The official countdown to Mother’s Day is here. Have you found the perfect gift that will bring a smile across Mom’s face? No? We can help. If your mom is less into cooking and more into shopping, then give her a tote with a handmade touch that she can fill up with all her favorite finds.

Paint a Seagrass Basket for Mother's Day

First, head over to your local craft store or home furnishings spot and pick up a large, natural seagrass basket. (I found this one on sale at a craft store for less than $15!) Then, pick out a water-based latex paint in her favorite color. (My mom loves yellow. Plus, it’s the perfect shade for summer.) You’ll use painter’s tape to form a design and pattern of your choosing and paint within the lines. Easy as pie!
