I’ll just come right out and say it: I’m a mama’s girl. So naturally, Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. My mom is a rock star and it’s so much fun showering her with love on her special day. Whether you’re celebrating a mother, grandmother, sister, friend or mother figure this May, let her know how amazing she is with some of our favorite DIY gift and project ideas.

DIY Ideas for Mom

Me and my gals at HGTV Handmade just love a good challenge, so this week we all tackled a summer classic–cool and crisp white canvas sneakers. After a lot of thought (and, I confess, while watching Big Hero Six), I zeroed in on my idea. Could I take my sharpie tie-dye idea and use that as a base for a DIY galaxy print? Watch the video to see if I hit the mark.

These sneaks would be an excellent addition to festival fashion, but me? I think I’ll be rocking them on my deck all summer long. What do you guys think about galaxy prints? Too out there for you? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Outdoor spaces: We love them during the spring and summer, but it’s easy to overlook them the rest of the year. If your patio or backyard looks like an afterthought or feels disjointed from the rest of your home, never fear. By incorporating stylish furniture and cozy accents, you can create an outdoor space that’s just as appealing as your home’s interior. We collected some tips from designer Emily Henderson, who transformed this formerly plain patio into a cozy outdoor room with a collected, bohemian vibe. Get the look with these seven ideas and products:

GOLD-DIPPED EGGS

These industrial-inspired eggs are perfect for industrial-modern design lovers! Abby Larson, Founder/Editor of Style Me Pretty Living, used grape juice and vinegar to create the cool, concrete-inspired effect. Stop there for a version you can turn into egg salad — or add a gold accent for a decorative-only egg with lots of sparkle.

MATERIALS

  • grape juice
  • white vinegar
  • white eggs
  • glass or metal bowl
  • gold paint

DIRECTIONS

Step 1: Hard boil or blow out your eggs. (If hard boiled, keep in mind these eggs will not be edible later. If blown out, you will need to place something on top of the bowl to keep the eggs covered in the dye).

Step 2: Mix equal parts grape juice & vinegar in a bowl, enough to submerge your eggs. Place eggs in the bowl and leave overnight.

Step 3: The next day, remove eggs from the bowl and rinse off. Use a paper towel to rub away the foamy layer, revealing the marbled surface.

Step 4: Dip egg partially into a cup of gold paint. Place upside-down in egg carton to dry.

Step 5: Place in a bowl on your Easter table to enjoy!

4 MORE EASTER EGG DIYS

Truth time: If DIY were a grade in school I probably would have already been left behind, though not for lack of enthusiasm!

I really want to be a DIY ninja but knowing my own limitations, I try to remind myself that I need to stay focused on projects that don’t leave me in a puddle of tears on my living room floor with glue gun cartridges stuck in my hair. This is why I was so excited when I had a recent brainstorm and decided I wanted to nail a rug to my wall.

How to Hang a Rug on the Wall

As a renter, I’m always looking for easy ways to upgrade my home without putting my security deposit in jeopardy. Luckily, this rug-nailing bonanza fits the bill perfectly. It’s easier than removable wallpaper (no seams to line up!), doesn’t involve paint (woo hoo!) and can drastically change the look of your space.

All you need is a rug, some nails and a hammer. (You can also do this project with screws and a drill.) Here’s how:

1. Choose a rug that will work well with your space. I was hoping to zhush up my bathroom and wanted to go bold, so I chose a brightly colored cotton rug. It’s best if you can find a thinner rug that’s easier to attach to your wall. I would also recommend choosing a rug that’s as close as you can get in size to the space you need to fill, but err on the side of slightly larger.

2. Decide how you’d like to position the rug on your wall. Originally, I wanted to cover my entire wall (and, in fact, purchased two rugs so that I could). However, once I got the first rug up, I decided I loved how it looked, so I ditched my plan for covering the whole wall. Hold your rug up and see if you prefer to start at the ceiling level, the floor level or perhaps hang it in the middle of the wall like it’s a piece of art.

3. Start nailing the rug to your wall. If your rug is slightly larger (as mine was) you can fold it back a bit until it’s as wide or as tall as you  need it to be. You can nail the rug to the wall all around the perimeter. Depending on the fabric of your rug, you might need more or fewer nails to keep it up there. You will also likely need someone to help you hold the rug in place as you hammer all the nails in.

That’s it. Seriously!

Have you ever tried this wall hanging technique? Or, what art alternatives have you tried? Let us know in the comments below.

Believe it or not, Easter is the second highest candy-consuming holiday in America — right behind Halloween, of course. It’s no wonder, with several popular candy brands featuring Easter editions every year. Who wouldn’t love egg-shaped chocolates covered in pastel-colored candy coating? If you aren’t quite sure which candy to fill your kids’ (or your own) baskets with this year, we’ve listed our favorites you can buy — or if you’re feeling ambitious — DIY!

DIY: Chocolate Coconut Candy

These white- and dark-chocolate covered coconut balls have a delicious filling made with real raspberries. Place them in your kid’s Easter basket, or wrap them in cellophane for guests to enjoy after Easter brunch.

The recent arrival of spring can mean only one thing: Easter with all its colored-egg-and-chocolate-bunny-awesomeness is right around the corner. And, what do you need to hold said eggs and candy? A cute Easter bucket, of course!

Handmade Feathered Chick Easter Bucket

Make your own with our step-by-step instructions >>

Yes, I said “bucket” not “basket.” Readily available at your local hardware or craft store, a bucket is a great stand-in for a traditional Easter basket because its smooth sides allow for all kinds of crafty creativity. Plus, it’s just the right size for stashing your kid’s stuff — like small toys or art supplies — the other 364 days of the year.

Easy and inexpensive (you just need a bucket and a few craft-store materials), this is one project you can tackle while watching a favorite show. Get crafting with these step-by-step instructions:

Something must be in the water around these parts. Between Marianne’s nightstand and Liz’s upcoming dresser project, it seems like everyone around here has caught the DIY furniture bug. Our readers are no exception.

Since Liz is still deciding how to transform her own bedroom dresser, we rounded up some favorites from the #HGTVmakeover hashtag on Instagram to keep the creative juices flowing.

We’re loving the trend of colorful custom furniture to add fun and personality to a room. I feel like we all have a piece like this one from @Heather_Hill5 taking up space in a garage. Her finished gray dresser is another example of how far a coat of paint and new knobs can go in reviving a piece of furniture that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Logan from @thestylishpeach shares the details of this mid-century modern makeover on her blog. In her case, the original dresser had too many scratches and stains for it to work as-is. A few smart and trendy choices make this piece look like it came straight from a fancy furniture show room.

Ombre is a trend that’s still making the rounds on window treatments, decorative art and focal walls. We especially love it on the drawers of a dresser, seen below in a lovely blue-gray hue by @beautymark_furniture.  Want to make your own ombre dresser? We’ll show you how.

I absolutely love gardening. But because I live in an apartment, my “garden” is just an assortment of containers that I refresh each spring. So, instead of spending money on new pots this year, I decided to search for creative ways to revamp my basic terra cotta containers. I found out there’s so much you can do with them, from paint and fabric to materials like rope. Check out these easy and creative planter projects I’m dying to try this spring.

ModPodge + Fabric

These adorable fabric-wrapped pots are super simple and make perfect Mother’s Day gifts. Although they aren’t intended for outside use, they’re great for potting orchids, indoor succulents or as decorative catchalls. Get the step-by-step instructions >>

I’ve been following blogger Victoria Hudgins for a while. Her craft blog, A Subtle Revelry, is a place you can get lost in for hours. Pinning, bookmarking — it’s dangerous (in a good way.) Then, I got her newest book in my mailbox and I knew I’d be spending my summer painting, gluing and molding clay on the patio.

Materially Crafted on HGTV

By Victoria Hudgins; STC Craft | A Melanie Falick Book

Materially Crafted: A DIY Primer for the Design-Obsessed is the perfect DIY guide for the design-savvy, including 35 easy projects organized by the materials used. (I love this part!) From spray paint and concrete to thread and clay, you can try materials you’ve never used or make projects using materials you know well. To me, this is the perfect time to try something new. Why not give wood burning or embroidery a shot? This DIY primer is perfect for anyone embracing their crafty side for the first time (or those who just want to keep developing their design chops), like spray painting a chair, making wax bud vases, plaster monograms, French knot artwork, a plywood game table and much more.

3 EASY CRAFTS TO CREATE OUTDOOR AMBIANCE

To celebrate the start of spring (!!!), Victoria is sharing one of her wax projects from Materially Crafted to prep for outdoor entertaining. She’s quick to mention in her material primer that “wax is one of the strangest materials to craft with.” She writes, “It has been around forever and has been used to sustain life, give light, propel many modern technologies forward and depict creepy lifeless celebrity figures in museums. Yet, it is such a basic material — heat it up, and it becomes pliable and can be manipulated into a multitude of projects.” Translation: Wax crafts galore!

While you might immediately think of Pinterest as the first social media site to hit up when you’re looking for new DIY projects, I’m here to say: don’t forget about Instagram!

tellloveandchocolate Instagram

@TellLoveAndChocolate: I’m constantly undecided about whether I’m more obsessed with tassels or pom poms, but blogger Sara Walk has put me firmly in the tassel camp after seeing her fab handmade tassel blanket. She also features some fantastic entertaining ideas that would liven up any party, like this sweet banner.

So, I’m with Marianne. I don’t love St. Patrick’s Day. I do, however, adore the color green and love a good party, so cheers! With only a few days until the BIG day, you’re probably looking for ways to celebrate. Luckily, everything we have is green and filled with Irish charm.

St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas

1. Wear This: Felt Shamrocks. As I’ve gotten older, my fear of being pinched on March 17 has dissolved. However, I love sporting at least a little bit of green for the sake of tradition. These felt shamrocks are simple to make and you can rock them in your hair, on your shirt or any other way you can think of. Seriously, once you make one, you won’t be able to stop.

2. Listen to This: The Irish Rovers. I don’t reserve Irish and Celtic folk music just for St. Patrick’s Day. These traditional Irish songs will have you on your feet and clinking mugs in no time.

3. Sip This: The “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” Cocktail. I said it last year and I’ll say it again: no green beer. It just doesn’t look right. But green cocktails? Now that’s something I’ll always nod to.

4. Decorate With This: Cute Dessert Toppers. Everything looks better with a little embellishment, even double-chocolate cupcakes (I know, right?). Download these (free!) printable toppers and add that extra touch to your dessert setup.

5. Eat This: Naked Rainbow Cake. I’m not sure what to say other than: make and devour this NOW. I mean, there are six (SIX!) layers of vanilla cake with six layers of vanilla buttercream frosting in rainbow hues. Glorious.

6. Make This: Lucky Party Banner. In reality, your party guests care about two things: booze and bites. If you want to add some festive flair to your digs, this banner is perfect. Download our (free!) printable banner template, cut out, add some twine and you’re all set.

Wallpaper has made a huge comeback recently. With new trends and styles, the look has far surpassed the country kitchens of yesteryear and is now one of the most sought after design elements on the market. My dilemma is this: I love wallpaper, but I’m a renter. Also, I change my mind constantly, so I tend to stick with flexible and inexpensive decor that I can move around or replace on the reg. So wallpaper is not an option for me, right? Wrong.

I’m sure you already know that temporary wallpaper is a thing, but lately it has become a very popular thing. Because of this, companies are exploding onto the scene with peel-and-stick products that look and feel like the real, stylish stuff you pin and pine over. But if installing temporary wallpaper still seems daunting, some pretty creative folks at HGTV.com have come up with other gorgeous and easy faux-paper methods to try as well. Check out 5 ways to bring the most beautiful and unique wallpaper trends home, sans glue…and commitment!

Peony Perfection
