Luckily, there are plenty of do-it-yourself gifts that will take little time, little effort, and guaranteed make mothers cry tears of joy.

-wooden frame

To make this, simply paint the wood with the chalkboard paint and wait for it to dry. The board can be customized with stickers, paint, or drawings. Top it off by adding a message with some colorful chalk and give it to your mom on May 13th.

jewelry box will show off your useful craft skills. You will need:
