DIY Mother's Day Gift: Vases with Free Printable

Mother’s Day is coming, and it’s one of my favorite holidays to get my DIY on, mostly because I love all of the pretty things I think of when I think about mothers.

So, today I’m going to show you a piece-of-cake little Mother’s Day gift idea that you can make in a couple of minutes that is perfect for the mothers in your life.

Add some fresh flowers and a little printable gift tag and your mom’s day will be made. You can also use it for pretty table decor for other holidays! Here’s what you need:

Mason jar craft paint and a foam brush

Mother’s Day Vase


  • Mason jar
  • Paint (I used Chalky Finish Paint from Michaels because I love the matte finish)
  • Flowers
  • Printable (link below)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush


Painting mason jars with chalk paint and a foam brush

1. Paint your jar! I found I needed 2 – 3 coats to give the jars total coverage. Let dry completely.

2. Rough up dry jars with sandpaper.

4. Download print by clicking here. I printed mine out as wallet sized (you can generally adjust this in your printer settings) but they should print well up to a 4 x 6 if you would like to use them for a bigger vase or a different project.

Please note this tag is for personal use only – but other than that, print away and have fun! *Click the link, then click the Download box at the top right to download. Give it a minute to process and open. You do not need to sign up for an account.
