Craft Roundup: Handmade Gift Ideas for Mom

Celebrate the special lady in your life with these personalized present ideas, including photo holders, fabric bracelets and desk accessories and more

My grandmother loved being a parent so much, she always said everyday was Mother's Day (she was right!). But there's one day a year in May where we make sure to shower our mothers with extra love and affection as a way of saying thank you. It's safe to say that spending time with your family is the best gift of the day, but something made by hand doesn't hurt, either. This week's roundup has several ideas for moms, grandmas, aunts or any special person you want to celebrate on Sunday, May 11.

 

Vintage Wooden Spool Photo Holders

Share a photo of a loved one with one of these sweet photo holders made from vintage wooden spools, courtesy of Miniature Rhino. Don't have any vintage spools? Check the woodcraft aisle of your craft supply store for new, plain spools.

 

Knotted Bracelet Made From Recycled Fabric

A project that doesn't cost a lot to make and looks great when finished? Perfect! Check out Dollar Store Crafts to see how to make this almost-no-sew bracelet.

 

DIY Fabric Flower Pushpins and DIY Desk Accessories

Keep mom's office looking spring-ready with these simple accessories. From pushpins to fabric flowers, a group of these crafts, from Creature Comforts Blog, make for a wonderful gift.

 

Monogram Soap Bottles

We all wash hands many times a day at home, so why not make the experience a bit more personalized? Design Mom shows you how to turn a plain soap pump into a monogrammed bathroom accessory.
