DIY Gifts for Mom

Mother's Day is right around the corner (Sun. May 10, 2015), but there's still time to make a hand-crafted gift. Here are some simple but adorable craft ideas. Supplies, and guidance from our expert designers, available at our Ben Franklin Crafts store in Monroe, WA.

This easy-to-make plaque says it all... HOME IS WHERE MOM IS. All you'll need to make this is the unfinished Washington State Plaque, some paint, and the "HOME IS..." self-adhesive vinyl.

• Choose a bottle.
• Add wire or jute to hang.
• Decorate with beads, glass tiles or seashells.
• Add the feeding tube (fits in most bottle openings).
Come in and we'll help you with your project!

Have you seen these NEW "HANGING VASES"? They're 6" tall and have a hole in the back for hanging. Attach to a plaque like we did here, or it would be pretty in a window with a colorful flower stem! Make this plaque using a 12"x12" unfinished plaque. Paint the borders. Use Mod Podge to glue a 12"x12" sheet of decorative paper. Let dry. Attach your vase!

All the supplies you'll need to make this FAMILY BLOCK SET are included in this kit (except the glue). Easy-to-follow instructions make it fun and quick to make!

The BRACELET BENDER easily shapes metal strips into bracelets. Jewelry makers will love this! Make a unique bracelet for mom for Mother's Day in no time! Come in and we'll show you some ideas.

DIY Chic Mason Jars perfect for Mom! These are very easy to make with the popular Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint by DecoArt and with some Mod Podge. Stop by our store to pick up a project sheet.

Roll the soft clay and press your little ones hand, foot or dog paw into it. Includes clay, frame, roller, & modeling tool.
