My mother has been slowly decorating her new place and it's looking pretty nice. I found this idea, on where else, Pinterest.
I bought a wooden frame from the store that was thick enough. It was only around 5 dollars. My problem was that the wood it was made out of was incredibly thick and sturdy and I couldn't screw the hooks into it. I own very few tools so I had to improvise and I used the stick on plastic hooks.
I painted it all and framed a cursive initial on scrapbook paper. My mother loved it.
Mr. P's grandmother is a plant/garden type of lady. I've made the yarn covered jars/cans a few months ago and decided to try a coffee can this time for a planter. I trimed it with a nice thick yarn, the base is a very pretty speckled scrap paper I got at the craft store. I also painted the top of the can in a neutral shade to match. I also "sealed" the yarn by covering extra layers of modge podge. This won't make it water proof but will make it hold up better. I decided initials were a nice touch to the gifts.
Happy Mother's Day!
