I decided on a few personalized items for our mom's this year - we've got three of them to buy for. A Grandma, Grammy and a Nana - they all mean so much to us and it's tough to show your love/appreciation with just a gift. I love anything personalized so the gifts were easy.
For Grandma F. - She's always admiring a our mantle art so I thought I would make one of her own. It was super easy to create and with millions of fonts and colors you can create something that suits your personal style best. This quick project took only a few supplies (stretched canvas, acrylic paint, paint sponge) and a vinyl wall letter, for us it was an "F" for Ford (I made sure the letter was 2" smaller than my canvas to create and inch on top and bottom - you do what feels right). You can't tell from the picture but the canvas is matte and the letter is shiny, which makes a cool contrast.
Vinyl letter was purchased from Etsy.com - KNDChicago, Stretched canvas, paint, paint sponge - Michaels Craft store
For Grammy & Nana I had personalized polished sterling silver key chains hand stamped, also purchased on Etsy.com (can you tell I'm obsessed??). The front is adorned their "grandma name" and on the back we listed the grandkids - Rose, Ella, Oscar and Gwen. Aren't they gorgeous?Keychains created by Jeneri Jewelry (one of my fave jewelry designers on Etsy) - always exceptional quality
