I love receiving homemade gifts and I like giving them away. With a lot of research and trail and error I created three DIY’s that are somewhat easy to make and any Mother would love to receive them. I think.
These crafts are budget friendly as almost all the supplies came from the Dollar Store.
MOM FrameThe materials needed:
The first one which is my favourite one and easy to make would fit anyones decor.
Glue the pallets together. I used heavy objects on either side to keep them together. I also glued the wide popsicle sticks on the seam for extra protection. Let it dry for 24 hrs.
Once it cured I applied the stain with a lint free rag. You want to go in the direction of a wood grain.
I let this dry for several hours. It didn’t take long and I only had to apply the one coat
Next I painted the heart. It was white so I could have left it that way but I wanted it light purple. I let it dry for about half hour.
Than I hot glued it to the middle of the bottom of the pallet
Using paper ribbon I made letters M. I measured and cut and remeasured before I glued on. You need four longer ones and four shorter ones for the middle. Make sure you are happy with the way it looks before gluing.
Next at the top of the pallets I hot glued small clothes pins upside down about 2.5 inch apart.
Last thing I did is hot glue the nautical rope so I can hang the frame up. You cut this to the length you want.
Next one game me a bit of trouble but I am including an alternative
