DIY Mothers Day Gifts (Inexpensive Candy Flowers Vase)

Just because the kids are teens or tweens does not mean they can’t still make DIY Mothers Day Gifts for you.  I saw a similar product at a big box store that costs $20.   For about half that cost your kids can make one for you and even their grandmothers if they feel so inclined. 

These Inexpensive Candy Flowers Vases take very little time or skill. As long as they can use a glue gun safely this is the perfect DIY  Mothers Day Gifts for Teens and Tweens.  These make great Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas too.  You can add gift cards on sticks instead of some of the candy.
