More DIY Gift Ideas for Mom

Yesterday I shared a few ideas for how to customize some of the projects from my DIY archives to make a gift for your Mom.  Today I'm sharing a few crafty ideas new to you and me.

How about a cute pearl bracelet?  Click here for the simple tutorial.

If you're running short on time, this simple embroidery floss wrapped wreath looks easy to make but is stunning in its simplicity.  Try it with Mom's favorite colours.

Spring has sprung(ish) in my neck of the woods and these juicy felt coasters would be a gift as cheery as the season.

I love this tutorial for making a tiered cake stand because, with plastic plates, this is perfect for Mom's patio parties!

Rummage through family photos to select a few choice ones to turn into mini polaroid magnets.  So sweet!

If making something from scratch seems a little daunting, try a simple makeover.  For example, see how this plain ring got a little spruce. . .

Terracotta planters and some paint are all you need to make Mom some fun vessels for herbs or colourful flowers.

Baked goods are always appreciated.  Spruce up a tin for presentations points, or make a mix so Mom can whip up something tasty later (and not have to share).
