Mother's Day Frame

Mother's Day is this weekend! Can you believe it? It seems like Easter was just last weekend!
I put these frames together for all the Mom's, Grandma's, Noanie's and Grammy's in our life. Between my husband and I our girls have five Grandma's and one Great-Grandma. Wowza!

All you need is:
wooden frame (from Michael's $1)
Mod Podge
Scrapbook paper
embellishments of your choice

I realize we're cutting it really close to Mother's Day and this is a great home made gift for those last minute ladies. You can make this cute frame in an afternoon with no problem. First I used white craft paint to paint the edges of the frame to give it a little more finished look. After the paint dried, I traced the frame onto my scrapbook paper and cut it out. Next apply the paper with Mod Podge, wait to dry, sand the edges, apply another thin coat of Mod Podge. Lastly I applied my flowers & buttons with a little hot glue and "love" with just a little more Mod Podge. And here they are!


  1. I love all of the pix and frames, but I truly love the one you gave me the best!!''

    Furthermore, it was so much fun to see all of your pictures of where you grew up, this week-end. You can never go back, to what and who you were, but you can enjoy trying! Not surprised the girls loved it! Love, Grammy
