Clay Cheese Markers
If Mom is a foodie, we've got the perfect DIY gift idea. These air-dry clay cheese markers are perfect for entertaining and are super-simple to make! Roll out a thin, even layer of air-dry clay, then cut shapes using small cookie cutters. Stamp letters and designs into half of the cut clay. You'll need two of the same shape for each marker.
Cut bamboo skewers to desired length and sandwich between two pieces of clay. Press to seal. Paint with desired acrylic paint and let dry. Cheers to cheese!
Heart Mother's Day Card
Here's a card with heart. You don't need a lot to create a pretty Mother's Day card she's sure to treasure. Simply cut a heart out of patterned cardstock or scrapbooking paper. Glue the heart on a piece of coordinating paper and you're done! For easy message writing, glue a piece of white or cream paper inside the card.
Editor's Tip: Try using textured paper for even more pop!
Patterned Jewelry Dish
Give Mom a pretty gift she can display all year. This small dish is also perfect for collecting jewelry or change.
Roll out acrylic clay to 1/4 inch thick and trace a heart shape with a toothpick. Trim off excess clay. Emboss clay with any pattern you like. Place a paper bowl upside down on a baking tray, and place your clay creation upside down on top, gently rounding the edges to match the bowl. Bake according to manufacturer's instructions. Sand with fine-grit sandpaper and paint with acrylic paint if desired. Seal with decoupage medium.
Heart String Art
Say it with string art. This Mother's Day gift is a striking way to say "I love you." To create, paint a piece of lightweight wood. Trace a heart shape using a pencil, and stencil the outline of LOVE. Tap thin nails along the lines of the shape and word, spacing them about 1/2 inch apart. Loop a thin string from nail to nail until you achieve the desired look. Keep the pattern random.
Felt Heart Pins
These colorful felt hearts make perfect Mother's Day gifts. Or create a DIY Mother's Day card by gluing them to a blank card.
