Keep yourself in the loop style-wise with these easy beaded necklaces, inspired by the new book Make a Statement, by Martha Stewart Weddings associate style editor Katie Covington. Simply link together beaded loops, then finish with pretty cord or ribbon ties. A handmade piece can be a gift that Mom will treasure long after Mother’s Day (and that you might just be tempted to keep for yourself!).
Do nature one better and give Mom everlasting tulips, complete with messages from the heart. With a few folds of colored paper and a piece of wire, you have a beautiful Mother’s Day greeting. Craft a single flower or a whole arrangement of sweet sentiments.
