It’s not too late to show mom you care this Mother’s Day. Rather than buying her something she already has, make her something she never even knew she wanted. Each of these DIYs are quirky and fun gifts any mom will cherish. A Girl and a Glue Gun created an easy to make sunglasses pouch that will make any mom smile. U-Create Crafts will make mom chuckle with their Pin-it pin cushion. The irony is so clever we wish we had though of it first. If neither of those are for you, maybe you’ll love Alpha Mom’s Sandpaper printed t-shirt tutorial. We can’t wait to try all three.

This Year, This Season it’s all about the eccentricity of accessories, the weirder, the bigger, the funkier, The Better. What better gift to give on mother’s day than a gorgeous fashion forward knotted rope necklace. It’s simple and easy and looks anything but plain. Accessory designers like Lizzie Fortunato Jewels and also have there own forms of knotted rope necklaces. Check out this simple DIY.
Step One: Important* Tape all the ends of the rayon cord, so they do not unravel.
Step Two: To make you starting point, take both rayon twist cords and loop them together. Then make a knot within the two cords.
Step two: From here on it’s really all about your imagination and the look you’re going for. You can leave the one knot the way it is or make knots on both sides of the middle knot, and loop different parts together, until you’re satisfied.
Step Three: Make one knot on each side about 1” away from the larger bigger knot.
Step Four: Now make one knot on one side about 2” or 3” inches away from the smaller knot. Then take your buttons and hot glue or sew each button on top of the knot.
Step Five: Now cut your chain in three even pieces and wrap two pieces on different ends of the necklace. (I sewed it into place, but you can also hot glue the chain)
Step Six: I made the necklace large enough to fit over my head, so I just hot glued both ends together and wrapped left over chain for finishing look. But you can add end caps to the end of the rayon rope and attach a lobster clasp.
