Homemade Mother’s Day Cards That She’s Going To Love
For the Mom Who Rules the Roost
Glue yellow pompoms on a patterned card to create a mama bird and baby chicks. Use a felt-tip pen to draw on the beaks and feet.
For the Mom Who Makes Every Birthday Special
Candles, a ribbon, and a sentiment—“You light up my life”—are a simple way of showing just how much you care. Use round gold gel stickers to stand in as flames atop each candle.
For the Mom Who Loves a Game of Scrabble
Cover a blank card with strips of washi tape in assorted sizes and patterns. Glue scrabble pieces on top to spell Mom, Mama, or any variation you like.
For the Mom Who Is Always Best Dressed
If you don’t have the best penmanship, you should be able to find at the craft store clear stickers with a sentiment that best describes your mom. Gently tie a piece of thin string around a thicker ribbon to make the silhouette. Glue a tiny bead to the bow to give a pretty finish.
For the Mom Who Makes the Best… Everything!
Create a mock teaspoon set using wooden spoons in assorted sizes. Tie them together with string, glue to the card, and write, “Nobody measures up to you” at the bottom.
For the Mom Who Always Keeps You in Line
Start with a blank card, miniature clothes pins, string, small metal rim tags, metal eyelit tags, and glue. Write “Mom” on the round tags and attach to the string with the miniature clothespins. Place one of the metal eyelit tags between each of the round lettered tags as you add them to the string. Glue the tags to the card. You can leave the ends of the string loose—no need to glue them down.
For the Mom Who Always Found a Special Place to Display Your Artwork
Use large buttons, string, and fabric scraps to create this crafty card. Anything you have around the house should work just fine to create a mistmatched, nostalgic look.
For the Mom Who Encourages You To Look on the Bright Side
Cut a circle in a piece of yellow-patterned paper. Fold the paper, accordion style, and glue to the card. A large piece of yellow ribbon will be used to make the rays. Simply cut triangles in assorted sizes and glue around the yellow circle. At the bottom of the card write, “You are my sunshine!”
For the Mom Who Loves a Centerpiece
Make a centerpiece of your own with a vase made of a fabric scrap and blooms of buttons. Tie a few tiny bows in complementary colors and glue to the base of the vessel silhouette.
For the Mom Who You’re Always Thinking Of
It’s all about the words here. Type out the passage below on your computer. Be sure to use a pretty font and feminine color. Print the quote, glue it to construction paper, then glue to seed paper. Punch a hole at the top of the paper and tie a ribbon through to give a pretty finish.
