12 Pretty DIY Mother’s Day Gifts She’ll Love

I love my mom, but she’s hard to shop for – however, she does love DIY Mother’s Day gifts! if you are in the same boat, check out these 12 project ideas.

DIY Mother's Day Gifts She'll LoveMy mom. I love her. I love her because she lets me call her names like Mamma-Lamma-Ding-Dong and Mamsie. Although Mamsie wasn’t her favorite . . . that one was from Five Little Peppers (maybe she didn’t like the book?). She also lets me sit in her lap, even though I’m 37 years old. Doesn’t she sound great?

The only problem with Lil’ Mama is that she is hard to shop for. Both my parents are, so it’s a constant challenge. But you know what I really love about my mom? She LOVES handmade Mother’s Day gifts. Which makes me happy, since that’s what I do.

I’m looking for the perfect Mother’s Day project to make her this year, so I wanted to show you some of the best handmade items I found on my search. If you want some great inspiration for your mom, scroll down!
