Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Make mom feel extra special this year with one of these thoughtful, beautiful hand made gifts. For the older kids I’ve included some multi-step artistic projects which can be modified for younger children (or made with a little help from older siblings and dads ?
These shabby chic picture frames are inexpensive to make and the finished product is lovelier than any frames I’ve seen in stores. Kids can even choose their own favorite pictures of themselves for mom.
