Our mothers have literally been there for us since day one. While we only have one day each year dedicated to celebrating them, we think the appreciation should extend throughout the entire year! This magnetic Mother’s Day DIY gift is the perfect way to impress mom.

DIY Changeable Magnetic Lampshade

Since you’ll want your Mother’s Day appreciation to spread across the whole year, you’ll want to make this gift changeable to fit multiple seasons, holidays, and events. These DIY lampshade accessories will spruce up your mom’s living room all year round!

What You Will Need

  • 3mm x 1mm disc magnets
  • Plain lamp shade
  • Hot glue gun
  • Dollar store or craft store flowers, accessories, and other decorations
    • We recommend bats for Halloween, Santa and holly leaves for Christmas, heart decals for Valentine’s Day, and American flags for the 4th of July, or whatever your mom loves!


This DIY is as easy as your mom’s tasty homemade pie! Grab your accessories (we’re thinking some spring-themed flowers and butterflies) and your magnets. Heat up your hot glue gun ahead of time so it’s ready to go when you are. Start gluing your accessories and craft store decorations to the backs of the disc magnets. Leave them ample time to dry so the glue can set.

Once the glue has dried and all of your accessories are secured to the magnets, grab those and extra disc magnets. On your new lampshade, start arranging your accessories how you want them, being sure to secure them with the disc magnets on the other side of the lamp shade.

This is the perfect DIY for moms who love to keep their homes decorated for each holiday and new season! For more fun magnetic DIY’s be sure to check out our blog and be sure to check out our online catalog to see our newest and coolest products.
