Personalize Anything! by Life as a LEO Wife

If she’s like most moms, she probably saves drawings and written notes from her children or grandchildren. With this idea, you can take any drawing or handwritten note and place them on a blank mug, tumbler, sign, t-shirt, heck, really anything you’d like to! I made a tumbler for my son’s grandmother as a birthday/Mother’s Day gift.

Mother’s Day Door Hanger by Life as a LEO Wife

My mom loved her “Grandkids Welcome (parents by appointment only)” door hanger! Any grandmother will too! It was a hit with the littles too, by the way!

Succulent Planter with a Mama Mug by A Dash of Dee

This is such an easy Mother’s Day gift idea with a succulent from Walmart, a blank mug, and your Cricut. There are tons of free cut files out there that you can add to mugs. Personally, I like to create my own, but not everyone does. Mom can leave the plant in her mug forever or transplant it to a larger flowerpot as it grows and have a mug to drink from (after cleaning it really, really well ha!).

Best Mom Ever Mug by Sugarcoated Housewife

Sugarcoated Housewife came up with four Cricut Mother’s Day gift ideas to fill a basket, including a “Best Mom Ever” mug in addition to a card, socks, and labels for store-bought gifts. Don’t worry if you don’t have a mug press. You can use your iron to transfer the HTV (trust me, I do it!). But this is a good tutorial for those of you who do have one. The socks are super cute too. The vinyl goes on the bottoms of each one and say, “If you can read this,” and “mom is off duty.”

DIY Faux Leather Earrings by Life Sew Savory

What mom doesn’t need a jewelry box full of earrings to match every outfit she has? Emily shared a great tutorial that will help even the jewelry-making newbies (like me!) make fabulous faux leather earrings. She has an additional post on her blog that is full of links to free earring cut files!

DIY Mother’s Day Wordsearch Shadowbox Gift Tutorial by Burton Avenue

Angie created a fabulous, step-by-step tutorial for creating a unique wordsearch shadowbox Mother’s Day gift. You create a design with random letters, then add in the names of her children in the wordsearch. At the top you can add “Mother” or “Mom.” You could also give this to a grandmother by adding in her grandchildren, then swapping in “Grandmother” or “Mimi” or whatever she’s called.

Personalized DIY Photo Keychain by Life as a LEO Wife

These photo keychains are so cute. On the back you can add names, initials, split monograms, etc. on the back. In the tutorial I include a free photo keychain template, an adorable bow template, and more. These are great for Cricut beginners!

DIY Mom T-shirt by Leap of Faith Crafting

Personalized t-shirts have become big since the advent of cutting machines. Amy gives a detailed tutorial for creating a mom design with a free font. You can add the design to a t-shirt, tank top, or even a sweatshirt or hoodie.

Mason Jar Sign with Free Cut Files by Life as a LEO Wife

I love this mason jar sign with 3D paper flowers. It’s in my living room now, and it’s going to be hard to give to my mom! There are two free designs that you can use on your own sign, one specifically for mothers, and free paper flower cut files. I used paint pens to make it, but you can upload the file to Design Space and use vinyl.

Faux Succulent Planter or Tray by Jennifer Maker

If your mom loves plants and greenery, but kills them (lookin’ at myself here), this paper succulent tray is the perfect gift. They look so life-like and are placed on a moss-covered tray. Jennifer gives you the free cut files to use on your own DIY Cricut made Mother’s Day gift!

Mother’s Day Apron Gift by Little Dove Blog

This is a cute gift idea for mothers and grandmothers that love to cook. Just cut their name with “makes everything great” and then let your kids decorate it with fabric markers.

DIY Cricut Tote Bag with Color Changing HTV by Pica’s Printables

Tote bags are great to have on hand to carry all the stuff! Pica made this tote with color changing HTV. What?! I’m going to have to get me some of that! There are tons of free mom cut files out there, so choose one you know she will like, and get to crafting!

Mother’s Day Sign by The Design Hippo

Of course a Mother’s Day gift idea list using your Cricut wouldn’t be complete without a DIY sign. In this post Neema shares four cut files that you can use on a sign for mom. You can of course use any cut file, made by you or downloaded, on a sign. Walmart carries affordable wood blanks as does Dollar Tree now. You can also do a reverse canvas because canvases come with nice wood frames underneath. I have a tutorial for that here. Just add vinyl instead of a mirror. I do have a Cricut reverse canvas project that you can check out, I just used a stencil instead of vinyl.

Cricut Mother’s Day Flower-Topped Gift Box by Artsy Fartsy Mama

My talented friend Lindsay made this adorable gift box that you can make to hold your DIY Cricut Mother’s Day gift. You can coordinate the paper with a DIY card to create the perfect combination. You can’t get that from the store!
