As a mother there is no amount of money that can buy you a gift so cherished as one made by your child. This little DIY mothers day frame is really sweet and straightforward to make and it looks great at home or on an office desk. So why not share the love this mothers day with this easy DIY craft.
You will need
Paint and paintbrush
4 thick popsicle sticks
White and Coloured Paper
Glue gun/strong glue
Start off by painting your popsicle sticks in your chosen colours. We used light pink and light purple. When you’ve finished, pop your sticks aside to dry.
Whilst your sticks are drying you can make the decorations for your frame. To make the hearts put two coloured pieces of paper together and cut a heart shape out of them. cutting both at the same time will give you two equal size and shape hearts. Fold both your hearts In half. Glue one half of one heart to one half of the other. This should give you the t shape that you can see above. You’ll need to make two of these.
To make the daisies, cut out a white flower and then glue a yellow circle in the centre. You’ll need two daisies.
Once your sticks are dry glue them into a square as you can see above.
Add your little handmade decorations to the corners and optionally write a message on your frame. finish off your frame by cutting out a picture and gluing it to the back of your frame. Now all thats left is to do is gift your creation to a special someone!
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
