Great Handmade Mothers Day Gift Ideas
Need a handmade Mothers Day Gift idea?
Then look no further, here you will find some great ideas for handmade Mothers Day gifts that every mum would love to receive. These are suited more to adults and older children to make, but if you need Mothers Day Craft ideas for the little ones you can check out my Mothers Day Crafts for Kids article too, it has lots of great craft ideas for younger children and even toddlers.
This article will hopefully give you some great inspiration for handmade gift ideas for mum, not just for Mothers Day, but for any other occasion all year round. Below you will find, DIY Tote ideas, handmade soap, some great wall art and even a fun personalise bookmark idea, hopefully there will be something to suit every mum.
This colourful personalised silhouette idea came from Happy Home Fairy. This could be done with all the children at any age (or even the whole family) and would make a great special individual gift that would be kept for years to come. Think how fun it would be to do every few years to see how everyone had changed. It isn't very difficult to achieve either, just a good profile photos, nice paper and a craft knife or scissors, plus steady hands!
Pretty Paper for your silhouettes
Handprint Canvas Gift
I think these would be so great on the wall of a family room. Make them with any coloured or patterned paper or fabric then just glue well on to canvas or strong card, you could make them to match or fit in with any home décor. This craft was found on Mod Podge Rocks website and I think it is so simple but super effective. This is another one that you could do with the whole family or multiple times over their lives to see how they have grown. It would make a great keepsake that both parents would cherish.
Flower Handprint Tote Bag
These handprint flower tote bags are a craft that even the little ones could join in on. I found it on Nifty Mom but it really is self explanatory. Canvas tote bag, paint, hands and creativity! You could personalise it further with mums name or the family name on the bottom too. Mum will be proud to carry this around with her shopping in.
Mothers Day Handmade Soap
Every mum likes to smell good, so having special handmade soap would be a great gift for Mothers Day or her Birthday really. You can find all the things you need and instructions on how to make these soaps on Kaboose. These would be great packaged in a nice little bag or box, or part of a larger bath time hamper with other handmade items, or her favourite bath products.
Fun Kids Photograph Bookmarks
Most mums love to read so these fun kids bookmarks will be a great way to make her smile every time she opens her book. This craft idea came from Come Together Kids, a blog with lots of other fun family friendly craft ideas. This is a great mothers day craft idea for school classes or after school clubs too. They can easily be made at home or school/club as you just need a camera, computer and printer, then some card and laminating materials or sticky back plastic, all of which can be picked up at a craft or office supply store. Kids can do whatever fun pose they want for this and mum will love it!
Burst of Butterflies Home Art
This great piece of handmade art can be found on a blog called Jaderbomb. It looks so beautiful and as if it should be difficult to recreate but it really isn't you just need card, a butterfly punch, backing material, glue and some time! She gives great instructions on how to create this step by step and I think the end result is beautiful. This could be done in just one colour in different shades or multicoloured like the picture, plus you could do it in other shapes instead of the burst on this one (maybe in a heart formation?)
Clothes Peg Magnets
Ok this isn't really a Mothers Day specific craft but Mum always needs to leave notes on the fridge now she can do it in style! She will love a set of these hand decorated fridge magnet pegs and you can find out how to make them on Home Made Gifts Made Easy. They are super easy and cheap to make, and can be done with a number of different materials in any pattern or colour you can find, so you can personalise them to your mums tastes.
