DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

May 6, 2013

photoMother’s Day is May 12 and time is running out to get a special gift to honor her. Rather than giving a gift from the mall this year, we suggest making Mom a handmade present that shows your appreciation. Here are three of our favorite DIY gift ideas using items you can easily find at your local Goodwill store.

Tablet Holder

We love this cool idea from our friends at Mamie Jane’s for making a DIY iPad/tablet holder from an old cutting board (Jane scored hers at a thrift store for a dollar).

Upcycled T-Shirt Scarf

Pre-owned t-shirts from Goodwill get a second life as a standout accessory that complements your mother’s unique style. Follow these simple steps from Katelyn Wheaton of Ninth & Bird to transform old tees into a brand new spring scarf Mom is sure to love.

Candle Teacup

A trip to the thrift store is sure to turn up an old teacup (and matching saucer). Filled with fragrant candle wax, you can make a delicate candle teacup to warm Mom’s kitchen.

    I love the idea of a candle in a cup, but the cutting board iPad holder is definitely a WIN! Will try finding one for my mother in law!
    Thanks for the ideas,
