Mother’s Day is right around the corner; if you’re struggling with gift ideas, here are some simple suggestions for a heartfelt handmade item that are sure to make mom feel special.
- Initial it. Pick up a wooden letter at your local craft store and paint the outside with your color of choice. Decorate the front with a collage of sentimental photos. Adhere them with a layer of Mod Podge and you’ve got a custom made monogram that mom will treasure for years.
- Frame it. Take an old picture frame and transform it into a chic chalkboard. This can be achieved easily with some inexpensive chalkboard spray, available in the paint aisle. Simply spray over the glass; once dry, you can easily in script your personalized Mother’s Day message!
- Think outside of the box. Make wonderful wall art for mom out of shoebox lids and some fun fabric. Iron the material, wrap it tight around the lid, then fasten the fabric to the underside with strong tape or staples. Make one or several to create fun filler for empty wall space.
