Mom's LOVE photos so why not create the perfect gift for Mom that features a photo of her kids or Grandma's grandkids. For this project, we're using a house-shaped frame. You can use any kind of frame you want. I suggest shopping for Jillibean Soup's "Mix the Media" surfaces HERE or at your JoAnn stores. You can find this specific frame HERE at JoAnn stores. There are lots of different styles to choose from. Whatever frame you choose will need to be removable and have a flat surface on which you can paint.

House-Shaped Photo Frame Tutorial:


For this project, you'll need a foam brush, a regular paintbrush and several colors of acrylic paint. These particular colors are from Target.

Step 1: Remove the center from the house frame. Using different foam brushes and paint brushes, create a pattern. Let each coat of paint dry before adding the next layer. Try using circle foam brushes, the ends of paintbrushes, and bristle brushes for different shapes and textures on your frame.

Step 2: Use E6000 glue to glue a gold clothespin to the top of the frame. Let dry.

This is a smaller house frame, but you could do a frame with multiple photos, or photos in a different pattern. It's totally up to you. The key here is to think of fun colors that will match Mom's decor and then go from there. The end result is completely up to you!
