Mother's Day Art!
Here is what I used.
1 piece of scrapbook paper
the back piece of cardboard off of the scrapbook paper collection
scrap fabric in green for stems and leaves
a sturdy square piece of fabric, a little larger then you scrapbook paper, canvas or denim will work well
old baby onesie
Scrap piece of burlap (permanent marker for writing the year)
I traced the hands of my two sons onto the back side of the onesie fabric, then cut the hands out with scissors. I first hot glued the twine to the canvas for hanging. Then I hot glued the cardboard and next the pretty paper down. Then I glued the hands, stems, and leaves (easy enough no pattern was needed), and the year down with more hot glue.
Super easy and will be a treasured keepsake I am sure for years to come.
Well I have shared my Mother's day gifts for this year, I might be ruining the surprise if either one checks my blog, but I wanted to share these fun projects before the holiday is here.
Happy Mother's Day Mommies!
