With Mother’s day only around the corner, I thought I would give you some DIY gift ideas. Nothing say’s I love you then a handmade present does. I remember being little and giving my Mam a present I had made in school and feeling so proud of my little handmade presents. Well, I may be older now but I still love to make gifts and I am going to share some today with you that you can easily make in an afternoon. I hope you get some inspiration. I will make sure to add links to these projects and include the videos too.
DIY Flower Box
You will be bombarded with flowers in the lead up to Mother’s Day and they can be really expensive especially for the custom made flower boxes. Well, here is a budget-friendly gift for you. I recycled an old teacup box and turned it into a floral display. I used some flowers from Lidl that were less than €5 for this DIY. Catch the full post here.
DIY Teacup Bird Feeder
The perfect present for the garden lover and a great way to reuse old china. I made a few of these and turned them into a wall display for my garden. You don’t have to make a wall display but why not transform some old teacups into bird feeders that you can hang from a tree. You can get creative and wrap them in pretty gift boxes too.

DIY Rose Scented Soaps
Possibly one of my fave DIY’s, making soaps using a melt and pour base was so much easier than I thought. I used some rose scented oils on these and I also made a batch of lavender and lemongrass soaps too. Your home will smell amazing if you make these. Catch the full post here.
Recycle Old Tins Into Succulent Pots
Succulents are so easy to maintain and keep alive. Perfect for the Mammy who forgets to water her plants. Why not have a rummage through the cupboards and see if you can find some old tins and reuse them to plant your succulents. See how I made mine in this post here.
DIY Breakfast Serving Tray
Why not transform an old serving tray into something funkier and then use it to serve your Mammy some breakfast in bed. I transformed this old brown serving tray with some spray paint and marble contact paper. Check out the full post here.
DIY Bath Caddy
You can’t beat a relaxing bubble bath! Late last year I recycled a piece of wood that I had leftover from a project and transformed it into a bath caddy. You can even use wood glue for this DIY and skip the drill if you don’t have one. Catch the full post here.
Love Heart Trinket Dish
I love playing with air dry clay. You can get so creative with it. Why not get some clay and make these easy love heart-shaped trinket dishes. Perfect for storing jewellery or trinkets on the bedside locker. See the post here.
I hope you got some inspiration from today’s post. You can have so much fun making these and you could even make these DIYs with your mam. Let me know if you give them a try. You can share your DIYs with me over on Instagram, I would love to see them.
