DIY Photo Plaque Mother’s Day Gift
wood lettering or individual letters
hot glue & glue sticks
Paint the wood plaque in your desired color.
Paint the lettering in a contrasting color. I purchased the word family which came in one piece. You can get individual letters that spell mom or grandma if you’d like.
Paint the clothespins to match the lettering.
Apply a top coat if desired.
Allow the paint to fully dry.
Heat up the hot glue gun.
Attach hanging ribbon to the plaque. I glued mine in place and then reinforced with a staple gun.
Evenly space the mini clothespins across the bottom of the plaque and glue into place.
Glue your lettering in place.
Glue the embellishments in place. I used buttons that matched the paint and ribbon.
Attach family photos.
Wrap up this keepsake to give as a special Mother’s Day gift.I’m really pleased with how this turned out. Old photos were clipped onto the plaque, which will bring up many happy memories for Mom. I paired ours with a special Hallmark Signature Mother’s Day card. Walmart is once again featuring a collection of Hallmark Signature cards for Mother’s Day, a line of premium, handcrafted greeting cards. I purchased a card for my mother and my mother in law. I love the card with the attached wooden quote that says Home is where the Mom is. I’d be thrilled if my kids got this card for me.
Hallmark Signature Mother’s Day cards can be picked up in the card aisle at Walmart. Hallmark offers a wide range of greeting cards at Walmart, from seasonal such as Mothers Day and Christmas to special occasions like Birthdays and Graduation.
There are so many possibilities for this photo plaque by varying colors and embellishments. What are you getting or making for the mom in your life this year? Find additional digital coupon offers and Mother’s Day gift inspiration here.
