Happy Friday, friends! Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, so I thought I’d share a round-up of some DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas with you for this week’s 5 Friday Favorites! Each of these are relatively simple and extremely affordable. We have lots of Moms and Grandmas in our lives that we like to bless on Mother’s Day, so having something easy and low cost we can give each of them that still feels thoughtful is a must. I hope this helps you prepare something special for the Moms in your life this year!
1. STACKING WIRE DIY BANGLES
BY LIVE CRAFT LOVE
Aren’t these DIY bangle bracelets stunning?? And I read over the tutorial – they’re super easy to make! You could customize the colors and beads to a style you know your mom will love. I may just have to make some for myself… 😉
2. DIY TILE PHOTO COASTERS
I made some of these a few years ago as a Christmas gift for my parents with photos of all their grand kids and they LOVED them. They can be used just about anywhere and if you didn’t want to use pictures, you could make them with craft paper in a pattern or color your mom loves. 🙂
3. DIY ARM KNIT BLANKET
BY PLACE OF MY TASTE
I’ll be the first to admit I’m obsessed with cozy blankets, but YOU have to admit that this arm knit blanket awesome! And the yarn for these is typically expensive, but the stuff Aniko uses is pretty affordable. Head to her post for both written and video tutorials.
4. HOMEMADE STRING ART BOARD
BY LILY ARDOR
I love the row of pictures along the top of this “MOM” string art sign! What a fun, and easy-to-update, way to personalize your gift. Lily has free printables for the “MOM” portion on her blog, so be sure to head there for the full tutorial.

5. DIY HANDPRINT MASON JAR SUCCULENT PLANTER
BY ME 🙂
I made these with my kids last year and they turned out really neat! I used left over chalk paint and a mason jar I already had, so total cost was $3 for the succulent. Check out this post for the full tutorial.
So, what do you think of my 5 favorite DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas? I hope they help you as you prep for Mother’s Day this month! I’m excited to try a few of them too. 🙂
Have a fabulous weekend, friends!
