Mother’s Day DIY Fingerprint Jar Vase

Mother’s Day is a wonderful time of year to celebrate the mothers in your life. But what I love in particular is coming up with fun crafts that the kids can do by themselves for their Grandma. A few years back, we had made a beautiful vase for her, all decorated with kids’ fingerprints . We also made paper flowers, all of which had sweet sentiments written on them to put inside. The idea was for my Mom-in-Law to use the jar as a vase for her bouquets all year round. But instead, she has kept it as is and proudly displays it on her shelf to this day. Whatever a special mom in your life decides to use it for, I think our Mother’s Day DIY Fingerprint Jar Vase will be a very special gift indeed!
