Connect with H&H

This Sunday, May 13th, why not give mom something original? Try your hand at a fun DIY project to customize her gift. I came across this cheery painted terracotta pot on Canadian blog Dans le Townhouse (along with several other easy DIY ideas for Mother's Day), which blogger Tanya re-posted from Dellie.

Pick up a few inexpensive terracotta pots from your local hardware store or greenhouse (they're everywhere!), choose two of your mom's favourite colours, then paint a few of them out in acrylic paint. A set of three filled with her favourite herbs would make such a thoughtful gift — the gift that keeps on growing!

For complete instructions, see the Dellie post.
