Fancy Breakfast in Bed

Have an old tray lying around the kitchen? Grab it and turn it into a chalkboard art tray! Simply stick some chalkboard vinyl sheets on top of it and your DIY chalkboard tray is ready to roll. Then, make that Mother’s Day breakfast extra special with a sweet message written on your handmade chalkboard tray.

You can use different colors of liquid chalk markers to make your message look funky and fun. To learn more on how to create your own chalkboard art tray, check out this post.

Love in a Mug

Now, this is one of the best DIY Mother’s Day gifts you can create. You can simply prepare a freshly brewed coffee, grab those liquid chalk markers then write a loving message on your handcrafted mug and surprise your mom with the sweet aroma of Arabica coffee beans with a twist. Isn’t it just the best morning wake-up call ever?

Any exhausted mom who had all day taking care of chores would definitely feel refreshed as she reads sweet nothings like “you are the best mom” or a simple “thank you” note while sipping a warm coffee from her special handcrafted mug from her precious one.

Stationery Plate

Didn’t have the time to purchase that fancy gift for Mother’s Day? Or you simply lack that artsy side to create a handmade craft? Worry no more! You can simply create an amazing plate of pancake and get your message across on this special day for moms. Grab those colorful liquid chalk markers and scribble away!

You can place a heartfelt message on the side of the plate or even all around it. So, if your pancakes are not as good as hers, then, your sweet, loving message can make up for it.

Wrap and Post with Love!

Another great idea to make your DIY Mother’s Day gifts extra special is to use a chalkboard paper, adhesive chalkboard contact paper or vinyl sheets. They are versatile and easy to use. Here are some of the favorite crafts I created that made my mom swoon over their uniqueness and the thoughtfulness they expressed. Try them all, they will never fail!

10 Things I love About Mom Box Surprise

Remember when we used to create art projects at school where you put messages in a fishbowl? This is somewhat similar to that. However, instead of using a fishbowl, we will use a small box made of chalkboard vinyl sheets.

You can create your own box or just grab a used box and cover it with adhesive Chalkboard Contact Paper. Then, cut small pieces of paper to put it in the box later. Once your chalkboard box is done, go ahead, grab your liquid chalk markers and write on it. You can put the name of your box such as “Things I Love About Mom”, then, write all those things that you love about your mom and write them one by one on the small pieces of paper you cut and put it inside the box.

Who would not love to read those sweet words of appreciation every single day? Your mom would definitely be teary-eyed every day as she opens a piece of paper that reminds her of how you value all her hard work in taking good care of the family.

Sweet Written Nothings

Chalkboard papers are now the thing! You can simply wrap your gift with a chalkboard paper, grab your colorful liquid chalk markers and write everything you feel about mom. Get all your message across without any space restrictions. But don’t forget to do a finishing touch! Put a ribbon or a flower and stick it to your gift. All moms love that posh finishing touches on everything.


Do you really want to nail it this Mother’s Day? If you do, then Momderwall is the best for you! It’s a wall of everything. The entire family can write cheesy messages on it, post mom’s favorite photos and anything that comes in your mind that you think will give her the ultimate happiness on her special day.

To accomplish this wall of greatness, you will need a Chalkboard Contact paper or Vinyl Sheets. Just stick the chalkboards on the wall, the space you want to cover is entirely based on your preference. And you don’t need to worry about any tears because chalkboard sheets are unimaginably durable. And if you’re not a guru in doing wallpapers, I highly recommend using the Chalkboard Contact papers, they hold strong but you can easily remove and reposition them.

After all the sticky work is done, you can start posting on your Momderwall. Gather the entire family, (which of course should not include mom!) grab the liquid chalk markers and write all the awesome things about mom! You can write “thank you” messages, post funny family photos or that special trip she really enjoyed. You can also post pictures of the best dishes she made and let her know how great of a cook she is. Oh, my mom really loves it when I say I totally devour her food!

So, go ahead, round up the entire family and be one as a team and create the best wallpaper job ever!

With all of these DIY gift ideas, you don’t have to break the bank to make this Mother’s Day an extra special one. All you need is to tap on your artistic side and find the perfect words to express how you feel about mom and let her know that she is the most amazing and loving woman in the world.
