EASY DIY Mother's Day Gift

Yum
Making a "Mother's Day" Canvas or Mom gift for little to know money or effort.
What you will need to complete this gift:
Canvas ( you can pick these up anywhere even thrift stores
because you will paint over it!)
Sample Paint ( mine is from Home Depot .50 cents
Scissors
Paint brush
Setting spray or you can use Hair spray
You children's or grand children's drawings and art work pieces
Stick of glue~not pictured they have them at the dollar tree! 
Paint he canvas~ I used a light blue color over mine.
Let sit and dry for a good 10-15 minutes. 
Cut the children's scribbles into flower petals or a design and arrange how you want it to look. Then glue each piece down and make sure they are secure. I would recommend not using the white liquid glue to prevent dots and uneven surfaces. I just used a glue stick and plastered the back of the paper petals and it seemed to work just fine. 
I wrote "Family" on this one but you can write the date, "Happy Mother's Day" etc. Use a sharpie or marker to writing anything BEFORE sealing. They spray with a sealer or a aerosol hair spray will work as well! Let dry and you have  great artwork that is easy, thoughtful and sentimental! Over all this gift can be less then $5 if you are resourceful! We gave them this year to the grandparents for Christmas and I really loved how the turned out so I made one for myself!
