There are plenty of gorgeous gifts that you can make with yarn for Mother’s Day that won’t take weeks and weeks of hard work. Knitting an entire sweater or crocheting a throw pillow will be difficult tasks to squeeze into your schedule, which is why you should try to put together the following handcrafted presents for your mom.
Before you even get started on the craft for your mom, you will need to stock up on yarn — you don’t want to be half-way through your project and realize you have run out of your most important material. You can get a deal and buy your yarn online and then have it delivered to your front door within days — this means that you can skip the long drive, avoid slow lines and save more money in just a few clicks. The website Yarnspirations carries an incredible range of yarn colors, fibers, weights and brands so that you can find the exact material that you need.
- Spa Kit:
The website also offers free knit and crochet patterns that can help crafters of any skill level. For instance, you can follow patterns for bath mitts and facecloths so that you can put together a lovely spa kit for your mom to have a soothing day. You can also make homemade bath salts or bath bombs with essential oils for the ultimate relaxation experience — if you don’t feel like creating these items at home, you can buy specialty options from the store.
- String Art:
This craft uses a few simple materials to make a colorful design in whatever shape you prefer — some of the most popular choices are hearts, flowers, stars and letters. All you have to do for a string craft is get a flat wooden board, trace the desired shape on the surface and then hammer in nails along the outline, making sure to leave gaps in between each nail. Tie a very long piece of yarn around one of the nail heads and then wind it through and across the outline until the shape is filled out.
- Wrapped Vase:
This is an easy craft that you can whip up on your own, or that you can put together with your kids. All you will need is colorful yarn, scissors, glue, embellishments and a simple vase — mason jars or glass cylinders will also work if you can’t find the right vase. Add dots of glue along a clean and dry vase, and then wrap the yarn around the glass until it creates a smooth pattern. Don’t forget to fill your cozy crafted vase with real blooms when you are done or make several pom pom flowers with your leftover yarn as a finishing touch.
You won’t have to stress about whether you’ll have enough time to complete your simple spa kit, your string art piece or your wrapped vase. These fantastic presents will be finished in a flash so that you can tie them with ribbon, sign a card and be ready to impress when Mother’s Day arrives.
