Make A Flower Frame

I created this spring flower frame this week and I have to say I love how it turned out with the bright colours. It reminded me of the fun I used to have scrapbooking when a layout would come together just beautifully when the right colours were used. With Mother's Day around the corner and the end of the school year coming soon, that would make an excellent handmade gift.
This is not a difficult project and would be great for kids who love to paint and glue. Here are the supplies you will need:

Project Supplies:
-1 wooden & unpainted frame {I found mine at Micheal's for $1.50}
-craft paint
-foam brush
-assorted flowers made using a flower punch and cardstock scraps
-assorted buttons
- a bottle of Mod Podge in matte
Step 1. Paint the front & sides of frame green with foam brush. Let dry. Apply second coat if necessary. Let dry.
Step 2. Cover the painted frame with mod podge and add flowers in a random pattern.
Step. 3. Continue covering frame with flowers until completely covered. Add buttons with mod podge. Cover flowers and buttons with a second coat of mod podge to seal. Let dry.
Step 4. Once frame is completely covered, add picture.
This would make a great project to do with a group of children, or girlfriends. I think it would also make a great wedding favor idea too.

If you are looking for some other homemade gift ideas, you could try making strawberry butter, strawberry lemonade mix, iced cappuccino mix, chai tea latter mix,  or a honey lavender sugar scrub.
