7 Mother’s Day DIY Gifts
1. Handprint flower bouquet
This is a classic Mother’s Day gift that never gets old. All you need is some paint, paper, and your child’s hands. Have them dip their hands in paint and press them onto the paper to make handprints. Then, use a marker to draw stems and leaves and add some details to make them look like flowers. It’s a cute and simple way to show your love.
2. picture Frame
Make a homemade picture frame using popsicle sticks or cardboard. You can decorate it with stickers, paint, or markers. Print out a favorite family photo and place it in the frame. This is a gift that will last forever and can be displayed in the home.
3. Handmade Card
A homemade card is a thoughtful and personal gift. Encourage your child to write a heartfelt message and decorate the card with drawings, stickers, or glitter. You can also make a pop-up card or a card with a 3D effect to make it extra special.
4. Mason Jar Vase
Transform a plain mason jar into a beautiful vase. You can use paint, tissue paper, mod podge, or even washi tape to decorate the jar. Fill it with your mother’s favorite flowers or make paper flowers to put inside. We also have this Free Mini Bouquet I Love You Download if you want to keep things extra simple but still special.
5. Homemade Bath Bombs
For a relaxing gift, make homemade bath bombs. Mix together baking soda, citric acid, essential oils, and food coloring. Press the mixture into molds and let them dry overnight. Package them in a pretty container with a note that says “take a relaxing bath on me.” Or you can go the Body Scrub Route and follow our recipe here.
6. Recipe Book
Create a recipe book filled with your mom’s favorite recipes. Have your child write out the recipes or print them out and decorate the pages with drawings or photos. Bind the pages together with string or ribbon.
