Today I would like to share a really sweet, and oh so easy Mother’s Day gift idea.
Photo charms for bracelets or necklaces.
I made these for myself! A photo of me and my husband smooching on our wedding day, over 45 years ago, and my dear son when he was so small. Our favorite photo ever of him.
This one is of my dear mother, now in heaven. Miss her so very much. It was a photo taken on her last birthday. She is blowing out the candles on her birthday cake!
There are so many charms that can also be added for a bit of extra sweetness.
Kid’s artwork, a meaningful quote or saying reduced to size, would also work great.
The next photo is one of a piece of old lace placed in a locket. The lace was on my First Communion veil when I was a child. My mom made the veil and at the time I was sad that I did not have a really fancy store bought one like so many of the other little girls.
I wanted to frame the lace to remind myself of how horrible I was not to realize I had the best veil, one made with my mother’s love in every tiny stitch.
All you need to make any of these is one quick trip to Michael’s.
They have a nice selection of charms and lockets that are so inexpensive. There are many bracelets and chains to choose from as well.
Just select your photos, reduce on your computer, and print.
Trace the photos to the size of your locket or charm and assemble.
That is it!
Help your kids make some for mom or grandma, they will love these as if they were made of real gold or silver. Place them in a box with a ribbon and a handmade card or drawing.
Hope you all are working on your special mom’s gift for Sunday.
