Cricut Gifts for Mom
Today I’m sharing 6 DIY Mother’s Day Cricut Gift Ideas From The Dollar Store. These Mother’s Day gift ideas are easy to DIY using Dollar Store supplies and a little help with a Cricut machine. I love making personalized Mother’s Day gifts and this year I came up with several DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas. These Mother’s Day Cricut projects are easy enough for a Cricut beginner to make using simple materials.
This post was first posted on May 5, 2019.
I have a Cricut Access Membership, which provides me with thousands of free images to come up with some Mother’s Day Cricut ideas. Be sure to check Cricut Design Space for some free Mother’s Day Cricut cards! Some of these Mother’s Day Cricut DIY projects can even be Mother’s Day Cricut projects to sell. These Mother’s Day Cricut crafts make cute gifts for grandma too!
All of the projects below include a Free Mother’s Day Cricut SVG (it’s actually the Cricut Design Space Make-It-Now Link to make it even easier for you!). Keep reading and watch the How-To videos to see how to make some thoughtful Mother’s Day Cricut DIY gifts!

I show you how to make most of the Mother’s Day DIY gifts below using a Cricut machine. If you don’t have a Cricut machine, you can still make similar Mother’s Day gifts using stickers, stencils, or premade iron-on images found at Dollar Tree or your local craft store. Making personalized Mother’s Day gifts with Cricut is a great beginner Cricut project if you are new to Cricut.
What is Cricut Design Space?
Cricut Design Space is the program you will need to design and cut your Cricut projects. When you set up your Cricut machine, you will need to install Cricut Design Space. All Cricut machines come with Design Space, their free, easy-to-learn design software. It’s cloud-based so you can access your files from any device, any time. Start on your phone, continue on your laptop, and even work offline – all without breaking stride. From there you have the option to arrange a design from scratch or select from thousands of ready-to-make projects. Place your material on a mat, load it in the machine, and press Go. The machine handles the rest.
Design Space features tons of ideas to kickstart your next masterpiece. Browse and play with thousands of images, fonts, and ready-to-make projects. Since Cricut is adding more all the time, you’ll always find something fresh, new, and inspiring.
Do you need a computer to use a Cricut machine?
A computer is recommended, however, you can access Cricut Design Space and a Cricut Explore Air machine through mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, and Android devices). I highly recommend using a computer with Cricut Design Space and a Cricut Machine because you will have the full design options in Design Space and your machine needs to be close by to cut (even if you are using wireless Bluetooth).
What is Cricut Access?
You may have seen or heard about Cricut Access from Cricut or another blogger. Cricut Access is a membership that gives you 10% off your Cricut purchases (and various other offers and discounts) and access to thousands of images and fonts in Cricut Design Space.
I have a Cricut Access Membership, which provides me with thousands of free images to come up with some Cricut craft ideas. Be sure to check Cricut Design Space for some free Cricut projects! Some of the free Cricut DIY projects in Cricut Design Space can be used to sell (which makes the membership fee worth it in my opinion!).
Making personalized gifts, cards, home decor, farmhouse signs, and more is easy with a Cricut Explore Machine.
Learning how to use your Cricut is really easy and fun once you get the hang of it. If you don’t have a Cricut Access Membership, I highly recommend it. I’ve had a Cricut Access Membership for years and it’s definitely worth the cost for all the benefits!
My favorite online resource to find SVG files to make Cricut craft projects is DesignBundles.net!
Be sure to subscribe to get my emails and updates with more free SVG files to use with your Cricut machine!
I used supplies from Dollar Tree to make all of these projects. These Mother’s Day DIY projects cost less than $5 to make your own by using supplies from dollar stores!
I highly suggest using a Cricut Explore cutting machine to make these projects. Just access the Cricut Design Space Make-It-Now Link in my private Library to make these projects in REAL-TIME from your mobile device or computer!

$3 Wooden Farmhouse Tray DIY
This $3 DIY farmhouse tray turned out so good! It’s going to look great hanging on the wall (like a sign) when not in use! This DIY farmhouse Tray would make a cute last-minute Mother’s Day gift
Funny story, my hubby came home and saw this farmhouse tray in our kitchen and seriously thought I bought it. I told him I made it and cut the wood myself… and he was shocked! He bought me a hand saw for Christmas bc I usually ask him to cut everything for me with his electric saw (I’m not 100% confident using his machines solo…yet) and this was my first time using the hand saw.
This DIY Farmhouse Tray was only $3 and 1 hour to make (including dry time) if you use a hand saw as I did.
- Large (5 gallons) paint sticks (I used 9 total sticks)
- Rope from
- Briar smoke wood stain
- Aleene’s tacky glue
- I recommend a staple gun too
I added a decal to mine too (using my Cricut!)

What Cricut Accessories Do I Need?
Cricut Essentials make putting the pieces together a joy. From tweezers that handle delicate parts to Cricut EasyPress for foolproof iron-on, every Essential makes a great project even greater, every step of the way.
These are the Cricut Tools & Accessories I recommend for the serious crafter:
Cricut Easy Press
I highly recommend purchasing the Cricut Easy Press if you plan to do any iron-on or heat transfer projects. The Cricut Easy Press will make your Cricut DIY’s so much easier!
The Cricut Easy Press comes in 3 different sizes, however, I own the 9 x 9 and it’s the perfect size for most projects.
Cricut Easy Press Mat
If you purchase the Cricut Easy Press, don’t forget to get the coordinating Easy Press Mat, which will protect your surfaces and projects from burning. Alternatively, you can use a folded towel, however, the mat is sleek and easier to store in the craft room 😉
Cricut Bright Pad
The lightweight, low-profile Cricut BrightPad makes crafting easier while reducing eye strain. It illuminates fine lines for tracing, cut lines for weeding, and more.
Cricut Cutting Mats
I suggest having a variety of cutting mats that are customized to match the weight of commonly used crafting materials. With three different mats specifically designed to work with different weights of materials, you can ensure success in all your projects.
Cricut Tool Set
You will thank me later for telling you to just get the Cricut Tool Set instead of buying each tool individually! The tools included in the Cricut toolset are all helpful when using your Cricut machine.
My favorite non-Cricut brand materials
You can find other brand vinyl, iron-on, contact paper, and more outside of Cricut.com. A few of my favorites are:
- Oracal 651 Permanent Vinyl (find it here or at your local craft store)
- Siser HTV
- Dollar Tree clear contact paper (or shelf liner)
- Various fat-quarter fabrics at Walmart
- Felt sheets at local craft stores

How To Choose a Cricut Machine
I bought my first Cricut machine in 2013… it was called the Cricut mini and was one of the first Cricut machines that didn’t have a keyboard. It was a great machine but as soon as Cricut released the Cricut Explore machine in 2014, I quickly bought it. A year later Cricut released the Cricut Explore Air and I bought that too. Then in 2017, Cricut released the Cricut Maker Machine and of course I bought it too. So you can say I’m pretty experienced with Cricut machines and have in-depth knowledge about using Cricut and various Cricut projects.

How To Save Money on Cricut Supplies
I love finding a good deal on Cricut vinyl craft supplies and I tend to stock up on Cricut craft supplies during sales (Cricut.com has the best Black Friday sale!) but Cricut supplies can be expensive! One question I’m frequently asked is where can I buy Cricut supplies? Well, not only will I share where you can buy Cricut supplies, but where to find discount Cricut supplies!
