A Perfect Mother's Day Gift Idea
My MIL loves it when the kids make her something for any holiday. And this Mother's Day was no exception. I actually had a painted tile given to me years ago, but it wasn't until last week that I had this "aha" moment. I went to Home Depot and bought the tiles for $.15, the paint was $3.00 from Michael's and the clear coat was another $3.00.
He loves lions, so of course he had to paint one.
He painted a bowl of fruit that I have sitting on my counter here. It's another favorite.
We put felt pads on the back.
Robbie painted these in less than an hour. I put several coats of the finish paint and let it dry in the sun. It said to wait an hour between coats, but with our heat lately, it dried in 20 minutes. And the total cost of the project was less than $7.00. But I believe it will be priceless to my MIL.
