Mother’s Day // DIY Creation

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! What do you have planned to celebrate the person who loves you most? Sometimes, a store-bought card just isn’t enough to say the words you want to say, so here’s a Do-It-Yourself project that will be ready before Sunday comes around.

I made this for my mom last year for Mother’s Day. It’s really simple to make and is super cute. I also made one for my Grandmom, because she’s a mother, too!

Things needed for this project:

  • A small sized canvas (approx. 3” by 3”)
  • Non-perishable flowers
  • Colored paper
  • Markers
  • Mini clothespin
  • Hot glue gun
  • Acrylic paint
  • Craft glue
  • Sparkles or mini pearl beads (optional)
  • A mini easel or canvas stand (optional)

All of these things can be found at any craft store like Michaels or A.C. Moore.

  • Paint your blank canvas your mom’s favorite color or colors. Let dry.
  • Add a sparkly or pearly border to your canvas with craft glue.
  • Hot glue flowers to your canvas.
  • Hot glue mini clothespin to canvas.
  • Cut out and write on colored paper, then apply to canvas with craft glue.
  • Set canvas on mini easel.
  • (Don’t forget to write your name and the year on the back.)

Mission Complete!

You can choose to put it on a stand or hang it on the wall, whatever you choose. The (out of focus) photo below shows one that I covered completely in flowers. It didn’t quite turn out the way I had imagined, but I think it’s still unique.
