Still haven’t gotten Mom anything for Mother’s Day? Don’t fret! You still have plenty of time for a gift… handmade at that! You know nothing melts mom’s heart like something that you made with your own two hands. We’ve all come a long way from making handprint flowers on construction paper, so I’ve rounded up 7 trendy Mother’s Day gifts for cool moms.
An Updated Twist on the Macaroni Necklace
You know that your mom wore that macaroni necklace with pride. This year, make her a necklace that she’ll really want to wear time and time again. Aunt Peaches made these watercolor wooden bead necklaces that are just gorgeous. She warns that “results will come out better if you can embrace unpredictability with kid-like, wild abandonment”. Any DIY project with that disclaimer is sure to be a fun one! Rubyellen from Cakies blog made a necklace from clay that is easy enough for young-uns to tackle, but would also be a great “grown-up” DIY. The finished product is unique and dainty.
Mothers always appreciate a good bag. They need them to hold all of those random odds and ends that she happens to have at just the right moment when you’re in need, right? Delia Creates made this crochet + leather tote that is perfectly color blocked and anything but basic. Visit her blog for the tutorial. Kaelah from This Charming Life has the perfect Mother’s Day gift for the mom with a sense of humor. Make a DIY Self Care Kit to remind mom to #TREATYOSELF.
Adorn Her Walls
Mothers always appreciate a good framed photo, but this year why not make her something unique to add to her gallery wall? Lovely Indeed crafted simple wood plaques with clever little sayings. I love this idea for the ultra hip mom that uses the term “bae” on the regular. Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous shows you how to make a DIY Wood Pallet Sign that represents the locations of all her siblings.. a perfect gift for the mom that loves from afar.
Plant Seeds of Love
The Merrythought put together this beautiful DIY Herb Garden Starter Kit as a gift. Isn’t it lovely? Plus once the herbs start growing, mom will be able to use them in her cooking, so this really is the gift that keeps on giving!
