With blooming flowers and sunny skies settling in for the spring, Mother’s Day is the perfect occasion to take on new DIY projects. To provide some inspiration, here are ten fun DIY ideas that are perfectly suited for Mother’s Day!
Homemade Beauty Products
Every mom likes to treat herself, so an all-organic, homemade scrub is a thoughtful way to make your mom feel great on her special day. Start by finding a recipe for a sugar or salt scrub. Then, you’ll want to end up gifting it in a pretty package. We love these customizable jars from Paper Mart.
Create Your Own Arrangement
To make a bouquet truly unique, try picking out the individual blooms yourself from a flower market. There are plenty of great tutorials online that will teach you what it takes to make the perfect bouquet.
Find a pretty jar, or otherwise creative container—even a tea cup—and use it to hold a handmade candle that she’ll be able to enjoy for hours on end. Add colored wax, scents, or essential oils to create a personalized votive.
Custom Tote Bags
Moms may very well be the busiest people in the world, so help keep her organized with a pretty, customized tote bag. Tie dye a canvas bag or screen print the bag with her favorite photo so she can work, shop, and run errands in style.
Gorgeous paper products are all the rage, so keep her feeling fashionable with easy-to-make, elegant marbled stationery. Here is a tutorial by A Cup of Jo that we love.
Upgrade Her Plants
Personalized terracotta flower pots don’t require too much: all you need is a little chalk paint and some tape. This will allow Mom to write messages or the names of all of her plants directly on their pots.
If mom is a foodie, find a unique and delicious granola recipe to craft, making sure it includes her favorite ingredients. As for what to put the granola in, a mason jar or weck jar make great packaging. She can also reuse them when she’s done.
If you’ve got a bit of sewing skill, sachets are a cinch to make. Find a fabric that represents your mom and make little pouches filled with dried lavender, chamomile, or any other scent she would love!
Make something pretty that she can use during her next dinner or brunch with these fun DIY tassel napkins. Use her favorite colors and patterns.
Celebrate Spring with a Wreath
Use the festive flora of the season to craft a springtime wreath to adorn her front door.
The beauty of a DIY Mother’s Day gift is that there are endless ways to customize each project, adding personal touches just for her. No matter what you decide to create, you can’t go wrong choosing something that represents your mom’s unique spirit and taste.
