Who doesn't love receiving DIY Mother's Day Gifts? Nothing beats knowing someone put effort into creating something just for you. These crafts are all absolutely gorgeous gifts that you can proudly hand out. There's nothing worse than something that “looks” DIY is there? We want DIY but not bad DIY! Fear not as good homemade gifts do not need to take a lot of time or money for that matter.

Perhaps Covid-19 has you stuck in isolation, quarantine or even lockdown? If you don't have the supplies required for these crafts, jump online and order them. If you can leave the house, deliver them to the door of your mum or send her a pic of her gift, ready and waiting for when you get to see her next.

Now time to show that amazing woman who raised you how appreciative you are this Mother's Day with one of these beautiful gifts.

20 Minute DIY Tea Towel Half Aprons

Stitch one long straight line and that's all the sewing required with these easy aprons. I love that you can customise these and add your own embellishments or trim for a little more personality.

DIY Confetti Shoes

These are super fun shoes that are not just simple to create but also so unique. A DIY for the super rad mums. Rachel made these after seeing a similar Kate Spade pair with a price tag that was a little too high. These look amazing!

DIY Raw Stone Earrings

These are gorgeous and I love anything to do with raw stones. There's seriously not much to these but they'll be an absolute hit. Only three supplies needed to pull these off.

No-Sew Pom Pom Pool + Picnic Blankets

Have yourself a beach babe or poolside mum? I'd have to say the best thing about these adorable blankets is that there's no sewing required. I also love me a good pom-pom. These blankets are so colourful and fun, they're bound to bring a smile to mum's face.

True Gold Foil Wall Art Quote

I love the impact this project has. You can use your own quote or download the free printable then add your metallic. These foils come in a great range of colours too so you're not just limited to gold.

Wood Triangle Trivet DIY Gift

A great Mother's Day gift is also a useful one. These trivets made from natural wood are a beautiful contemporary touch to an otherwise boring (but so practical) household item.

Aromatherapy Candle Diffusers with Himalayan Pink Salt

Oh my goodness I was a little bit beside myself when I found this therapeutic DIY. I love anything to do with essential oils and always get excited with new ways of using them. Mix your preferred oil blend with the salt and the warmth from the candle will activate the salt to release your scent.

Washi Tape Candle Holders

Washi tape is so versatile, the possibilities are endless once you start seeing how you can use them. Kelly created these candle holders to coordinate with a table setting. She even made a plain table runner into some colourful fun with washi tapes.

DIY Tassel Earrings

How sweet are these tassel earrings? Perfect for the boho or glam mum. Design them with your own colour palette in mind. I would love to make some ombre ones with varying shades of the same colour. Now to pick a colour…
