Simple Craft Ideas For Mother’s Day

Sykes Cottages Craft Guide
Crafting isn’t difficult, but for newbies, it can feel a little overwhelming when you’re first starting out. With so many tools, materials and resources available, it’s easy to assume that crafting is an expensive, difficult and time-consuming hobby, but this isn’t the case. With the right help and advice, anyone can try their hand at this timeless and worthwhile pastime; and before long, you’ll be creating crafts to be proud of.
To inspire would-be crafters to have a go, Sykes Cottages have created an illustrated craft guide designed specifically for beginners. Sykes Cottages Simple Crafts: A Guide for Beginners features six easy to follow craft tutorials that can be completed in just a few simple steps. And, because each tutorial requires little to no specialist equipment, they’re inexpensive to make too.
With Mother’s Day just weeks away, now’s the perfect time to get creative and come up with a DIY gift that’ll sweep mum off her feet come the big day. Sykes’ craft guide has lots of Mother’s Day gift inspiration, including handmade scented candles, bespoke wirework earrings and a pretty crocheted tablet cover – all of which would make the perfect Mother’s Day treat or a special keepsake just for you.
Each of the crafts featured in the guide was contributed by a UK craft blogger, and were designed to be both simple and inexpensive to make at home, or during a moment of downtime on holiday. As the half term is upon us, wouldn’t it be great for you and the kids to get creative and craft something really special together?
