Crafty Mother’s Day Gifts

(April 2012) - There’s a reason that mom kept your handmade Mother’s Day gifts for all those years—because she knew that they were made with love. This Mother’s Day, check out some fun new twists on an old classic—a handcrafted gift from the heart.

  • Frame a photo of the two of you together. Make a customized photo mat by printing out appropriate lyrics or a poem in a fun font and cutting an opening for the photo.

  • Make your own calendar! Print out photos of family members and a calendar template and have it bound at your local office supply shop for just a few dollars.

  • Handprint art is still cool! Trace a childhood handprint (from one of your previous priceless creations), layer it over your handprint now, and pair it with a meaningful poem. Or do a fun retro twist by going to a paint your own pottery location and setting your handprint in glaze on a coffee mug.

  • Bake her a delicious sweet treat or go the healthy route by making her a fruit bouquet by cutting out fruit slices with cookie cutters and attaching them to skewers.
