My inspiration for this post is a sweet little gift that my daughter made for me this mother’s day . . . well, with a lot of daddy’s help (she’s only one and a half.)
I instantly knew that I would frame the little hand print cutely and add it to Lily’s photo wall in her room. Her photo wall was much inspired by several cute things I found on pinterest a while back like this framed birthday details collage and yarn wrapped letters:
Here are my versions:
Here is her photo gallery before the framed hand print was added:
Thankfully this framing project was something I could whip up with things I already had on hand. I do have a stash of frames in the garage. Most are filled with pictures from eons ago that I need to update. I found a white frame at the bottom of the bin. YAY! I just used some scrapbook paper from another project, trimmed it with some scallop shears and popped it into the frame.
Here is a closer look at the scallop detail. Just a cheapie pack of scallop scissors from Michael’s that I got a while back.
Here is the hand print framed and joining the photo gallery:
I needed to balance the wall out a bit so I added a little bird house that I made from scratch. Just kidding. It was a pre-made one from Michael’s that I painted a while back while I was pregnant.
Anyway, so I used my trusty Command adhesive strips to mount the bird house and the framed hand print. . . and I think the wall is finally complete. By the way, Command strips are a must when you are a renter.
So there you have it. What an inspiring Mother’s Day gift.
Until next Monday,
