DIY Mother’s Day Bunting

As promised, I’ve got a fab printable Mother’s Day Bunting for you to DIY just in time for this Sunday’s events!

Print this “Best Mom Ever” DIY Mother’s Day Bunting, & follow along with me.

DIY Mother's Day Bunting

You’ll need:

First, cut along the dotted line around each individual flag. Crank some tunes or binge some Netflix, because this takes some time.

Next, select which ‘mom’ name you’d like to use. I’ve included the extra letters necessary to make the following names: Mom, Mommy, Mum, Momma, Mother, Mama or Ma.

Once you’ve chosen a ‘mom’, place your flags spaced as you like, and lay out your twine/ string over top to measure the length needed. Then cut your twine.

Now it’s time to secure your flags onto your string. Place a small piece of tape on the top of your flag. Then, fold the tape over the string and on onto the back of the flag securing the string in the tape. Continue on until all your flags are attached.

Voila, you’ve made a festive Mother’s Day Bunting! Now string it up over Mom’s bed, in the living room, over the brunch table, wherever you please.

How are you celebrating Mother’s Day?

Printable Mother’s Day Cards

Mother’s Day is this Sunday! So for you babes who are running a little behind on goodies for your Momma, I’ve got you covered.

Just print this Printable Mother’s Day Card, grab your trusty scissors, & follow along with me!

Printable Mother's Day Cards

Once you have your PDF printed, it takes a few simple steps to get your finished Mother’s Day cards.

First, cut along the horizontal dotted line to separate your two cards. I like to cut with an x-acto knife & a straight edge, but scissors work just as well.

Next, fold your cards along the solid line in the center. If you’re using a thicker paper weight like cardstock, you’ll want to score your card for a clean fold. A bone folder like this one is my go-to, but in a pinch, any small pointed edge will do the trick. Just flip your card over & score the inside. Then fold your card over & press down the seam.

You’re all done! Not only are you finished with this DIY in a snap, but you also get two cards out of it. Plus, they’re not Mother’s Day specific, so you can gift them to your babes on any occasion.

Check back in Friday for a DIY Mother’s Day Bunting Printable!
