Handmade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas On A Budget 

If you landed on this page during your search for Mother’s day gift ideas, looking for a quick, affordable DIY project – you can stop searching!

If you can’t afford to spend a lot on your gift for Mother’s day, you can make something personalised. We bet your Mum will appreciate a hand made present, that shows your time and effort went into making it, much more than something store-bought that thousands of other mums will be opening…

Instead of the regular bunch of flowers from the local supermarket, make a personalised hand-painted pot and add some spring bulbs or a beautiful plant that will show your love for more than a few days!

Painting your plant pots is so quick and easy. All you need to do is lay out some newspaper on your workstation – or take advantage of the glorious spring sunshine and set up on your patio or balcony. Now dip your paint brush in your chosen chalk paint colour and start painting!

If you don’t want to paint the whole pot one colour, here are some fun artistic ideas:

  • Pinstripes
  • Swirly circles
  • Floral design
  • Mermaid tail pattern
  • Polka dots

The more intricate your design, the smaller the paint brush needs to be.
