8 Last-Minute DIY Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday! If you haven’t quite gotten everything together yet, there’s still time for some last-minute crafty touches. Set aside a crafternoon on Saturday, and you can create some sweet decorations or even a gift that mom will love.

Sure, hitting the big box store is fast and convenient, but those store bought decorations and gifts often come with a hefty carbon footprint. They’re made in far-off factories under questionable conditions, shipped all over the world, and overpackaged in single-use plastic. No, thank you!

Luckily, you can use your crafty skills to opt out of that wasteful system. Here are some DIY Mother’s Day ideas that you can whip up in an afternoon. Easy peasy!
