This weekend is my mom’s 85th birthday so I am putting together a gift basket to take her when I see her this weekend. She has a little trouble walking so she uses a cane now. While I was thinking about what to give her, it reminded me of a DIY idea I wanted to share with you. It was a gift that my daughter made for my mother a while back.
My mom did not like the idea of using a cane at first… until we blinged it up.
We took a cane that we purchased from a drug store and added leopard-print duct tape and rhinestones. We used Duck Tape for our project and first, covered the cane while wrapping in tape. Then we put the rhinestones on, using a glue gun.
We also added some little feathers to further dress up the cane.
My mom loved it. It made it a little easier to embrace now that it was fashionable and made with love from her granddaughter. It was also a one of a kind design and she always makes sure not to leave it behind.
These make nice gifts for elderly family members, if you know someone who uses a cane. Do you know someone who would like one of these?
