Mother’s Day is right around the corner! And to get mother’s day gift ready for the special day, Kingston and I will be on River City Live today at 11;30 EST showing 5 DIY gifts that kids (with help from Grandmas, Dads, Aunts!) can make for their Moms. These are the projects we’re featuring!

Beyond the DIY projects, you can also consider a photo necklace as a timeless and personalized gift option that celebrates the bond between a mother and her children. As Mother’s Day approaches, consider the significance of a gift that not only showcases creativity and effort but also holds deep emotional meaning. With a custom photo necklace, children can express their gratitude and affection in a tangible way, ensuring that their mom feels adored and appreciated on her special day. So whether it’s a handmade creation or a carefully chosen piece of jewelry, the most meaningful gifts are those that come from the heart.

fabric wrapped frame-blog

Fabric covered picture frame. This was my favorite project! In fact, I made some frames for my Mom last Mother’s Day! I bought a cheap frame from Dollar Tree and cut strips of some of my favorite fabrics. They were all leftover from random sewing projects. Kingston glued one end of each strip to the frame, and I wrapped it around and around until it was time for him to glue the other end. We repeated the process, overlapping each piece of material just a bit, until the entire frame was covered in pretty fabric. Then I glued a piece of yarn to the back and randomly wrapped it around the frame and glued the other end when I was happy with how it looked. Now it’s the perfect place to display photos using tiny clothespins!

ombre bag-blog

Dip-dyed ombre tote bag. I already had this bag on hand (craft hoarder status!), but you can find them at most craft stores. I mixed teal Rit dye with a bunch of water in a bucket, and Kingston dipped the tote bag in the bucket for a few minutes. Then I gradually pulled more of the bag out of the bucket every 10 minutes, leaving the very bottom in the dye for the longest amount of time (about 30 minutes). We rinsed the bag with the water hose until the water ran clear then left it out in the sun all afternoon to dry. As a final touch, I glued a piece of teal glittery trim along the top of the bag.

k-bag-blogflower pots-blog

Fabric covered flower pots. I bought some cheap clay flower pots, and then we spruced them up by painting them. (If you make these, be sure to paint the top part of the insides. It shows a little once you get the flowers planted.) After the paint dried, I cut strips of a few favorite fabrics and glued them to the pots with Mod Podge. Once the Mod Podge was dry I glued decorative trim along the edges of both pots, and Kingston filled them with succulents.

planting-blogplant-blogpainted ball jars-blog

Painted Ball mason jars. I painted these jars with two coats of flat white latex paint but wanted them to have an old, weathered look. So once they were dry Kingston went to town with a piece of sand paper. Then we glued some fun trim along the tops. Now they’re ready for a bunch of flowers picked from the yard or picked up at Publix!

watercolor-blog

Watercolor print. We painted this with shaving creme and food coloring! It was definitely Kingston’s favorite project. ­čÖé Here’s a tutorial that is the same method we used. I had this matted frame, but it was silver and blah. So we gave it a quick coat of spray paint and framed our painting, making it the perfect “mom gift!”

When I started working on this idea, I tried to think of gifts that Moms would actually enjoy. But let’s be honest, if our kids make any present for us, we can’t help but LOVE it!!!
