When I was in primary school, I used to do DIY presents for Mother’s Day in class. The teacher would chose a DIY/craft project and all the little monsters would be working on that project for weeks in order to have it ready for Mother’s Day. I have such lovely memories from that time!
I must say that when I was younger, I wasn’t very good at making crafts and DIY but I got better at it with time… or at least that’s what I would like to think.
So, as I got older I tried to keep the tradition going and I still make something for my mum on her day. I usually combine it with a non-DIY present and a card as well, making her super happy.
The following DIY projects are my favourite for the occasion and I think any mums would love them:
Semi-precious stone soaps
I’m sure some mums would enjoy washing their hands with these semi-precious stone soaps. The complete tutorial can be found on Fallfordiy.com blog.
Coconut body butter in a jar
This idea is pretty cool and useful at the same time. The full recipe is from thegunnysack.com.
Simple beaded necklace
Another idea is to follow the DIY tutorial I did and make a simple beaded necklace. You can even do it for yourself too and have mum & daughter matching necklaces.
Antiqued mercury mirror glass flower vase
If you want to get some flowers for your mum this DIY project is perfect for you. Here you can find the tutorial from 17apart.com
Perfect for tea lovers! Check Liagriffith.com for the instructions.
The tutorial is very easy to follow and I’m sure Mum will love the smell. More info in sayyes.com
Prism Manson Jar Light
I love the idea and diyready.com explains the step-by-step process very well.
