5 DIY Gifts for Mom

I’ve been thinking about Mother’s Day. Did you see this hilarious Ebay video that I found? We can’t forget our own mothers on their special day…and if we have kids, we can’t let them forget their grandmothers, either. With Mom’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to stop thinking and start crafting. Moms love handmade gifts from her grown-up kids just as much now as she did back in kindergarten when you pressed your hand in plaster of Paris for her. And she loves those handmade gifts even more if you can get the grandkids involved! So, check out these five ways to make a gift that kids can help with and any mom will love.



1. Sew It

Noodlehead has a fantastic tutorial for these sweet gathered clutches. Make a purse or two or three out of pretty fabric in Mom’s favorite colors, then tuck some gift cards inside for an extra nice surprise.


2. Stitch It

What grandma wouldn’t love to display these sweet little hand towels embroidered with her grandkids’ art? Buzzmills shows you that it’s not hard to make a gift any mom would love with a few simple steps.


3. Cut and Paste It

Thinking of giving Mom jewelry this year? Try your hand at making this darling brooch from Revolutionaries. Use sheet music from a song that has special meaning to your mom for a sentimental touch, and you’ve made a corsage she can enjoy wearing anytime.


4. Drill It

If your Mom adores antiques and vintage finds, she’ll love this. The Happy Housie shows how to retrofit a vintage Mason jar into a soap dispenser.


5. Print It

This handmade gift idea couldn’t be any easier to make, and Mom will love the special message it delivers. Download the free printable file from Sugar Fresh, put it inside a pretty frame, and voila–instant Mother’s Day present!

Good luck with your preparations for Mothers’ Day! I’d love to hear about any gifts you’ve already whipped up or ideas you have for your own mom this year.
