When I saw this adorable handprint trees wrapped canvas from Come Together Kids I knew I wanted to make my own version to give to my kids’ grandmas for Mother’s Day.
In the original version Laura goes all out thrifty using fabric from worn out clothes on the canvas! For my version I decided to use scrapbooking paper and a clearance 8×10 frame from from Michaels. I already had pink scrapbooking paper and a multi-flower punch on hand so my total spent was about $7.00.
I wasn’t sure what to use for the white centers of the flowers so I ended up dabbing some craft glue on them and shaking a little white glitter on top. It’s hard to see in the picture (it’s nearly impossible to get a good pic of a frame with glass!) but the glitter gives the trees some subtle shimmer.
My Mother-in-law loved the special and personal gift from the kids so that’s good enough for me! Please click over to Laura’s blog to read the project tutorial. I could see this craft adapted for a teacher or birthday as well.
