I don’t know how it’s creeping up so fast, but Mother’s Day is in less than two weeks. 11 days from today to be exact. So, I’ll be rolling out a couple more DIY project ideas for Mom over the next week and a half, starting with this one for an embellished keepsake container, which moms ALWAYS have. Honestly, I made a couple of these for myself too though because I like ‘em so much.
I picked up a few of these shallow containers at a local craft store for $2.50 each and with a $2 bottle of enamel model car paint I made these simple containers a little more special. For under $5 each!
I’m picturing them being used to store jewelry, makeup, and other odds and ends….And maybe even a secret candy stash? That’s how I would roll with them, anyway.
Which is why I partnered with DOVE® Dark Chocolate for this DIY. Have you tried their chocolate? It is seriously delicious (and I’m not even a huge dark chocolate person). Jeff and I ate a whole bag in a couple of days. Silky Smooth Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel and Silky Smooth Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl are my two favorites.
Here’s how to make your own keepsake containers for Mother’s Day…
Materials: Ceramic Containers, Enamel Model Car Paint, Paint Brush, Painter’s Tape
How-To: You can either freehand a design or pattern directly onto the ceramic containers OR tape off a shape and paint inside the lines. Either way, this project couldn’t be any easier. And it’s so affordable too.
Fill the container with candies and/or jewelry and give this to mom with a card and a bouquet of flowers (or balloons).
After Mother’s Day is over, I could totally see myself reusing this idea for last minute birthday, graduation, and housewarming gifts.

I just got back from my trip to Ventura and LA last night and have a lot to catch up on today. But I wanted to pop in this morning to share these metallic planters that I made for Curbly recently.
All in all, each one of these took me about 5 minutes to make, and I already had all of the supplies, so it cost me nothing. Don’t you love it when that happens?
Want to make your own? Check out the full tutorial here on Curbly.
P.S. I had a great time at Craftcation and will be sharing some photos from my trip soon. What did you do this weekend?
This morning, I have butterflies in my stomach, from all the excitement…because today is the first full day of Meet/Make/Do activities. Chelsea, Kelly, and I got everything set up yesterday morning/ afternoon, and everyone started arriving mid-day. Then we headed out to dinner (which was delicious). I can’t wait to share the details from this event. For now though, you can follow along here. And on my Instagram. #meetmakebing
I was so looking forward to doing it all over again today, I woke up super early, like it was Christmas morning or something.
The vibe here is light, airy, and all kinds of calming/relaxing. So, I thought it would be appropriate to round up some of my favorite things right now that fit that description: light, airy, and completely calming…
