DIY Mother’s Day Gift

As Mother’s Day approaches this weekend, one True Botanica coworker shared her DIY gift idea. Since her mother is an avid tea drinker, she decided to decorate a mug and pair it with her mother’s favorite Green Tea. Check out the pictures below for a DIY project or, take mom along and make a fun day of it!
