1. Chic Studded and Painted Tote Bags


Does your mom love weekend trips to the farmers' market or picnics in the park? Turn regular canvas totes into chic weekend bags with studs, paint, and painter's tape.

4. Embroidery Hoop Clocks


Make a wall clock using embroidery hoops, a clock kit, and patterned fabric. We love the idea of making a few for different time zones if your mom's got friends or family living abroad.

13. Chocolate-Covered Amaretto Strawberries


The days of a simple chocolate-covered strawberry are behind us. It's time to fill up those strawberries with creamy Amaretto goodness.

17. Polaroid Tote Bag


It's no secret that all moms love to show off photos of their kids, even if their kids are 35. Take a canvas bag and add iron-on transfers of your mom's favorite photos so she can tote them around wherever she goes.

20. Turn Bootcut Jeans into Skinny Jeans


It's time to teach mom the ways of the skinny jean. Steal a pair of her old school flares and turn them into sizzlin' skinny jeans. Bonus points if you figure out a way to make "mom jeans" cool again.
