Mother's Day Flower Printable DIY
Anyone can print out a flower on Etsy and frame it for mom but for this project, you are printing out the birth month flower for each of Mom's children. These birth month flowers come in a neutral color so this wall hanging will work perfectly with all design styles.
BIRTH MONTH FLOWER PRINTABLES
Let me explain birth month flower printables. For every month of the year, there is a flower that goes with that month. So we took that flower and created a printable and then added the name of the flower and the month on the bottom.
These birth month flower printables look like botanical prints. They are a classic timeless design.
Mom will cherish seeing her baby's birth month flowers and always remember the time you spend making her something special. Now let's get started making a Mother's day gallery wall hanging.
MOTHER'S DAY FLOWER WALL HANGING SUPPLIES
- Birth month flower printable (you can buy the whole birth month flower set or individuals but make sure to print one out for each of Mom's children)
- Dollar Tree gold floating frames
- Double-sided tape if you are suspending the printable inside the glass
- 1″ satin or grosgrain ribbon
- Glue gun and glue
- Round book ring metal piece (I used book rings). Look in the craft, school supply, or jewelry making section for something that will work
Now that you have all your supplies gathered let's talk about what makes this a unique Mother's day gift idea.
DIY DOLLAR TREE MOTHER'S DAY GIFT
To begin making this DIY dollar tree mother's day gift let's begin by printing your birth month flowers.
DOWNLOAD, PRINT AND CUT PRINTABLES
After you select each birth month or buy the whole set download the months you plan to use and then print them to the size of your frame on cardstock. My floating frames are 4 x 6 so I selected the 4 x 6 option in the advanced setting when I went to print them.
On my little frames, I didn't want them to go edge to edge so after I printed them the size of my frame I used the glass from my frame and placed it over the image. Then I used a pencil and drew around the edge. Next, I used my paper cutter to cut it but if you only have scissors that work great too.

For my frames, I decided to have a floating piece of art inside on the glass so I trimmed a little extra off around the edges.
HOW TO FRAME FLOATING PRINTABLE ART
Now that you have your art cut to size let me share how I framed these designs where the art is floating in the middle. There are two ways you can do this. First, you can sandwich the piece of art between two pieces of glass or you can place the print on the top of the glass.
If your floating frame comes with a back and only one piece of glass then the latter will work for you but you need to remove the back so that you can see through the glass. But either way, you will need double-sided tape to adhere the print to the glass.
Simply put one small piece of double-sided tape to a piece of glass and attach the printable to the glass. If you have a front piece of glass you can go ahead and set it on top.
Note: After making and hanging this piece I recommend adding double-sided tape to the corners instead. I did notice it sticking out a little around the edges because there is nothing holding it down. If you have a second piece of glass I think you are good with just one piece of double-sided tape.
Then place the glass with print on it inside the frame and press down on the tabs on the back as tight as you can.
HOW TO MAKE A FRAMED COLLAGE WALL HANGING
Now that you have all your printables framed let's create a collage wall hanging. Begin by placing all the frames in a row the distance apart to your liking or you can use my measurement of 1″ from the bottom of one to the top of the other.
Next, turn them over so you can see the back of the frames and then measure from the very top to the very bottom. Take that measurement and add six more inches. If you are using three frames that are 4 x 6 then you should have a measurement of 20″. Then double that number and this is how long your ribbon needs to be cut.
Now it is time to attach the ribbon to the back of the frames. First, measure down on your ribbon 3 inches and mark it with a straight pin or something. Remember that your ribbon is folded in half so you are measuring down three inches from the ring where it is folded.
Then measure and mark the center of the top of the back of each frame.
Glue Ribbon to Frames
Next, add a thin line of glue along the back top of the frame. Make sure to not put too much glue where you will see it from the front.
Once that is dry and secure add another thin line of glue and place the other half of the ribbon.
Repeat this step on the top of each frame until you have all the ribbon glued to the frames. Since your frames are already 1″ apart you shouldn't have to measure anymore. Just apply glue and place the ribbon.
Now that you all finished let's see the finished product and talk about ideas on where to hang your Mother's day printable DIY.
