DIY gifts for Mother's Day

Mother's Day will look a little different this year because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Normally we would all get together to do a nice brunch or dinner for the moms, but social distancing will keep us apart for now. That doesn't mean that Mom has to be forgotten! Here are a few simple gifts that could be crafted and mailed to your favorite mom, or dropped off with a no-contact delivery. Save those hugs and kisses for later.

Paper clay is a no-bake clay, so all you need is some time to air dry your project. For texture, stamp the clay before it dries. Paint the dish mom's favorite color and seal it with a coat of matte or glossy glue.

Is your mom a reader? A chef? An athlete? A fashionista? This post has you covered with ideas for filling a cute tote bag with items Mom will love. Bonus points if the tote bag is handmade. (Though the one pictured was purchased at Target!)

Let your imagination guide you to create flowers from pipe cleaners and display them in a cute paper bucket. This would be a very happy porch present for Mom!

Only three steps needed to complete this fabric necklace: stitch a fabric tube, and alternate filling the tube with wood beads and tying knots. Super easy!

I first made this gift with my nephew for Father's Day, but it works for Moms, too! Let the kids draw on any wood item (box, pendant, cutting board, etc.) with a pencil, then the adults can burn over the drawings with the woodburning tool. Staining is optional on your finished product. 


Even though you may not be able to spend the day with Mom, you can still remember her on Mother's Day with one of these special crafts.
