6 DIY Gifts for Mom
Photo Gift Instagram Picture Frame
I absolutely LOVE this DIY gift for mom because I love taking pictures. I usually find that at the end of the year I have hundreds and hundreds of pictures from family gatherings and vacations. So, about 3 years ago I started using those photos that I had from throughout the year and using them in my Christmas gifts. I would print the image on an ornament, or print out the picture and put it in a pretty handmade frame.
But this DIY gift for mom is SO cool because it’s a picture frame that you can easily make yourself and put your printed pictures in them! This gift is so amazing that you can use it for any family member too, not just mom!
Sparkle Ring/Trinket Dish
I don’t know about you but I have A LOT of jewelry. From earrings to rings, to necklaces, to pins, to bracelets! I’m sure a lot of women and moms have a lot of jewelry so as much as we would love to buy them jewelry all the time, it’s probably not the smartest thing to do. But instead of buying jewelry, you can make this really great DIY Sparkle Ring Dish to help them organize some of the jewelry they already have instead!
This ring dish is an awesome DIY gift for mom! Read the full tutorial for this Sparkle Ring Dish over at A Modern Cinderella.
Blogger Ashley Kurtz, the founder and content creator of A Modern Cinderella says it best:
“Moms probably already have a closet brimming with lotions and coffees, so why not gift them a trinket dish instead? These DIY Sparkle Ring Dishes are inexpensive, easy-to-make so the kids can help and are wonderful for gift giving!”
Another amazing DIY gift for mom is this Lavender Vanilla Lip Scrub. I love using quality ingredients, chemical free lotions, and scrubs so I know this is something I would definitely LOVE to get as a gift. You would think that making a homemade lip scrub is hard but Chelsea Johnson, the founder of Making Manzanita, makes it SO easy and walks you through each step (with pictures!).
I don’t know what mom wouldn’t love a lip scrub, especially one handmade with love and care!
Marble Clay Ring Holder
Another easy to make and useful DIY gift for mom is this Marble Clay Ring Holder. You can find this easy to follow tutorial over at A Modern Cinderella by Ashley Kurtz. (You can also find her DIY ring dish there too!)
Ashley Kurtz from A Modern Cinderella really make some amazing points:
“Although I don’t know a mom that doesn’t cherish a handmade gift from her child, some of the gifts lack in longevity, and after a while, they can really start to take up space. These Marble Ring Holders are inexpensive, easy-to-make, and have a lot of room for customization! Kids will love marbling and shaping the clay, and moms will love a gift that is beautiful and practical!”
Here’s another awesome DIY gift for mom that she will surely love! These Lotion Bars are super easy to make and only need 4 ingredients. The lotion bars are also used to heal cracked or rough hands. It’s like a 2 in 1 gift!
You can find out all about how to make these amazing lotion bars over at Dogwoods & Dandelions where Julie B. tells you all about these lotions bars and how to make them. She includes a ton of pictures to help guide you through how to make a lotion bar too!
Reusable Gift Sacks
And last but not least this DIY gift for mom is actually something that you can make in addition to another gift because it’s a pretty reusable gift sack! So not only can you make a heartfelt gift for mom but you can also make a reusable gift sack to wrap it in and it becomes a second mini gift!
How cool is that??
