I remember as a child, my mom always preferred handmade gifts to anything I could have bought her. With Mother's Day quickly approaching, here's a roundup of some easy do it yourself gifts for those mothers in your life.
1 - This felt dahlia corsage is a bit time and labor intensive (that's a lot of petals to cut), but with flower pins all over the internet the mom in your life will be on trend. Full instructions at Holidash: DIY Mother's Day Corsage - Felt Dahlia Flower Brooch (via Craftzine.com blog).
2 - Photos are always a great fits and this accordion freestanding gallery would look at home atop a mantle or a long bookcase. The black and white photos with the warm wood creates a nice contrast that makes the photos pop. Instructions are at The How-To Gal: Mother's Day DIY Ideas.
3 - For that technophile mom, here's a great idea for an iPad case lined with a soft material to keep the screen virtually smudge free. Instructions at Unpluggd: How To Create a Slightly Self Cleaning iPad Sleeve
4 - For moms with a green thumb, these flowers will bring her instant joy, but once planted will also grow to fill her garden. Find out how to make them at How Does She...: Plantable Seeded Paper Flowers (via Craftzine.com blog)
5 - Sometimes a card says everything you need to say. Why not say it with vegetables? Get creative with beets to make stamps for cards. Instructions at Re-Nest: Beet Print Your Own Cards & Stationery
