Need some DIY mothers day gift ideas

Posted by   + Show Post
For my Mom and MIL. Would like to incorporate DD somehow, she's their first granddaughter and this is their first mothers day as grandmas. I've been pondering for days and can't think of anything. Any ideas?

What I plan on doing is buying a canvas then put my foot prints on it let it dry then put my sons inside mine. Then put following in my foot steps.

Some grandparents like the pictures like those, everyone has different tastes. My mom for example would never use a keychain because her key rings are FILLED with keys and a key chain would just get in the way or break, but she loves being able to hang her grandchildrens pictures and artwork in her office.   Crafts made by children though aren't tacky, they are from the heart.

I would make her a keychain so she could use it everyday. Some times those pictures look a little tacky. Jmo.

It is my opinion that they look tacky. Sorry if that offends you. I was making a suggestion. Bc the op asked for suggestions.

The only thing that's looked tacky in this post is your reply. It was rude and not necessary to pick on children's artwork like that! If you wanted to suggest a key chain because you fell some parents and grandparents would get more use out of it, fine, leave it at that, but again, picking on children's artwork is far more tacky!

Yeah because going around calling pictures that kids made tacky isn't rude at all *rolls eyes*.. 

Go eat some chocolate  for your PMS and stop picking on little kids' artwork

I'm pregnant so no pms, maybe you need some though. You seem a bit high strung.
