When’s the last time you told Mom how much you love her? There’s no better way than a present! Actually there is (hugs, etc.), but… if you can make her a fabulous gift that comes from the heart and reflects the time you’ve spent together having a laugh or learning an important life lesson, it can be almost as meaningful. We’ve got 3 DIY holiday gift ideas that are sure to make mom feel the love.


1) Oven Mitt

By any chance, did Mom teach you how to sew? Or, have you been taking sewing classes and want to show off your skills? What better way to share your talent with Mom than to create something for her from scratch! Whip up this lovely holiday-themed oven mitt that’s useful, practical, and full of the spirit of the season. Get the crafty details from Skip to My Lou.
