Magnetic Message Board


Framed Magnetic Board by

This is a great Mother’s Day DIY gift idea project because it is super easy, totally customizable to any decor or style, and is something  mom can use every day. This is also a great way to upcycle any old photo frames you have laying about that have gone out of use. Big or small, just find a photo frame and order a sheet of galvanized steel cut to fit in the frame. A thin piece of galvanized steel, such as .024″ will work great to make a light-weight board. Plus, a 12″ x 12″ piece is less that $3.00!

Wrought Iron Finial Wall Hanging

Wrought iron finials can be used in-doors or out and are commonly added to curtain rods to add custom features and more emphasis. But, you don’t have to replace all of the curtains in the house to use this idea! This type of treatment can also be applied to a wall hanging rod, such as for a flag or other decor item. This could also be applied to an outdoor flag pole or house-mounted post. This is a great Mother’s Day DIY gift idea if mom likes to express herself with seasonal flag decor!  Find a complete assortment of wrought iron components here >>
