This super simple Mother’s Day gift DIY is sure to make a meaningful memory that she will cherish. You can turn a simple photo into a unique mother’s day gift in just a few easy steps. Let’s get started!

Bottles of Americana Multi-Surface acrylic paint are laid out next to various crafting supplies.

Items needed:

You’ll start by adding two layers of Americana Multi-Surface Satin in the shade Black Tie onto the wooden backing to create a black background.

The Multi-Surface Satin is so versatile, you can use it on virtually any surface and no primer is needed. It’s specially designed to brush out smoothly and is super durable too. There are over 100 colors so you shouldn’t have a hard time finding some you love!

Wait for the black to dry completely, then you can go in with your favorite pops of color! I chose to do some simple hearts here. I love how the colors pop against the dark background!
