There’s no better way to celebrate your favorite woman (MOM!) and show her you care than with a lovely homemade gift on Mother’s Day. This year, we’re encouraging you to get creative and turn your customized photo coloring pages into brilliant coloring crafts. From DIY planters to adorable keychains to simple keepsake boxes, we’ve gathered 11 unique coloring gift ideas your mom will love and cherish. Start here by turning your favorite family photos into coloring pages, then color and DIY away!
1. Coloring Coasters
Here’s a DIY that’s simple to make and perfect for displaying your photo coloring pages–all while saving mom’s coffee table from pesky water rings! Don’t forget to coat the coasters with water-resistant decoupage to prevent the ink from running and paper from puckering.
2. Crafty Bookmarks
These adorable bookmarks would make an excellent gift for any book-loving mom or grandma. We suggest coloring your customized photo pages in a more realistic style and then finishing it off with colorful ribbon or yarn.
3. Easy-to-Make Planters
Gift mom her favorite succulent or flower in a fun, personalized DIY planter. All you need to get started are a few crafting supplies, a photo coloring page of you and your mom, and a metal tin can.
4. DIY Photo Book
This DIY project is perfect for turning your favorite family moments into a heartfelt Mother’s Day photo book. Get the little ones involved too—their pages may not be perfect, but it’s the thought that counts!
5. Coloring Page Playing Cards
Turn a deck of playing cards into a super cute set to give mom on Mother’s Day. We suggest using one of our pattern coloring pages for the number cards and family photo coloring pages for the face cards (your mom’s photo saved for the queen card, of course!).
6. Simple Keepsake Box
Craft a sentimental keepsake box and decoupage your favorite photo over the top of the lid. Once you’re finished, fill it with meaningful items that will bring your mom fond memories from throughout the years. (And don’t forget to leave space for her to add new ones, too!)
7. Customized Photo Cube
Turn your favorite family photos into coloring pages, print ‘em, color ‘em, and stick them on this easy-to-make photo cube so that mom has lasting memories for years to come.
8. 3D Mother's Day Card
If you’ve already purchased a store-bought gift, pair it with a sweet, handmade Mother’s Day card with this easy tutorial. Use your photo coloring page as the background and our “Heterogeneous Hearts” as the pop-up elements. (We’re also huge fans of embellishing cards with washi tape for projects like this!).
9. Personalized Candles
Show off pictures of your mom’s favorite people with a collection of candles by displaying the photos on the front. For any extra candles you have, you can also add soothing quotes from our mantra coloring pages—these would make a great gift for any occasion!
10. DIY Keychains
Thoughtful gifts make the best Mother Day’s gifts, like this crafty DIY keychain featuring photos of your little ones. We suggest printing out your customized coloring page out on shrink film rather than tracing the outlines—this will make the DIY process a bit easier.
