Get your craft on this Mother’s Day: 5 easy and simple gifts you can make courtesy of Hobbycraft

Posted on March 15, 2022

Ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday 27 March, we have gathered 5 easy and simple gift ideas you can make this year, courtesy of our Hobbycraft store.


Whether you’re the next Picasso, or just like getting your hands dirty with paint, pens and glue, this guide will have you scoring brownie points this Mother’s Day - and for the rest of the year!


Mache Letter Kit


First up is Hobbycraft’s Mache letter Kit – MUM edition. These three letters can be decorated using Mache papers, or you can cover them in gems and glitter, write your own personal messages, or if you’re feeling a bit extra, why don’t you incorporate these Flower Love stickers across all three letters to add a touch of spring to your Mother’s Day gift.




Mother’s Day Card Making


One of the best - and most simple - gifts you can ever create is a card, whether its touchingly personal or over the top with glitter, paint, and flowers. Hobbycraft’s card making kits will have your card outshining everyone else’s this Mother’s Day – did someone mention sibling rivalry?


From Fairy Sparkle paper Flowers to Animal Print Washi tape, you can customise your crafty creation to make a bespoke, personalised card for your mum this year. Why not get the kids involved, and get them to ‘help’ you make a card for Granny? You might even have time for a cuppa while they’re writing their messages inside… 





Flowers, Flowers, and more Flowers.


Flowers can bring a smile to anybody’s face, especially if they’re bright and colourful! To avoid having to see your mother throw her Mother’s Day flowers in the bin this year, why not create some out of cardboard and tissue paper?


With Hobbycraft’s Tissue Paper range you can create the most colourful and extravagant bouquet of flowers– and the best part is, they’ll stick around for much longer than your normal bouquet, and they are much better to the environment in comparison to those fake plastic flowers you could buy.


Or if you’re not keen on creating your own tissue paper flower bouquet, follow this step by step guide on how to create your very own Daffodil bouquet – of course you can switch up the colours to create any flower bouquet you want.



Amigurumi Dolls


Why not think outside the box this Mother’s Day, and make her an Amigurumi Doll of her favourite singer, TV show character, author, or even yourself!

Head to the HobbyCraft website where you can find a step-by-step guide on how to create your perfect crochet person.

Take inspiration from the guide and switch it up with Hobbycraft’s range of colourful yarn.



Scrap book


If you’re feeling nostalgic This Mother’s Day, the How to Make a Better Together Scrapbook guide would make the ultimate thoughtful gift.


Filled to the brim with creative ways to present your memories, write funny quotes, include pictures of the whole family, and draft lists of what to do in the future, this personal touch will be sure to bring a smile to your mother’s face this Mother’s Day.


The best gift you can give is your time, so offering to create the scrapbook together is sure to put a smile on your Mum’s face.
