DIY Gift Basket for Mom

DIY Gift Basket for Mom

You've still got time to make a DIY gift basket for mom. I put this one together on my latest shopping trip to Marshalls. For just about $40, I was able to create a thoughtful, sweet gift for my mom.

How to Make Your DIY Gift Basket for Mom

I started in the housewares department. I'm sure you all know Marshalls is so much more than just clothing and shoes, they have amazing deals on home goods. I always get inspired...and start with a cart to load up my goodies.

My mom is re-doing her powder room so I knew I wanted to get her some goodies to make the room look finished. I began with the sweet Family Rules artwork. I've seen similar art before, but not for under $10!

Then I found a basket to work with, I always like little baskets in bathroom to hold either paper towels or cloth towels. This dark brown one will have many uses and is a perfect item to gather all my gifts.
