10 Mother’s Day Crafts + Cards


First up is cards. If you do nothing else for Mother’s Day crafts you should at least get her a card, right?!

1. Stamped Cards

I love stamped cards. I make them for everything from thank you to holidays. You can find all our cards (stamped and printed) in our shop, here.

For supplies for these, I simply used kraft card stock and fun stamps. You can find the same paper here and the stamps at Hobby Lobby.

2. Printable Cards

Another great way to do cards is to find printable ones. Lucky for you, I’m giving away 4 free ones. Download these funny cards for Mom on the Journey Junkies page. However, if you’re not into DIY, you can find them printed for sale here.

For printing at home, I use very thick card stock. Anything 100 lb or higher is best for quality. However, it’s not going to go through every printer. If you’re looking for other options, check out papers paper or paper source.

Wine-Related Gifts

If you know me, you know I love wine, and as it turns out, my Mom does too. She tends to like the sweet stuff, but that doesn’t stop us from vineyard-hopping together. These below are for wine lover.

3. Wine Bottle Centerpiece

First up in the wine category is this set of three wine bottles. I’ve had these in my Etsy shop for a while with initials. They are pretty popular and I love the idea of them spelling out Mom with a heart.

For these, you’ll simply need wine bottles, jute (for wrapping), lace, heart, and the letters. You’ll also need glue and paint. Personally, I like drinking the wine first, but if you aren’t a wine drinker, you can purchase empty bottles here.

4. Wine Bottle Label

If you’re mom does love wine, and you don’t want to give her empty bottles, then give her a full one with this next idea. Download our wine bottle label here on Etsy and print it at home. Or you can purchase them already printed and ready to attach in our shop.

Bookworm Gifts

5. Bookmark

I actually love to give my mom bookmarks. She’s one of the few people in my life who still uses them. Therefore, it makes a great little gift. Sometimes I’ll purchase them during my travels as they are also easy to pack. Make this simple bookmark with the supplies below.

You can find the wooden tree slice (or any other kind of wooden block) at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. Attach the photo to the wood piece of your choice with mod podge.

8. Heart Frame

This next photo gift is super easy. I love that you can easily change out the photo by using a clip. However, if you don’t want to do that, you could attach the photo to the heart with mod podge.
