ROUNDUP: Quick & Easy Mother’s Day Crafts

ROUNDUP: Quick & Easy Mother’s Day Crafts

If you’re in a pinch and need to come up with a last-minute Mother’s Day gift, look no further! We’ve assembled a list of craft tutorials that have caught our eye–and all of them can easily be whipped up by this Sunday, no problemo.
Burda Style has a tutorial for making a luxurious eye mask, perfect for moms who want to relax in style. I love the peacock-feather Liberty fabric used in the tutorial, and the lavender-scented filling equals instant naptime.
These magnetized photo frame clips from Craftster user AidanNia are a cute way to remind mom you care–and what a great way to hang up kiddie art on the fridge! You can paint the wood however you like, or even decoupage the frame with pretty paper.
Amy from Angry Chicken has been experimenting with all-natural bath and beauty products, and her Coconut-Vanilla Sugar Scrub would be a great choice for moms who need some pampering.
Jenny from LJCFYI designed these fun seed packet envelope templates to use as wedding or baby announcements, but with a little graphic know-how you could easily tweak the design for Mother’s Day. You could make a sweet gift basket with them using a pretty pot and new gardening gloves.
Finally, something sweet for mom–these Bourbon Balls posted on Shelterrific. They are made with a blend of crush pecans, vanilla wafer cookies, cocoa and a touch or bourbon. A yummy no-bake treat, and it’s unexpected (unlike a box of drugstore chocolates).
