1. Make Your Own Bunting
Store-bought decorations are usually single-use plastic. This year, why not create some simple fabric bunting for Mother’s Day? The best part: you can stash it away and re-use that same length of bunting year after year, and not just on Mother’s Day!
2. Create an Eco-Friendly Tablescape
If you’re cooking up a nice Mother’s Day brunch this year, you can really make it shine with a beautiful tablescape. Depending on how much time you have, you can sew up a table runner from fabric scraps just for the occasion or combine natural materials to make a tablescape that mom will love. Who needs pesticide-laden bouquets when you can create a repurposed centerpiece instead?
3. Sew Fabric Scrap Flowers
If your mom is expecting flowers on Mother’s Day, you can get more eco-friendly than a cut bouquet. Instead, check out this tutorial for making a bouquet of fabric scrap flowers. They’re sweet, simple, and they’ll never wilt or die.
