A Mother’s Day Garden Quote Gift Idea is the perfect solution to give to your mom, grandma, daughter, or wife to show them just how much you love them.
This Mother’s Day Garden Quote Gift Idea will surely bring a smile to the face of those you love. The quote says, “If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.” How sweet is that? I remember hearing that years ago, and it striking me as so sweet. Paired with some flowers (real or silk) this is such a thoughtful gift. You could frame it, or do as I did, and make it a craft!
Having lived far apart from my mom, it’s not like I spent time with her on Mother’s Day over the years, but I’ve definitely tried to be thoughtful in sending her something, and the last Mother’s Day before her passing, she squealed over the family photo blanket I had made for her. I showed it to her via skype from Texas to Ghana, and when we visited 6 weeks later, I brought it to her. She seriously LOVED that blanket. She draped it over the couch, and for the months after that, she’d talk about it, and tell me how everyone that came by commented about it. Her family was truly her joy. I know that it continues to be her joy, and she watches us from above, and cheers for us in our triumphs, and prays for us in our struggles. I have no doubt about that.
I love giving personalized, handmade gifts to those I love, I think it makes people feel extra special. You can even sign your name on the back, in case there is any confusion! I wanted to share a Mother’s Day gift idea, but it is also a great gift for your daughter, a dear friend, or grandma. Very versatile.
With the provided PDF print, you can easily just frame it, but I wanted to make it special, and used a piece of craft wood I found at my local craft store.
Here is what you will need for the project:
- printable quote (below)
- wood of any kind
- white paint
- mod podge
- paint brush
I didn’t take pictures of the process, because it’s SO simple! Here is an image of my daughter holding the print and the wood (mess up from an older project) for the Mother’s Day Garden Quote Gift Idea.
After I printed the quote, I cut it out around the edges of the flowers.
Paint! You can use any type of paint, but I painted my wood with white spray paint, even around the edges. Let it dry.
With paint brush, spread mod podge onto the wood surface, and immediately smooth print on top.
Once the print is smooth, spread mod podge over the top of the print, paying special attention to get all of the edges. Don’t spread TOO much, or the ink might bleed.
Let it dry, and voila!
This gift can be given with an easel, or by itself, but it will need to be leaning against something when displayed.
