6 DIY gift ideas for Mother's Day

Hello, and welcome to another edition of the You Can Do-It-Yourself series, this time dedicated to Mother's Day gifts.

In Portugal Mother's Day is celebrated in the first Sunday of May so there isn't really much time left, so most of the projects below are quick makes.

6 DIY gift ideas for Mother's Day

All tutorials come with detailed instructions, using different materials so that you can choose your favorite. There's really no excuse not to try at least one of these. Check them out below:

Spa and Pampering in a Jar

DIY Ceramic Tile Photo Coasters

Which one is your favorite? For my mother I'm leaning towards either the spa in a jar or those sharpie mugs...I'll let you know what I made in a couple of weeks.

In any case, I hope you've enjoyed this little list of ideas, and do come back next week to see what I'll be sharing

The purpose of the You Can Do-It-Yourself series is to share wonderful projects every week in 2017 and show you that there are lots of things that we are used to buying but than can be perfectly made by us. All links posted will obviously be DIY tutorials with clear instructions and/or free patterns, so that everyone can easily replicate them.
I've created a specific page for the series, which will include links to the crafts already covered. If you have suggestions for any of the topics, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will try to include your ideas as much as possible (with proper credit). And if you actually make some of these projects (which I hope you do), please share with me photos or links and I will be very happy to post them here too!

Happy Thursday,
