I am completely addicted to photo's. They capture our memories as they happen and preserve them forever. These days we tend to keep all our photographs on our laptops, pads or phones and rarely buy actual prints. A good idea for a fab Mothers Day treat for your Mum to display her family photo's is to create a montage to hang on her wall. It is so simple to make and every now and then you can swap the photo's for more recent prints. Great if you are looking for a gift on a budget too.
What You Need:
- Old Picture Frame - The larger the better. I picked mine up from my local charity shop for £4.
- Screw-in eyes - Available from any DIY shop
- Mini craft Pegs - Available from Ebay or a craft shop
- Satin wood or gloss paint
- A selection of 6 x 4 photo prints - Available from Truprint from 5p each.
What You Do:
- Remove the glass & backing from the frame and very carefully dispose of it.
- Give the frame a lick of paint
- Screw in your eyes down both sides of the back of the frame at about 6 inches apart
- Cut & Tie strings and attach them to your eyes (like mini washing lines)
- Using your mini pegs attach your photos to the strings.
- Hang on the wall
Truprint have some lovely personalised gifts for your Mum this Mothers Day, ranging from a photo key ring to a framed canvas. For my Mother-in-law I have chosen a canvas with our four kids and a mini photo book full of family photos from 2014 for her to flick through and see what we got up to last year. Sharing our memories with her will make an extra special gift for her to treasure.
