They May just be so delighted
Mother’s Day is once a year, but once a year is hardly enough to show love for the women who raise us. For the moms, aunts, grandmothers, or anyone else who guided us through life, some thorough appreciation is in order. And what better way to show that appreciation than to get crafty and create something from the heart? Mother may know best, but you know what she’ll really like this May 14th. Read on for Mother’s Day craft ideas that any mom would enjoy!
Whether your mom loves going to the spa, or is just really in need of some relaxation and down time, get crafty with some pampering projects and ideas! This DIY sugar scrub recipe from Wellness Mama (how appropriate) uses just three ingredients to make an awesome Mother’s Day craft that keeps on giving. Invigorate the spa experience with a homemade Herbal Bath Tea from us at the Hippie Hobby to really make her day, or follow these easy steps from She Knows to craft your own candle.
Any of these gifts on their own are awesome, but they also can be combined and given as a set! Complete the spa theme by easily making all of these crafts, each of which are sure to make your mom feel spa-tacular.
May is the perfect time to get outside, and provides a whole new avenue for our crafty selves. Grab empty paint cans from Lowe’s or save your next empty wine bottle to make Mom a homemade bird feeder! A feeder can be created quickly and easily, while still adding color and life to any yard.
Feeling up for a challenge? Check out this awesome post from My So Called Crafty Life on how to make a feeder specifically for hummingbirds.
You can also show love for Mom and the outdoors with some awesome garden-themed crafts. Get inspired with some repurposed garden containers to bring beauty inside or outside the home. Find some furniture or even just used china at a thrift store for a cheap way to bring your Mom’s favorite plants and flowers to life.
Wine on its own makes a great present, but crafting with wine in mind makes a great present even better. Moms who love to have a good bottle on hand would love to try a cork-inspired craft, like this DIY cork heart project from us here at the Hippie Hobby.
You can always craft it yourself and give it as a present, or send the kit to her and support her creative vibes.
Want to get crafty with Mom? Find a local wine-and-board-shop and treat her to a night of painting and wine! Check Groupon for deals on paint nights in your area, they usually have some great offers. She’ll not only cherish the experience, but the memories created will be as prominent and beautiful as the finished product.
Moms will appreciate any of these crafts, and all of them can be a process you both share in and create together. Getting creative with a Mother’s Day craft offers more than just a gift for your mom; your effort and time speak volumes that a price tag or gift receipt cannot. And these ideas are by no means exclusive to May 14th. Because while Mother’s Day is once a year, we can and should celebrate the women in our life all year long.
