Lovely DIY Mother's Day Gifts

What are you getting for mom this Mother's Day?! When it comes time to choose a gift, you could always go the store bought route or you could make the day a little extra special with a homemade gift instead!

To help you decide what to make for mom, I've put together some of my favorite projects that are simple enough to make at home but unique enough to create a one-of-a-kind gift. Creating a DIY Mother's Day gift is the perfect way to show your mom, mother-in-law, sister or any mom figure in your life, that they are truly a queen for a day.

  • For the Fashionista Mom

    If your mom is someone who is always looking for the next latest and greatest fashion accessory, then why not make her a Mother's Day gift that is one of a kind?! This DIY stamped scarf project created by A Beautiful Mess, is a great option for making a wearable gift. Some gold craft paint and different shaped stamps are all you need!

  • For the Coffee Connoisseur

    If you're looking for the perfect DIY gift to add a little extra love to mom's kitchen space, then try this Coffee Set Makeover Project. This simple and chic hand-painted project lets you transform an everyday object into one with much more meaning that mom will be able to enjoy all year round.

  • For the Organized Mom

    For a simple DIY that will still make a bold statement, try this DIY Polka Dot Jewelry Dish or this DIY Gold Glam Tray for mom. Both of these jewelry trays are sure to impress and cost very little to make. Add a new piece of jewelry or mom's favorite magazines and tie together with a colorful ribbon for a beautiful gift.

  • For the Mom Who Deserves Some R&R

    We've all seen bath bombs available for purchase at many local beauty supply stores, but until now I'd never thought about making your own! These DIY Bath Bombs look gorgeous and only require some epsom salts and a few common cooking items. The whole project only costs $3 and makes about 14 bath bombs. Plenty left over for mom to relax for weekends to come.

  • For the Home Decor Lovin' Mom

    Who wouldn't appreciate a custom piece of artwork as a Mother's Day gift!? This Subway Art Project is all kinds of adorable and is a gift that everyone in the family can help to make. I LOVE the idea of using 'mom' from every language as the text, but you can customize with family names, birth dates or anything that would mean the most to mom.

  • For the Mom on the Go

    Moms, especially new moms, are always on the move. If they are always on the look out for the perfect bag, they are sure to appreciate this hand-painted clutch. This project is the perfect way to turn an ordinary item into something much more personal. Grab some paint in your mom's favorite colors and get styling!
