Last year for Mother's day I made my mom and mother in law picture plaques, if you will, with some wood and mod podge. It was a cheap and easy way to get a few sentimental tears. 2 gold stars for me!
This is the one I made for my mom and it was so simple. First I stained some plywood then I glued the pictures to scrapbook paper to give them a small border, then I mod podged them on. Bam, done!
And this one was for my mother in law. This was little harder to make. I cut a 2x4 into 5 5x7 pieces and painted them all black. Then I mod podged on my pictures and screwed in 2 half inch hinges between the pictures. I love how it turned out.
