So my wife was slacking this year trying to figure out something for her Mom for Mother’s Day. Leave it to me to come to the rescue.
First is just a simple cork trivet from Ikea. I purchased a ton of these a good while back on our last trip to Ikea and they engrave super well. I had actually made all the letters of the alphabet a little while back, so, this was an easy one.
My Mother-in-law collects button hooks. She has a ton of them, so this idea came to me. FInd an old image of a button hook and engrave it on some canvas boards from the dollar store and frame it! I’ve done this a couple times now for different things, and honestly, I really like the way they turn out. Was actually able to find an old patent image from the 1800s. Could have been a bit darker, but, not too bad.
Ahh a mother’s day gift that is actually catered to the person as if they’re a person and not just a mother. Massive bonus points because it isn’t absolutely buried in awful semiscript fonts. This gets a like, and it would get two or three if I could.
