Want to buy instead of make? Check out our gift guides for Moms, First Mother’s Day, Godmothers, and Wives.

Chunky Knit Blanket
Blankets make great Mother’s Day gifts because they’re like hugs! Blankets keep our loved ones warm. But even better than a blanket is a blanket made by her favorite person. Use chunky knit yarn for a super intimate feel.
Candles are surprisingly easy to make at home. Almost too easy! Yesmissy knows all you need are wax flakes, wicks, and essential oils. Then pour your personalized wax into a thrifted vintage teacup. Ugh, too cute.
If mama loves puzzles, well…she’s really gonna love this Mother’s Day. You will need a Cricut Maker for this DIY, but the end result is a double-sided puzzle. Double the effort, double the fun. You can even put your face on one side!
Fluffy Pom Pom Bin
Is it feng-shui or is it fluff? We don’t know, but it’s cute! Every mom could use another “catch all” container for all those extras, like blankets or laundry. Attach pom poms for a personalized touch from this sugarandcloth tutorial.
Cooling Eye Masks
Cucumber, mint, aloe vera…can you think of a more cool combo? Repay Mom for all those late nights you kept her up. Make her the best homemade eye masks that money can’t buy from livesimply. And then tell her how beautiful she looks, of course.

The thinner the chocolate, the better for you…right? Ok, so that might not be true, but everyone loves chocolate bark. Make your own using the nostalgic goodies from childhood. Mom might be crying from the sugar rush, or there might be something in her eye.
Monogram Clay Keychains
One good thing about minimalism is that you can make the simplest things look really expensive. If Mom is into the matchy-matchy, craft her a monogrammed clay keychain. It’s like friendship bracelets, but better! The natural colors and rounded corners scream luxury.
Dip-Dyed Ombre Bag
When you were a kid, didn’t you notice that Mom’s hands were always full? Help her out with a one-of-a-kind dip-dyed ombre bag from hisugarplum. The different color concentrations craft a faraway landscape. This bag says “I got you, Mama.”

AirPods Keychain Case
If Mom has all the latest Apple gadgets, you can be her biggest supporter! But instead of getting her the same old AirPods case that all her friends have, make her a luxury leather case. It’s easy, but you don’t need to let her know.
Yoga Mat Strap
After all those years, mama had to find her inner peace. For the yogi mommy, bless her with a earthy homemade yoga mat strap. All you need is macrame rope and wooden rings.

If you’ve exhausted all the jewelry options for Mother’s Day, the next logical step is to get Mom a jewelry tower! By connecting old furniture and vintage bowls, you create a space for Mom to show her jewelry off.
Pebble Love Bugs
For an activity moms can enjoy with their younger kids, catch some pebble love bugs! You’ll need to collect some rocks, which you can decorate together to create a family of critters. Set them in plants and on bookshelves for surprise smiles.
A Pumpkin and a Princess details how we can reuse a coffee tin or berry basket to create a succulent planter. The found items give the succulent a rustic appearance. Stick in a cute pun that reads something like, “Thanks for helping me grow!”

Clay Petal Planter
What’s a clay petal planter, you ask? Well, it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. Using a planter and knife, smoosh down each clay piece until it resembles a petal. The good thing about this DIY is that imperfections look incredible! It’s kitschy and cool.
If Mom has pots galore from Mother’s Day past, this time make her some plant markers! These plant markers are simple, but that’s the appeal. The soft pastel clay stands out against the soil so Mom won’t lose her carrots again.
Arch Candle Holder
For the mom that’s interested in luxury looks for less, we’ve got the perfect gift. This arch candle holder looks expensive, but you can make it yourself with a quick trip to the craft store!
Sachets With Photos
Mothers comfort us, so it makes sense that lavender sachets make a fitting gift. But these aren’t just any lavender pouches! These sachets can be personalized with the photos of your choice.
Mini Marble Cake Stands
This one’s a cute idea for the mama that loves to bake! Oh, just think about all the cookies we’ll have. These mini marble cake stands are magazine worthy, but you can throw them together in less time than it takes to bake a cake.
Leather Bag Charm
You will need leather cutting tools for this craft. A keychain or bag charm is a sweet gift because it says, “I’m always with you!” Use bright colors that will stand out against a basic travel bag.
For some jewelry that’s a little more boho chic, update a plain chain link bracelet by wrapping it with pretty yarn. It’s an inventive way to personalize jewelry, plus the yarn will cover any flaws in the cheap metal!
Fabric Lined Glass Plates
You feel that summer breeze? It’s these DIY fabric lined glass plates floating through. Use Mod Podge to attach different patterned fabrics to the bottom of glass plates. Mix and match for that extra Martha Stewart vibe.

Stamped Leather Keychain
Stamped leather keychains may hint at gun draws and saloons, but hey, they can be good messengers too. Tell your mom you love her, or remind her of a favorite inside joke. These look so professional, you’ll have to swear it’s personal.
Tiny Floral Pins
Again, minis for the win. Moms love flowers, and moms love minis…so what about tiny floral pins? Mom will feel dainty in her Mother’s Day best and her homemade brooch is sure to stand above the rest.
Flower Paper Rings
We know moms work hard, and they barely get the recognition. Give Mom the BIG gesture she deserves with a paper flower ring. This tutorial shows you exactly how to roll ’em up, so it really is Easy Peasy and Fun.
Kate Spade Inspired Bangles
For the fashion inspired, try your hand at accessories with painted bangles. Start with a wood bangle and add materials until it’s more than a bracelet, it’s a story! Or utilize bright paints for some brave costume jewelry.
If mama is happy, everybody else is happy. And mama is happy when everything is organized and in its special place. Have the kids wrap toilet paper rolls with colored yarn for tactile organization. Yarn-wrapped holders are perfect for makeup brushes.

Shrinky Dink Keychain
There’s just something about shrinky dinks that melts moms hearts. For this craft, it’s hard to tell whether it’s the tiny handprints or the unapologetic “MOM” label. Either way, it’s good incentive for her to not lose her keys.
For the mom that insists on being independent, she’ll appreciate a terrarium kit. The jar comes ready to assemble, so things can get right to growing. This blog offers adorable printable “recipe” cards for a cherry on top.
Flower Pot Painting

Black Glue Heart Art Project
Redtedart has another project for us that will entertain the kids for hours. They’ll be so proud to take home their black glue hearts back to their moms! The black glue and acrylic paints give the heart a stained glass appearance.
Pallet Picture Frame
If you’re feeling especially hands-on, make Mom a pallet picture frame! Decorate with your favorite photos of you together. This way, it’s easy to stay on Mom’s mind. You can easily customize to fit all the kids on one pallet.
For the young kiddos that need some guidance, you can download this free “MOM” template for them to sponge paint. With a few snips, a dish sponge suddenly becomes something to paint with! The “stamps” keep them on task, plus it looks pretty cool.
Loral Monogram Door Hanger
You could erect a statue to honor your mother. Or perhaps a floral monogram door hanger is more appropriate. Using a 12″ canvas letter as the base, you can create a floral letter that screams it loud and proud. Your mum’s name, I mean.
There’s cute, and then there’s birdhouse cute. This is a perfect crafting activity for the kids who are starting to get a hang of their fine motor skills. Use this free template to bring their birdhouse cards to life. Done!
