Mother’s Day is an important day to celebrate your mom and all that she does for you. If you are lucky enough to have a DIY loving mom, here is a great list of gift ideas you can get or do for her this year. The best part about these gift ideas are they are catered to your very special DIY loving mom.

  1. Clean Out the Garage 

A cluttered and filthy garage is something no one wants but most people have to deal with on a daily basis. Do your mom a favor and clean out her garage for her. You can make it a surprise, so she’ll show up to it on Mother’s Day or you can gift it to her as coupon for her to use at a later date.

  1. Make a Jewelry Tree 

Here is a great DIY project you can make for your mom with a few recycled plastic soda bottles. If your mom could use a place on her bathroom counter or dresser to hold all of her jewelry, this could be a great project. Remember to recycle the rest of the plastic bottle you don’t use for this project.

  1. Braided T-shirt Rag Rug 

Your DIY mom would love to have something you made especially for her. This rug may take a bit of time and effort to make, but that makes it even more special. For this project, you will need plenty of colorful old t-shirts, sharp scissors, thread, and a needle. This is a great DIY project that also allows you to recycle some of your old t-shirts.

  1. Install Hardwood Floors

If you want this DIY gift to be a surprise for your mom, you may need to send her away for the weekend. If you want your moms blessing first, you could give this gift to her in the form of a coupon. To learn how to install a hardwood floor, check out our Hardwood Flooring Installation Tutorial.

  1. Organize the Kitchen

Cooking in an organized kitchen can feel like heaven, especially if you are not used to it. Do your mom a favor and surprise her with a clean and organized kitchen. If your mom loves to cook or bake, she will love having a neat and organized kitchen. Be sure to match all Tupperware lids to containers and re-organize the pantry and all cabinets.

  1. Color Coded Cutting Boards

Color coding your cutting boards is a great way to avoid contamination while cooking. You can easily make these for your mom this Mother’s Day with three cutting boards, paint, and a paint brush. If your mom loves to cook, these are a perfect gift for your DIY loving mom.

  1. Mason Jar Picture Frames

Mason jar crafts have been popping up everywhere, but this DIY project is specifically for your DIY mom. You can make a picture frame and vase for your mom out of one mason jar. This project is great for Mother’s Day because you can make it yourself and put a picture of you in it.

  1. Help with Gardening

If your mom is anything like mine, she’ll love some help with gardening for Mother’s Day. Granting the weather allows, I will be helping my mom with her gardening this Mother’s Day. This is a great gift for your DIY mom because she will get to spend time with you and she’ll end up with her garden just the way she likes it.

No matter what gift you plan on giving to your mother for her special day, she is going to love because it’s from you. Celebrate your mom this Sunday by doing something she wants to do and giving her something she will be sure to love.
