5 DIY Mother’s Day Projects

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 8, and if you want to have a handmade holiday, now’s the time to get crafty! From flowers and decorations to the gift itself, there are lots of ways to add a bit of handmade charm to your Mother’s Day. Have you guys been doing any crafts to get ready for Mother’s Day? I’d love to hear what you’re up to in the comments!

1. Fabric Flowers

Instead of a cut bouquet that’s just going to wilt, why not whip up a bundle of forever flowers this year? Fabric flowers are fun and simple to make, and unlike a store bought bouquet they don’t come with a hefty carbon footprint. I’d recommend laying out all of your fabric pieces before you cut a thing to make sure you’re happy with your color selections. It will save you time in the end if you spend a few minutes on design at the beginning.

Mother's Day

Create a personalized Mother's Day calendar. Start your custom calendar on Mother's Day. Craft a heart-felt daily message or quote for each day of the year that celebrates a beloved Mother. Enhance your calendar with a custom cover border or red script font. Give a unique Mother's Day gift that will last for an entire year.
