Mother's Day Quote Plaque

This Mother’s Day 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 such a beautiful quote about Mother’s.

Mother’s Day Memories

Having lived far apart from my mom, we were not often able to be together on Mother’s Day.  But I’ve always tried to be thoughtful in the gifts that I send to her. 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 hand deliverd it to her. She seriously LOVED that blanket. She draped it over the couch and, for the months after that, she would 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.  She 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.

How to make a Wood Slice Plaque Mother’s Day Quote

Here is what you will need for the project:

  • printable quote (below)
  • scissors
  • wood of any kind
  • white paint
  • mod podge
  • paint brush

You can grab the supplies quick from the Amazon links, or at your local store.

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 slice (I reused a mess up from an older project).  These supplies and some Mod Podge are all you will need to make this  Mother’s Day Quote Gift.

Mother's Day Quote Printable and Wood Slice

Step 1:

After I printed the quote, I cut it out around the edges of the flowers.

Step 2:

Paint! You can use any type of paint, but I painted my wood with white spray paint, even around the edges. Let it dry.

Step 3:

With paint brush, spread mod podge onto the wood surface, and immediately smooth print on top.

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

Let it dry, and voila!
