Here’s what you need for this diy Mother’s Day craft:

 

I am really liking Hobby Lobby’s new, ready-to-craft signs. This makes it super convenient, especially with a craft like this! And the 3″ chipboard letters come in a few different font sizes, so you can choose whatever suites you.

At only $4.99 and either using a 40% off coupon or getting it 50% off, this is a steal of a deal for a wood piece all ready to go!

 

I decided to do the I Love Mom one and then the I Love You one; that way you could give it to Grandma or to just someone you love anytime of the year! And if you have 2 children making these, Mom could get one that is a little different from the other. 

 

For the I Love Mom one, I decided on pink letters in this paint. Again, you can do whatever you want to with the paint color!

And for the I Love You one, I went with this tangerine acrylic paint and this turquoise acrylic paint.

Start by letting the kids paint the letters. They will dry pretty quickly! I painted mine on a paper bag but later realized a plastic garbage bag would’ve been better since they wanted to stick to that paper bag.

Next, trace the heart shape around the picture you have chosen. (I’ve included a PDF of the heart shape in case you wanted to use that as your template when finding an appropriate sized picture.) No worries if your picture is a bit too small or too big for the heart. After you put the mod podge on and it dries, you can use some basic sandpaper and sand the edges evenly.

 

 

(I’ve included a pdf  -FIND IT HERE–  of the heart shape if you are using these hearts from Hobby Lobby. That way you can use it as a template for a good picture size. I personally like to use Pages on my MacBook and just drag pics into the document making them fit into the shape I’m using. Then, I get the page printed and I am certain the picture size is good.)

 

Put a thin layer of mod podge on the wooden heart and put the picture on it, smoothing out any wrinkles.

Wait 15 minutes, then put a layer of mod podge over the picture. Do about 4-5 layers of mod podge, waiting 15-20 minutes drying time between each layer. Sand the edges to smooth it.

 

Lay everything out like you want it. I like to put light pencil marks, so that when I am glueing it down I can see where everything is supposed to go.

Using the hot glue gun (an adult should be doing this step!) glue each piece on.

 

Now, it’s all ready to gift! This slatted wood sign has an easel back and a wall hook, so the person receiving it can display it whatever way they choose!
