25 Mother’s Day Craft Gift Ideas!

Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us! There is no better way send Happy Mother’s Day wishes than to make her a gift from the heart!

Luckily, I have 25 great Mother’s Day craft projects that you can make for Mom!


Before, we get to the projects, let’s answer the most important question:

When is Mother’s Day?

I never really thought about until today. Mother’s Day is one of those elusive holidays.

There are two kinds of holidays. The specific date holidays, like Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Those are the easy ones!

Then, there are the elusive holidays, which are a specific day in a month, or some other criteria. Thanksgiving is the only one I can remember, the third Thursday in November. Easy peasy!

Have you ever tried to figure out Easter? I just looked it up and according to Almanac.com, this is how Easter is determined:

Specifically, Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the full Moon that occurs on or just after the spring equinox.

What?! Are you serious?!

So basically, it’s just a look at the calendar and let someone else figure it out kind of holiday.

Be sure to PIN IT for later!
