6 DIY Wood Gift Ideas That Mom Will Love (And Actually Use)

It's time to celebrate the mom in your life. Are you stuck with another year of choosing between scented candles or a coffee mug? We think that Mom deserves something a little more this year. Give something from the heart and create a gift with HART! With the help of six of our amazing HART Ambassadors, we have six DIY Mother's Day gifts that will be sure to make her say "wow!"


Your mom's house is always decorated beautifully, but she deserves her porch to have the same attention to design. We partnered with Nicole Kerns of @hillhousediaries to create this planter box that will look perfect on any front porch. Fill it with her favorite plants or flowers to make this gift extra-special!


Maybe you'd prefer to give mom something she can admire from her window every morning. This window planter from @homemaker_mama, April Grill, will make her think of you and smile every time she looks outside. For that extra special touch, plant seeds of her favorite flowers to give her a gift that keeps on giving.


Is your mom a bookworm? How about the loved ones in her life? Build her this floating bookshelf from our friend Kayla Cummings of @KaylaCummingsHome, so she can show off what she's been reading! Whether it's the latest novel from her favorite author or a classic children's book, we think they'll look perfect on this chic shelf! 


Being a mom is a job in itself. So give the special mom(s) in your life the gift of some much-needed R&R. We partnered with Laura Knapp from @knapptime_crafts to create this bath tray that's the perfect accouterment for that little slice of heaven. With space for a glass of her favorite vino, and a spot to hold a great book, this gift sounds heavenly, right? Just don't forget the wine!


Thinking about getting your mom another family picture this year? Step it up a notch with this picture ledge from Astra Spanbauer of @redbrickfauxfarmhouse! The perfect space to show off years of memories in one place, this picture ledge will make a beautiful addition to any part of her home!


Too much jewelry, but not enough space? That sounds like a good problem to have! Mariah Tapia from @RusticRoseHomestead created this jewelry stand that is as beautiful on her nightstand as all the jewelry is on your mom. If you choose to add a new pair of earrings, we doubt she'll mind.

So, which project did you decide to build? Post your project pictures and tag us, #DoItWithHART. And to the mothers out there: Happy Mother's Day from all of us at HART.
