10 Mother's Day DIY's Using Photos

I’ve been loving photo-inspired products lately from big wall murals, images on pillows to a dresser IKEA hack I just posted yesterday; the mediums are endless and inspiring.  Coincidentally I’ve come across a few really good photo project ideas that would be perfect for Mother’s Day recently and thought I’d share some of my finds with you to make your mom something memorable this year.  These are perfect to customize using your own photos and transferring on anything from ceramics to fabric.
