DIY Painted Garden Birds Dollar Store Hack Mother's Day Gift idea

On Monday I joined several blogging friends for a fun Mother’s Day blog hop with a garden theme! I shared some cute DIY Painted Garden Birds that I will be gifting to my mom in her Mother’s Day garden gift basket. Check out my post to see how to quickly and easily transform dollar store birds with a little bit of craft paint.


You will find links to all of the participants’ creative “Mother’s Day in the Garden” ideas at the end of my painted birds post.
