Mother’s Day is just around the corner and now is the perfect time to be thinking of special Mother’s Day gifts. I don’t think moms ever outgrow how much they love handmade Mother’s Day gifts from their children. This homemade gift is quite a jump from the little plant in a paper cup you made her when you were 5! She will absolutely love this handmade pendant. A twist on the popular Mother’s ring, this beautiful silver nest holds a bead in the color of each of her children’s birthstones and could not be more precious.
When it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, this one is easy and inexpensive but rich in style and made with love! It makes a great affordable gift for mom!
Mother’s Day Gifts – DIY Nest & Birthstone Mother’s Pendant
Supplies (affiliate links included)
Cut a length of wire approximately 15″-18″ long.
Begin forming the pendant by slipping the first birthstone bead onto the wire. Secure the bead into place by twisting the wire and tucking it back into the bead.
Add any remaining beads and secure each by wrapping and twisting the wire around the bead. This pendant can be created with only one bead as well and is just as beautiful!
After the beads are in place, you’ll begin wrapping the wire around and behind the beads to form the “nest”. Wrap the wire carefully, making sure not to crimp it, and thread it in and out of the nest as you go so that the wire intertwines.
Continue wrapping the wire until you’ve created a beautiful little nest to safely keep all of mama’s little eggs.
For the final step, you’ll need to create a small loop of wire for the pendant to slip onto a necklace. Add the loop to the top and twist to secure it before feeding it back into the nest. Use the wire cutters to secure the end of the wire into the back of the nest, making sure there is not a sharp end protruding.
And that’s it! You have an elegant, thoughtful, homemade Mother’s Day gift to give that special mom in your life! Head over to MyKidsGuide if you’re looking for cute Mother’s Day crafts for kids!
