11 DIY Mother's Day Gifts to Remind Her That You're Her Favorite

Remember in elementary school when Mother’s Day rolled around and we would paint macaroni necklaces or glue macaroni to picture frames or tape macaroni to paper plates to show our moms how much we love them? Well, the holiday is here again and I guess I'll buy my mom something she actually needs, but you should know I have yet to give a gift as personal as that noodle art was.

I have good news though! I found 11 sophisticated Mother's Day DIYs that will put the handmade element back in the holiday without looking like a child's arts and craft project. Hooray!
