Am I the only one who has a hard time coming up with the perfect gift for mom? There is nothing wrong with the typical flowers or chocolate or jewelry but I wanted to get creative this year. And goodness knows our moms who have given us everything deserve even more in return.
I quickly thought of a beautiful sign I saw over on Amy's blog that I wanted to make for myself. So I ran to Michaels to grab the supplies for 2: 1 for my mom and 1 for my mother-in-law.
|Inspiration from The Blissful Bee|
Amy shares a great tutorial but I thought I would break down my process for you as well.
I bought 2 wooden frames, 2 wooden letters, a pack of burlap board (comes with 3), decorative burlap flowers, sponge brushes, lavender ribbon and craft paint. I grabbed a few different shades of yellow and you can see that the darker one was a bad choice. But its all about trial and error until you are happy with it.
|I got to this point and I knew something was missing. I couldn't find the decorative pieces from the inspiration pic so I had to find something else. I ran to A.C.Moore the next day and found just the thing.|
|I got home and repainted the frame. I bet you like my fancy set up with the trash bag and all ;)|
|Here is the finished product!! I had to see how it looks on my teal door since I now have some supplies to make my own. I probably will switch the colors though.|
|Oh and I finally got the "H" doormat that matches the "H"door sign! Not sure whats up with all of the leaves....|
|And then I gave my mama hers!!|
What do you think about a door sign as opposed to a wreath?? What did you give your mom for Mother's Day?
