DIY Handmade Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is coming up this Sunday and if you haven't purchased mom a gift yet, take a look at some of these fresh and fairly simple (with a few exceptions) DIY projects. Just click on the link under each image and it will take you to the How-to page for that item. When in need for creative gift ideas, good old Martha Stewart always comes through! Aside from Mother's Day, these are all great gift ideas for any occasion or for yourself! 

Flower-Arranging Kit for the Mom who loves to garden & arrange flowers

Monogrammed Hand Towel with a letter stencil & fabric paint!

Teacup Lights - melt partially used candles that you already have to fill vintage / mismatched teacups!


  1. these are some perfect ideas for a perfect mom(oops no mom is perfect lol)

  2. I always find beautiful creations through Martha. Great ideas for Mother's Day!


  3. You always make such lovely posts :)

  4. Martha is my girl!! She always saves me in my time of crisis. Like the fast approaching Mother's Day!! Those teacups are too cute!

    PS I'm doing a giveaway!! Check it out :)

  5. you're right about martha, every now and then we need her :) i'm not sure what i'll receive this mother's day. my son is now 17 and last year he drew a self portrait line drawing of himself (at my request) and the year before that, he wrote me a poem. so sweet. i'd rather have those things than all the tea in well you know. great ideas for mom's day! i love love love the homemade cards. :)

  6. great ideas, Martha does no wrong here! I wish I could celebrate mothers day with my mum but I have no opportunity to fly to Finland this weekend. Have a lovely day!
