Love to Craft – Gift Ideas For Mom
This week is all about craft inspiration for gifts to give to your Mom.
Receiving something handmade on Mother’s Day is always a delight.
My kids have often secreted themselves away before Mother’s Day, to make a crafty project for me.
Their handmade cards and little sewing or knitted projects bring a smile to my face.
In this week’s craft inspiration I’ve found some fab projects that would make beautiful gifts for Mom.
Some of the crafty ideas tie in with this year’s Earth Day Theme of Reduce Plastic Pollution.
Plus some other super handmade gifts to try.
Some of the gift ideas shared can be made in a few hours and are so easy to do!
Hope you find some inspiration to go handmade for Mom this year.
