Are you a mom? Our day of recognition, Mother’s Day, is just a few days away! How do you celebrate? Do you have any family traditions for your special day? In my house, the kids give me a card their dad bought for them to sign. Then I usually relax and enjoy spending time with my family. Sometimes my husband cooks, and sometimes we go out. I must admit, even though the kids are older, I still enjoy getting something cute they made me.
In my opinion, on Mother’s Day, there is nothing Moms love more than a handmade gift from the kids. Even if our kids are not a crafting prodigy, we love whatever they make us, right? That’s ok! They don’t have to be the next Martha Stewart to make an amazing custom gift Mom will love. How better to celebrate Mom than by spelling Mom out with beautiful DIY Decorative Scrapbook Covered Wooden Letters?
Wouldn’t these DIY Decorative Scrapbook Covered Wooden Letters look great on her desk or on a shelf in her home? This is a great project for kids over 10 or for Dads to do with the younger kids. It’s easy for anyone to do and doesn’t involve much prep or cleanup! Most moms have a pretty hefty craft supply collection, right? If you don’t already have most of the supplies at home, dad and the kids can make a quick run to the craft store.
Before they head out, A run to your local craft supply store will be in order along with the knowledge of what Mom likes. Does she like flowers? Maybe she’s more of a fan of stripes? Keep this in mind while you’re shopping so you don’t get back home with a bunch of random items that don’t work together. All you need is some lovely scrapbook paper and adorable embellishments. You’ll be able to create a one of a kind masterpiece that Mom will be happy to show off to guests for years to come.
