In just a few minutes you can turn an empty container into a beautiful homemade gift for mum that is filled with her favourite sweets!
I am not really a yogurt lover but I have been eating a bit of the Jalna pot set yoghurt lately. It’s mainly to boost my calcium intake a bit because I don’t eat a lot of other dairy. I’ve never liked yoghurt in the past but now I am starting to get a bit of a taste for the creamy vanilla flavour!
Apart from boosting my calcium intake my yoghurt consumption has also provided me with some really cute plastic tubs that are just begging to be repurposed! The containers are perfect because the labels come off very easily without leaving any residue.
I have been looking at the containers lately and thinking that they would be great to put some sweet treats in. So with Mother’s Day coming up I thought that I would make a homemade gift for my mum and put some of her favourite lollies (and mine) in one of the jars.
I was really pleased with the result and it couldn’t have been simpler!
Making a Sweet Homemade Gift for Mother’s Day
- Wash out your yoghurt container and peel off the labels (to remove the printed expiry date just use a little rubbing alcohol).
- Select your washi tape and decorate the container as you like.
- Add your lollies/sweets of choice. I used éclair lollies but you can use whatever your mum likes!
- You can also add a gift tag if you wish. I made a rustic gift tag from some cardboard and tied it on with twine.
I used gold tones because my container had a cream coloured lid but you could use whatever colours that you like!
This would be a perfect DIY homemade gift project for the kids, just set them up with the container and some washi tape and let them go wild! You just might need to keep an eye on the lollies 😉
Finally don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect, mums appreciate the effort that goes into making a homemade gift!
