Unique Framing Gift Ideas for Mother's Day
It's almost here. Mother's Day is just around the corner, and that means it is time to appreciate Mom! What could be a better way to do that than by giving her something she'll adore--a picture framed by you. So, this year, why not go ahead and give her something right from the heart? She'll remember it for years to come.
Framed Scrapbook Pages
Whether your mom scrapbooks or not, this is a simple and meaningful idea that you can make to show your appreciation for her. Choose an important event from your mom's life or a great memory you might have together, and take the time to create a scrapbook page and then frame it so she can display it wherever she'd like. If she has a collection of scrapbooking pages already, you can always frame some of them for her.
Creative Wood Frame Ideas
If you're creatively inclined, you could always make a frame. One of the easiest types of frames to make yourself is a basic wood frame. Just take any long, thin pieces of wood and bind them together at the corners with wood glue. You don't have to use nails either, making this a great craft idea to do with younger children. The fun is selecting the frame material. Does mom like to paint? Try taking four paint brushes and binding them together with glue or string. Or, take four paint stirrers and frame your photo using wire or rope to bind them together. This idea gives you the freedom to tailor a frame perfectly to your mom's taste.
Crafty Frame Ideas
If your mom is crafty and you are also inclined in the art of crafting, try expanding your repertoire. Take a plain wood frame and turn it into something spectacular. Add anything that your mom adores and symbolizes her love and caring nature. Attach silverware to the wood frame, or add sewing materials like a thimble, bobbin, thread and fabric. Get creative. If you mom loves to cook, add small baking items. Does she love to knit? Add knitting yarn. Or you can even make a shadow box that embodies her hobbies, mementos from a special trip or your favorite family pictures. Taking time to reflect on her favorite things with something you made will make her feel cherished.
No matter your age, there's always materials to be framed that a mother would love to get this Mother's Day. Recent college graduate? Frame your graduation announcement. Are you a good writer? Frame a hand-written note that is sure to make her cry. Have a child of your own? Frame their artwork to give to grandma. Taking the time to put together a meaningful gift doesn't take a lot of time, but will have a big impact.
