Craft It: Eleven Handmade Gifts for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming! And nothing makes you appreciate your mom more than having kids of your own! My sweet mom has raised four children (my brother Charles, me, my sister Amanda, and my sister Becka). And since I only have 2 kiddos-- I am constantly wondering "how did she do it?!".

With Mother's Day on Sunday, May 10th, I wanted to do something special for all our 'mothers'.  So, I am dedicating this week's posts to "Moms"!

 I am kicking off "Mom Week at Crafty Texas Girls" with lots of crafty ideas and then throughout the week, I will be back with two exciting jewelry giveaways. All in the name of mom! The jewelry is a necklace from Lisa Leonard Designs and earrings from Blue Nile. Two days of giveaways- two chances to win!

Now, let's get going with our "Mom Week" fun with some of my favorite ideas for handmade gifts. These are sweet projects that you can do at home for your mom (or even for yourself!)  Here are a few my favorite things to 'make for mom'.

1. Make a frame (or buy one!) Then add this sweet free printable inside. You can find both here

2. Painted Spoons in Mom's favorite colors. 

3. Make a framed silhouette (no Photoshop required!) 

4. DIY Monogrammed Candles- personalized gifts are always a hit. 

5. Stencil some hand towels in her favorite colors and patterns. 

6. Stitched Journals- these would be so beautiful sitting out on a writing desk or accent table. 

7. Decorate some plates or cups- personalized just for Mom. (The secret to getting the ink to stay is to use an oil based Sharpie!) 

8. DIY Floral Pin to dress up her lapel or purse. 

9. Paint a Mason Jar Gold and fill it with Mom's Favorite Flowers. 

10. Make a Chalk Art Print that says "Happy Mother's Day"

11. Use Mom's favorite fabric to make a 'no sew' table runner

The "Mom Week Giveaways with Crafty Texas Girls" will be right here on Wednesday and Friday. I can't wait for you to see the prizes. So be sure to come on back! Don't forget to come back on Wednesday and Friday for a chance to win a beautiful necklace from Lisa Leonard or a pair of earrings from Blue Nile!
