Mother's Day Gift: Monogrammed Napkins | Martha Stewart
Let's face it, breakfast in bed on Mother's Day is not all it's cracked up to be (all those pesky crumbs!). Wouldn't you rather spend a leisurely Sunday morning in the kitchen with some little helpers?
A Southern-Inspired Mother's Day Brunch | Martha Stewart
"My mom taught me to do things for myself -- never to just throw away and buy new when something breaks, tears, rips, stains, or looks raggedy. She is never wasteful and always resourceful! She knows how to brighten, darn, mend, stretch, and shrink fabrics -- how to refinish surfaces, give things a fresh coat of paint, or find a clever solution to make something new again. I always hear her voice in the back of my head when I'm about to throw something out or buy something new, and I still call her with questions all the time. My mom is the best!" Being resourceful and making things better seems to just run in the family! Erin's own adeptness at making things shiny and new again is evident in the crafts she makes on her video series, "DIY Style." Here are some examples of Erin's craftiness. Check it out and be inspired to give something around your house a cheery face-lift.
Three Kinds of Beaded Earrings If earrings are Mom's accessory of choice, here are three kinds to make: Dangling Trios Attach jump rings (small metal rings) to a corded button and an antique glass bead to create the earring's dangling pieces. For the third element, cut a piece of thread, and run one end through a seed bead, then push the two thread ends up though a bugle bead. Thread another seed bead over both ends, and tie ends to a jump ring. Slide all three jump rings onto a ball-end earring wire. Punch ball closed with fingers or round-nose pliers. Knot gold embroidery floss around wire. Square Studs For each, cut a tiny square of linen to fit 4 side-by-side bugle beads. Glue (we used Magna-Tac) the beads in a row, and then glue the linen to a flat-top earring post. Tiny Tassels Cut a length of gold embroidery floss, and thread it through a needle. Push the needle up through a bead, and then down back through it again to create a loop at the top. Place the loop over the hook of a ball-end earring wire, and adjust floss to tighten. Tie floss ends into a double knot underneath the bead, and trim and fray the remaining floss for a tassel.
