DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas made with a vintage flair

Today, I haven three Mother’s Day crafts, all designed by Rebekah Meier, and all made with Rebekah’s distinctive vintage style. The trio includes a Treasure Box & Pin Cushion, made with a paper mache box and fabric; bright, needlefelted Flower Pins; and a Photo Memory Cube, personalized with photos and special sentiments. These are all projects you can make in an afternoon, and the materials are all easy to find. The photos link to the tutorials on

How to make a vintage pin cushion and keepsake box for Mother's Day.

This keepsake box & pin cushion is both pretty and useful.

Use your favorite fabrics to make easy, needle felted flower pins.

Rebekah’s Felted Flower Pins would make nice gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week, too.

Have a crafternoon with your kids and have them make a photo cube for grandma.

Here’s a close-up of the saying Rebekah added to the top.

Are you making a gift for mom? Or do you have other crafty plans for the weekend? I have plans and projects to make, but I confess, I have to tackle the boxes first. Remember the boxes? They’re back, and worse than ever. I have to get them cleaned up before I can spread out and make a few things. I’ll let you know how it goes!Crafts 'n Coffee will take part in the blog hop celebrating Laura Kelly's new fabric line.

Happy crafting!

P.S. I am so excited to be part of the blog hop celebrating the new fabric line from Laura Kelly, available from Jo-Ann Stores. One of the projects on my to-do list this weekend is to start working on a patriotic craft for the June blog hop, which starts on June 10. I can’t wait to get started!
