#1 Pom-Pom Flower Box
If Mom loves flowers, fill up a window box for her with bright, beautiful blooms. This project requires a hot glue gun, and some supervision from an adult, but when it's done Mom will be delighted.
#2 Crayon Candle
This project is a two-in-one: It makes a cute candle for Mom, and it also uses up those crayon nubs that are too small to color with. Be sure to include Mom's favorite colors!
#3 Painted Rock Garden Markers
A gift that's both beautiful and practical, these rocks help Mom remember where she planted her herbs and veggies in her garden. If she's not the green-thumb type, you can use the technique to make a desk paperweight.
#4 Scrabble-Tile Frame
The best thing about a Scrabble-tile frame is that you can personalize it however you want: Include Mom's name, the kids' names, or even hobbies she likes to do.
#5 Pom Animal Card
There's nothing cuter than a mama animal showing love to her babies. For this 3D card, kids can make a family of chicks, penguins, or — our favorite — flamingoes. Or they can include all three!
#6 Fingerprint Heart Keepsake
This craft is perfect for a first Mother's Day, since even the tiniest ones can do it (with a little help) and make art to save forever. The mini-canvas (with easel!) makes it look like your baby's a pro already.
#7 Painted Pot Holders
If Mom loves to cook, give her something that'll make her smile every time she enters the kitchen. All you have to do is start with DIY canvas pot holders.
#8 Fingerprint Mug
The butterflies on this mug are made from kid fingerprints, so they're truly one-of-a-kind. It makes for a gift that's pretty, and also useful.
#9 Flower Wreath
Felt, pom-poms, and the secret ingredient — egg cartons! — are transformed into a beautiful wreath you can display all spring and summer long. Making the flowers and letting them dry, then gluing them to the wreath and adding the pom-pom centers is a multi-step process, so this is better for older (and more patient) crafters.
#10 Thumbprint Planter
The petals on this planter are also made from a child's thumbprint. The end result is both pretty enough to display in the garden, and a meaningful snapshot of how small their little hands can be.
#11 Picture-Frame Vase
Acrylic paint can turn any jar into a planter that Mom would love to put on a table or a shelf. But leave a heart-shaped opening for a baby picture (clear contact paper helps you from accidentally painting in the heart area), and the project becomes extra special.
#12 Felt Flower Bookmarks
If Mom is a reader, she'd love a sunny bookmark to help hold her place. The petals are made of felt and finished off with a button center, but the project requires no sewing.
#13 Craft Stick Flower Pot
This colorful little planter is finished off with a wooden tag in the shape of a watering can, but you can also personalize it with a tag in the shape of a hobby or interest that Mom loves. Finish it off with an easy-to-care-for succulent inside.
#14 Button Monogram
A personalized, one-of-a kind monogram that's also easy to make? A win for everyone involved. Hint: If your little artist is messy with the glue, craft glue dots are basically made for this type of project.
#15 DIY Herb Garden
The secret to this project is finding chalkboard paint in fun colors, like pink or purple, so you can label the herbs and still have a pretty pot to put them all in. Then, tending the herb garden with the kids is a fun activity the family can do together all summer long.
#16 Heart Stamp Art
With a quick adjustment, an old, cardboard paper towel roll becomes the perfect heart stamp for use on cards, art projects, and gallery-worthy collages. Use a different color on each end of the tube for a two-in-one stamper.
#17 I Love You Because Flowers
Part card, part craft, Mom will be extra touched to learn all of the reasons why the family loves her so much. There may even be tears.
#18 Teacup Card
With a little crafty ingenuity, an old egg carton becomes a card befitting any tea-drinking mom. Gift her some bags of her favorite brew to go with it.
#19 Cupcake Liner Flowers
Upcycle all those old cupcake liners and loose buttons you have lying around the house into a garden that doesn't need to be watered and never wilts. This craft is super easy, even real little ones can get creative with it.
#20 Bottle Cap Photo Magnets
Preserve Mom's favorite family memories on the fridge in a delightfully retro way. Doing this last-minute, without enough time to collect caps? You can buy them.
#21 Fruit-Stamped Tea Towels
Get a colorful splash of citrus in the kitchen with an easy stamping project. You make the stamp by putting paint on actual slices of fruit, and then outline everything in a black marker.
#22 Stamped Fruit and Veggie Towel
For another twist on the hand-stamped towel idea, you can use different shapes and sizes of fingerling potatoes to make a variety of fruits and veggies. Paint on seeds and stems for the finishing touch.
#23 Easter Egg Succulent Planter
With a few tweaks, you can repurpose some of those old plastic Easter eggs into a set of succulent planters for Mom. Hexagonal tile makes for the perfect base.
#24 Ribbon Heart
The cutout design of this project makes for a 3D card she can hang up at her desk at work — or even a piece of art worthy of framing. For a twist, tailor the ribbons to Mom's favorite colors.
#25 DIY Bath Sachet
What mom really wants? A minute to relax. Help her out with these cute, DIY bath sachets (and a promise not to bother her when she's using them).
Thanks for reading! Enjoy ;)
