Mother’s Day is quite early this year in the UK (March 19th) so there’s no time to waste if you’re looking for gift ideas. I’ve searched up a selection of cute and fun spring-themed craft kits on Etsy that you can either gift to a creative mum, make yourself for a handmade present, or use to plan a crafty afternoon together as a shared experience. All these shops are based in the UK but many ship internationally and/or offer digital downloads.
Craftpod create a range of seasonal boxes with multiple projects for anyone who likes to dabble in different crafts and try new things. There’s 2 spring-themed boxes available with everything you need to make either a felt lamb and embroidered glasses case or a needle book and cross stitch.
Bird watchers will enjoy this felt sewing kit by Polly Chrome Crafts. There’s 8 different British birds to make and then you can turn them into a garland or hanging decorations.
Make a bouquet of felt flowers with a kit from The Handmade Florist. These colourful tulips would brighten up any room but there’s also cherry blossoms, daisies and pastel wreaths.
You might not have tried macrame before but these rainbow macrame kits by Loule Love are a lovely way to give it a go. There’s 2 sizes and lots of different colour options to choose from and you can customise your rainbow further with pom poms.
I finished an Oh Sew Bootiful embroidery kit recently and it turned out really well so I definitely recommend one of their colourful nature designs. I’d also love to try the bargello tapestry wall hanging kits, which all have a cool retro style. Bargello is really easy and quick so ideal for anyone who’s new to needlecrafts.
Punch needle has such a fun fuzzy texture and The Little Cloth Rabbit has some of the cutest punch needle kits around with happy flowers, suns and clouds.
If you can’t make it to a pottery studio, it can come to you! This Home Air-Dry Clay Pottery Kit by Pott’d has all the clay, tools, paint and supplies to make your own unique creations with no wheel or kiln required.
Something very different to finish on – a Kintsugi kit from The Wildest One! Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing ceramics with gold to celebrate the beauty of imperfections. You can use it on items you already own or add a handmade bowl to break and repair.
