DIY Mother’s Day Gift Idea

What you’ll need for a beautiful Mother’s Day gift:

Shadow Box

Sticks & Stones

Glue Gun

 Accessories  – decorative touches of your choice. 


Mother’s Day


I gathered little sticks from around our yard and went to the beach to collect the rocks.  

I went to AC Moore and picked up the shadow box (used a 40% off coupon) as well as the butterflies and family wording from the scrap booking section.  I paid a total of $19.48.

I already own a glue gun and the glue sticks.  I honestly don’t know how I lived all these years before owning a glue gun.

Placing the sticks around to make a tree formation, I realized placing them and then using the glue was the best option.  

Once the tree was made, I then started on my “rock family”  five in total, which represents our crazy family.  I then secured them with the glue to look as though they were sitting on a log.  

Finally putting a tiny bit of glue on the butterflies and the family quote and I was done!  Aside from gathering the sticks and stones and purchasing the few items I needed,  putting this together took less than 10 minutes.

There you have it!  An easy DIY Mother’s Day gift idea that has meaning.  If you decide to make one, I would love to have you forward me a picture.

Wishing all mamas, step mamas, fur baby mamas, and grand mamas a very happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day
