50+ Inexpensive DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and now that Easter is over, you have just enough time to think of something great for Mom! Yes, gift cards are quick and easy, but there are so many wonderful and easy AND inexpensive DIY gift ideas that you can make for your mom this year. :)

The following projects all have great tutorials and can be made for cheap BUT not look cheap at the same time!! And you have to admit that when you make something for $10 and it looks like it would be $50 at the store, it’s pretty darn awesome – right?!

I’ve scoured Blog Land in search of my favorite Inexpensive DIY Mother’s Day Gift ideas, and I’m hoping there is at least one that you think would be perfect for mom this year!! 😀
