Mom is Wow Mother's Day PrintableHi friends! It’s Malia from Malia Creative here to share a simple and fun hand lettering tutorial and printable for Mother’s Day, with the quote, “MOM is WOW upside down.”

A Mother’s Day Printable is so easy, you hardly have to do anything. It’s like a personalized card, but mom can hang it up and enjoy it all year, knowing you think she is “WOW!”  If you want to personalize it, the hand lettering tutorial will show you how to make this yourself.  Either way, you can place it in a frame, or make mod podge art on wood.

Hand lettering has been growing in popularity and is such a fun way to express your creativity. Although it’s great to have a basic understanding of typography and nice to already have beautiful handwriting, hand lettering is not so much writing and type as it is drawing shapes and illustrations through letters. It actually embraces imperfections! No need to fret about measurements. If it looks right and feels right, then it is right! This Mother’s Day, why not try your hand at lettering?

Mother’s Day Printable Hand Lettering Tutorial

Do you want to learn how to create this Hand Lettering Tutorial and Printable for Mother’s Day?

First, sketch the outline of your letters in pencil. Easy. Don’t worry about getting all of the lines perfect. I used a ruler to help guide me, but it is by no means perfect. I like the hand drawn look which gives you some room for imperfection.

Next, draw about 10 different types of flowers and 8 different leaves on a separate piece of paper to use as a reference.

Next, fill the inside of the letters with the flowers and leaves you just sketched. Try to get as close to the edges as you can without touching the sketched outline. Vary the sizes of the flowers and adjust the shapes to fit the letter forms. Although it takes a bit more time, I sketched the flowers and leaves in PENCIL first and then went over it with a fine tip pen after I was satisfied with the spacing. This also allows you to erase and fix any mistakes that don’t quite look right.

Erase the outside lines, then color! I think it looks equally stunning in black and white too.
