- Square wooden board
- A hammer
- Embroidery Floss
Provide a personalized piece of décor for your mom by gifting her string art in the shape of her home state, a heart, or even her favorite animal. To do so, start by lightly tracing your chosen outline in pencil on the square wooden board. Then hammer your nails along the outline about a ½-inch distance apart. Lastly, wind the string around the nails until you fill in the design with string.
A custom photo book
- Electronically-stored photos
A custom photo book will likely remain on your mom’s coffee table for years to come. Sites such as Shutterfly or Snapfish have a bunch of pre-made templates that you can choose from. All you need to do is download your photos and insert them into the template. You can fill the book with photos from a fun family vacation, baby pictures, or photos of you and your mom.
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- ½ cup of oil (usually olive or coconut)
- Essential oils
- Wide-mouthed mason jar
DIY sugar scrubs are a classic and easy Mother’s Day gift. Just mix 1 cup of granulated sugar, a ½ cup of the oil of your choice, and essential oils in your mom’s favorite scents. Store the scrub in a small wide-mouthed mason jar and you have an adorable gift your mom is sure to love.
- Seed paper
- A pen
Never underestimate the value of a nice, thought-out card. Let your mother know how much she means to you by thanking her for all she has done for you in a hand-written card. By writing the card on seed paper, your mom can turn your heartwarming words into a beautiful flower that will remind her of your love as it blooms. You can get even more creative by cutting the card into a fun shape such as a heart or butterfly.
The mother’s in your life are sure to enjoy receiving these thoughtful DIY Mother’s Day gifts on May 12.
