Mother’s Day crafts: dressing table tidy

Looking for Mother’s Day crafts that are both practical and pretty? With an empty Cushelle tissue box, a kitchen roll tube and a few craft stash essentials your kids can create this wonderful dressing table tidy in no time at all. It’ll be the perfect place for Mum to store her bracelets and watch.

Takes about 1.5 hours

What you’ll need

  • Empty Cushelle tissue box
  • Empty Cushelle kitchen roll tube
  • Craft knife 
  • Floral wrapping paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Pretty fabric
  • Ribbon
  1. First, prepare the box by cutting the top away from the empty tissue box. Then cut the sides down by half, all the way round, leaving a shallow box.
  2. Next, place the box on a sheet of wrapping paper and cut a cross-shaped piece to cover the outside base and sides, overlapping along the top edges. Stick in place with glue. Little fingers will love getting involved with this sticky step!
  3. Now for the fabric box lining – we’ve chosen a spotty design. Lay the cotton fabric on your work surface, place the box on top and, again, cut out a cross-shaped piece about the same size as before. Secure the fabric inside the box with a glue stick. Prepare for yet more sticky fingers during this step!
  4. Stick down the ribbon to create a rim around the inside edges of the box.
  5. To make the watch and bracelet holders, first take the kitchen roll tube and carefully cut two pieces to fit across the width of the box.
  6. Next, cut a square of wrapping paper and wrap around one of the kitchen roll pieces. Stick in place with glue. Repeat with a square of spotty fabric and the second kitchen roll tube piece.
  7. Place the tubes side by side in one end of the box. Mum is sure to love her unique desk tidy!

3D heart canvas Mother’s Day crafts

If you’re looking for Mother's Day craft ideas for toddlers, then you’ll love this one. Although you’ll want a responsible adult to take care of the cutting, kids of all ages will love getting involved with the stamping in step 6. 

Takes about 1.5 hours

What you’ll need

  • Empty Cushelle kitchen roll tube
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Paint brush 
  • Paint palette 
  • Stretched canvas
  • Glue
  1. First, flatten the kitchen roll tube and cut a third off the end – save this piece for Step 5.
  2. Next, cut the flattened tube into 1cm-wide pieces.
  3. Paint the inside and outside of the pieces in contrasting colours and leave them to dry. Pink and red are popular choices, but your little ones can choose whatever colours they like best.
  4. Bend the painted pieces into simple heart shapes and glue in a cluster on one section of the canvas.
  5. Cut the remaining kitchen roll tube piece into thirds and bend into heart shapes – these will be used for stamping.
  6. Pour some paint into a palette. Use the three heart-shaped kitchen roll tubes to stamp different coloured hearts on the undecorated section of the canvas and leave to dry. Mum’s heart will soar when she sees all of these sweet hearts from her sweethearts!

Paint splatters are easily wiped up when they’re still wet! Keep a piece of moistened Cushelle kitchen paper handy so the kids can wipe as they go.
