Mother’s Day 2018 is around the corner and Keep Texas Beautiful has some great ways to show mom just how much you care.

KTB has compiled some of our favorite DIY gifts perfect for the occasion!

1. Scrabble Picture Frame

Making an old Scrabble game into a gift makes great use of recycled materials and is a creative way to show mom how much you care. Take any words that best describe mom, line them up, and glue them into a picture frame. This DIY craft is a perfect way to show mom she’s appreciated and will be a daily reminder of her kids and how much they love her.

Painting the wooden tiles is a special touch, adding color and a vibrant look to the craft! Writing a sweet note on the back makes the gift even more personal and can be looked back on for years to come.

2. 52 Things We love About You

This craft uses an old deck of cards and binder rings to create a thoughtful and fun gift. Reminding mom of all the things she does for us is a way to give the greatest Mother’s Day gift. The best part about this craft is that kids of any age can come up with reasons why they love mom; 52 reason to be exact. Be original and then glue each reason onto a card, bind them together and you have a small book of all the ways you love your mom!
