Looking for unique DIY gift ideas for mom? Create a beautiful paper flower picture frame to display your favorite photo. It would make a perfect Mother’s Day or birthday gift!
Hello, all! It’s Lydi back from Lydi Out Loud and now that it finally feels like spring I want to paper flower all the things! Have you ever made them before? They’re amazingly easy to make with a Cricut or other cutting machine or you can even find templates online that you can cut out for the same affect. When thinking of DIY gift ideas for mom for Mother’s Day, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make some paper flowers!
I’ve had this Darice unfinished wood frame for awhile waiting for inspiration for the perfect project and this paper flower picture frame was just the ticket.
DIY Gift Ideas for Mom Paper Flower Frame Supplies:
- Darice Unfinished Wood Frame
- White Chalky Finish Paint
- Paint Brush
- Cricut Machine and Paper Flower Cut File (Or online template to print and cut with scissors.)
- Darice Assorted Colored Cardstock
- Tacky Glue
- Hot Glue or Super Glue (Not pictured)
Paint the unfinished wood frame with white chalky finish paint (or the color of your choice). I love using chalky finish paint for a variety of projects, but especially unfinished wood because you don’t have to do any prep (win!) and it covers effortlessly with usually just 1 coat (win win!)
Now your paper flower picture frame is ready to display your favorite picture or grab this free Mother’s Day printable from my blog here to make a beautiful Mother’s Day gift for mom!
