I really was at a loss for what an appropriate gift would be, so, like any diy-er, I turned to Pinterest for inspiration. I decided to make a monogram framed gift, kind of like this, or this. I was so inspired, and this is what I ended up creating:
|For the birthday girl!|
|The tools: wooden 5x7 frame purchased from Goodwill, scrapbook paper|
and wooden letter from Hobby Lobby, paint from Michaels,
and other paint and brushes I had on hand.
The project was very simple, but made a big impact. It did take me three nights and the morning of the party to make sure the paint was fully dried, but I was really happy with the outcome.
I spent less than $5 on this personalized, homemade gift:
I hope the birthday girl liked it!
