My mom always said, “Just do something handmade, that means so much more than anything you could buy”.
When was the last time you made a handmade gift for someone? How about for your mom? I love making gifts for people, especially for my family!

Check out these 10 awesome DIY gift idea that will warm your mom’s heart and get your creative juices flowing!

Hand knitted Wash Cloths (My mom’s favorites)
When I went to Texas in March I was really surprised to see my mom was still using the knitted washcloths I made about 8 years ago! She swears that they are so much better than anything shes ever used! Very easy to make and affordable, even a beginner can make these. If you’ve never knitted but want to learn, here is a link to my free knitting 101 video course.
As a mom, I’m a sucker for little hands and feet! I would probably aww myself to death if I received this adorable handprint pillow.
Imagine mom’s smile every day when she pulls down this mug with butterflies made from her little bug’s fingerprints! Plus kiddos will probably love the chance to get their fingers messy! If you have a tiny one that doesn’t want to touch paint consider using a dobber instead.
Another handprint project! My daughter loves to cook with me and will wear oven mitts any chance she gets, so getting her to leave a print wouldn’t be hard at all.
Printed candles can be done by either adults or children with some assistance. The decorative possibilities are endless with this project!
These votives are so sweet and another project that could be done by someone of any age.
I’m slightly obsessed with string art despite never making any myself! One day I’ll make one, I really will!
Who wouldn’t love a cute snuggly corgi of there own? Especially one that doesn’t bark or pee 😉
This trivet tutorial is fun and easy, even someone without knitting experience will whip a few of these up in no time.
Mom life is hard on the hands, from washing dishes, wiping butts, cleaning tiny faces, and the countless other things we deal with daily. So basically, your/every mom deserves this for all the havoc you’ve caused on her hands.
