We’ve collected 6 fun ideas to bust your stash and do something creative together. Show your love by making something that she’ll cherish.

We know it isn’t practical to plan a big project all for one day, so we’ve picked out 6 fun & easy ideas you could whip up in an afternoon. In addition, they’re pretty great stash-busters. So, you can use extra yarn you have on hand!
For starters, this cute cell phone case, the Pronto Phone Cozy (Crochet). First you’ll want to pick your color palette, based on whatever colors you have available. While exact gauge isn’t important, you’ll want to make sure you’re crafting with your phone size in mind. Another cute accessory to make together are Key Ring Bobbles (Crochet). Not only is it something cute to brighten your mood when you reach for it, but you’ll also have a sweet reminder of your day.
If your mom is a plant person, then she’ll love this Plant Hanger craft! And, if you’re planning to gift her a potted plant, all the better. Bring a skein of super bulky yarn along and whip up this holder together. You could also make something matching! The Warm Heart Cup Cozy (Crochet) could be made in any colors, so get creative.
Lastly, why not try crafting some jewelry! This is an especially fun idea to personalize. Since there’s nothing better than a statement necklace, check out these two fun choices! The Knotted Necklace (Crafts) calls for the Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Ribbon Yarn. Even though the sparkle is fun, you could substitute for any Bulky weight fiber. Finally, the Bobble Necklace (Crochet) is cute on it’s own, but it would also be fun to make a whole set.
