Homemade Mothers Day gifts really are the sweetest to receive as they have been hand made with love. If your child (or their Dad!) needs a steer on something to make for Mother’s Day, then these adorable Mothers Day Crafts might just be the ticket (and we know you’ll be thrilled to receive any of them!).
#1. Photo Flowers
These Photo Flowers are very easy to make and are a great Mother’s Day art & craft project for your child.
Smaller members of the household will enjoy drawing and carefully cutting out the flowers and sticking photos.
#2. Mother’s Day Rosette
You’ll find full instructions to make a Best Grandma Ever rosette and Free Mother’s Day Printable on the club.chicacircle.com website.
A glue gun and paper cutter will make the project go faster but you could improvise and glue and cut by hand.
#3. Encrusted Tea Light Holders
Aren’t these pretty? Craftsbyamanda has the instructions for making these sweet jars to hold tealights.
They were for a suggested craft for a wedding but we think they would make a sweet Mothers Day gift.
We think this I Love You This Much Card from tiffkeetch.blogspot.com is adorable with its trace around hands and concertina join.
Looks like a lovely craft project especially for younger kids.

Decorate a tote bag with cut apples dipped into fabric paint for a stylish shopper for Mum.
Older kids could also practice sewing as the leaves on this project at www.craftstylish.com have been appliqued on. But you could also stamp on leaf shapes in paint too if you didn’t feel confident enough to sew on fabric leaves.
#8. Fingerprint Love Hearts
Inspired by this picture we found on Agirlandagluegun.com, here is a salt dough recipe that can be used for love hearts that your child can then press their finger print onto before baking. You could make a keyring or a pendant.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- cold water.
Mix until it has the consistency of play dough. Bake at 250F/120C for 2 hours, then cool and you could also paint the love heart before attaching ring or cord for the pendant.
What about something very personal from your child? We put together a little sheet that your child can fill in about “My Mum”.
