  2. Wooden tray– mom’s love to have trays for serving things and just as display trays all over their houses. Make her a custom faux inlay tray with knob handles or one with rope and metal rustic features.

  5. Clay pet statuesmolding clay into the shape of your mom’s pet (or your pet if she only has fur-grandbabies) is easier than you think and they are so cute to set on a shelf. It doesn’t get more custom handmade than that.

  6. Sea shell frame– collect some shells from the beach or use some from your last family vacation with mom and hot glue them to a plain wooden frame for a sea shell frame. Add a picture of the family at the beach for a great year-round summer reminder.
  7. Cactus pot– cacti are super easy to keep alive, so even a brown thumb can handle these. Make a custom pot or dipped wooden bowl and plant a cactus or two that she can enjoy.

There are tons of gift ideas for Mothers Day out there, but nothing is more special than one that is handmade. The extra sentimentally and thought that goes into a handmade gift will ensure that she likes your present better than she likes your sibling’s present…
