Motherâ€™s Day is coming fast and if youâ€™re still looking for some last minute gift ideas or crafts I found a few quick candle projects. Most moms love candles so you canâ€™t really go wrong although my mother might not know where the heck to put more.
You could put a row of them out with citrus candles inside and fight off the bugs at the same time. At CraftBits there are easy instructions for tin can lanterns. If you donâ€™t have a pin hammer handy, a regular hammer will do.
DLTK has an adorable candle holder project made out of a baby food jar. Kids could decoupage just about anything from paper or tissue onto it and have fun personalizing the candle holder by finding pics of her favorite things.
Better Homes and Gardens have several Motherâ€™s Day craft ideas for creating personalized gifts for moms. I love the mugs with handprints and the decorated flowerpot that could double as candle holders.
If your mom is into oil or tart burners, Jane Lake gives us detailed instructions on how to make your own scented candle melts or tarts at All Free Crafts. Itâ€™s a great way to use up old wax and you can include a couple of your momâ€™s favorite scents.
