Generally the best way to inform a friend of anything is for you to be polite, but direct. Some people can't take hints that you provide, so you could lie with something such as "My aunt is staying over for the week, and my mom asked you not come over".

Your actions need to back up your words. If your friend comes by on Monday, when the visit is over suggest they come back on Thursday. If they come back before then, open the door, say, "I'll see you on Thursday," and then shut the door.
