this pretty Macrame bookmark is a perfect little gift for her. 

What you need:

  • Macrame yarn
  • Scissors 
  • Tape
  • Comb

  1. Cut 8 cords, each 1.2 m long
  2. Tape them to the work surface and leave out a few centimeters of cord at the top for the fringes
  3. Tie a square knot with the four left cords as shown in the video
    Important: You need to firmly tighten the knots
  4. Put the two left cords aside
  5. Use the two other cords from your previous square knot and tie a new square knot by adding two more cords from the right
  6. Again, put the two cords from the left aside and tie a square knot by adding the two last cords from the right
  7. Repeat these steps from right to left and back to right in order to create a zigzag pattern
  8. Leave a few centimeters of loose cord at the end
  9. Comb out the fringes and cut them to your desired length
