Here’s a sweet Mother’s Day present you and the kids can make for the grammies: Pick up round wooden boxes from a craft store. Paint the top and let dry. Paint nautical-knot buttons or drawer pulls and let dry. Attach buttons with glue; to attach a drawer pull, drill a small hole through the top of the box and secure with the nut. So easy you can make a set!
Tip: Want to DIY the knots? Google “monkey fist knot” to learn how, and simply glue one in place on top of the box.
