Still stuck on what to get your mom for Mother’s Day? Not to worry, I’ve got a whole swag of beautiful gifts that you can handmake in the space of a day (most in under an hour) that’ll leave your mom feeling super spoiled. In fact these projects are so lovely she probably won’t even realise they’re DIY! Get ready for some fun Saturday crafting in preparation for Sunday’s festivities…
These soaps are perfect for pampering your mom on her special day and they’re so stunning she probably won’t believe you made them yourself! If you’re going to make these for Sunday just make sure you start early as the pops take around 6 hours to set.
Instead of flowers or chocolates, why not make your mom a necklace she can use every day! Find out her favourite metals and stones and craft up one for her that she’ll wear all the time.
Mother’s day is all about pampering your mom and nothing says pampering like scented bath salts! The combination of rosemary and grapefruit will be sure to have her feeling relaxed in no time.
If your mom often has a lot of jewellery, coins or keys floating around the house, this lovely trinket dish is the perfect gift to house her knick knacks. Maybe add a few of her favourite sweet treats inside when you wrap it up as an added surprise!
This seriously is a dream project; all you need is half an hour of your time to make your mom these gorgeous trivets that she can use in her kitchen or to entertain at parties. Make ones in different sizes so she has a full set!
Is your mom a fan of bold patterns and colours? Then she’ll probably love these coasters! They’re easy to paint up in the space of an hour and they’ll add an instant burst of colour to her kitchen.
It’s a well known fact that most moms love flowers, but why not go one better and make her an elegant clay vase to go with the bunch of blooms you buy her? The vase will be a lovely keepsake that she can use over and over again!
If you know your mom’s favourite colours and shapes, you could easily make her some tissue paper wall art to brighten up her walls. Not only will it be a gift unlike any other she’s received, she’ll truly have art that’s one of a kind because it’s made by you!
If your mom’s the gardening type, then you can’t go past this herb starter kit. And don’t worry if she’s already got herbs; just customise the starter with seeds and markers for plants she hasn’t yet got in her garden. Every time she looks at her newly budding plants, she’ll remember how much you love her!
If your mom’s a bit of a bookworm, chances are she’ll have a lot of good reads lying around the house that need displaying so why not make her some pretty and functional bookends to help house her paperbacks? With some wood scraps and glue, you’ll have these made up and ready for gifting in under an hour!
