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.
7 Minute Modern Leaf Wreath
This hoop wreath is such a quick and easy DIY Mothers Day gift. In just a few supplies you will have a sweet minimal wreath for your wall. Or your mum's wall.
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…
DIY Clay Circle Garland
Air drying clay is so amazing and simple to use. It's one of those products that you instantly get hooked on using. This garland would be a sweet modern touch to any room.
Nail Polish Marble Lotion Bottle Dispenser
Adding a marble look to a lotion bottle is such an easy way to add some colour. It's so easy you will probably have the majority of the supplies at home already.
Using paper mache letters, artificial flowers and a couple of other extra items, this is a sweet way to give the gift of flowers that are personal and will last!
DIY Quote Mirror Art
Looking for simple and easy? You can't go past this home decor craft. A mirror, some stickers and you're done. I think I actually have both just laying around the house!
DIY Colour-blocked Tall Planters
These planters are a pretty simple DIY and very on-trend at the moment! I love everything that Kara does, she's all about the colour.
Floral Bath Salts DIY Mother's Day Gifts
These little jars of sweet florally goodness are quick and easy to whip up. Add your own scent and they look absolutely adorable.
I hope you enjoyed this round-up of DIY Mother's Day Gifts that you can create so quickly. We're all short on time these days so it's so nice when your *favourite* child takes time out to handmake something for you.
So show up the other siblings, they just don't need to know that it didn't really take you long to make at all. Your mum deserves something special, I'd love to see your DIY gifts for her! Share your finished pieces with me via Instagram #avmdiy or by tagging @avisualmerriment on Facebook.
