Gifts under £20 - Name plaque

When we talked about the gift weeks with the DT, something we insisted on is to have variety of gifts, from feminine to masculine, but also some gifts for the children. After all, if you are making something to offer this Christmas, there is a good chance that you will need children gifts. 
So this is what Jane did with this beautiful name plaque for baby's first Christmas or  christening maybe?

I started with some papier mache letters which were painted..

The same paint was used on the frame...

When the paint was dry (it really doesn't take long!!), I stuck the gingham paper to the back of the frame...

Now the fun part, decorating the letters and adding the decorations.

  1. Brilliant Jane, you've given me an idea for a baby gift. Fabulous!

  2. I would not have thought to combine the papier mache letters with the frame, such a good idea !
