Hungry Little Caterpillar Frame

For Mother's Day, I created this adorable little frame for Brady to give his Mommy. I watch Brady for Amy twice a week. I just knew I wanted to come up with something for Amy for Mother's Day. While I was contemplating the ideas I had, I knew I wanted to incorporate his finger prints...or something along those lines. While reading to my daughter Genevieve, I came up with the idea of a picture frame of Brady with his fingerprints as the caterpillar and the saying "Mommy's Very Hungry Little Caterpillar." After a trip to the craft store, I purchased an unfinished frame and rub on letters. While Brady was at our house today, I created this gift for him to give his Mommy and even took him out for a photo shoot! The caterpillar was created by taking Brady's big toe as the red head and his fingers for the green body. He loved making it! And Genevieve was very jealous...I see something similar in Genevieve's future!

And with the inspiration book!

Happy 1st Mother's Day Amy!
I hope you love your frame and enjoy your special day with Brady!

stumbled across your blog, you are so talented! what a cute idea! what kind of paint did you use for the frame and where did you get your supplies?

Trinity2979, thanks for the compliment! I'm glad you found my blog. I actually got the frame at Michael's as well as the rub on letters. The paint I already had at home (yes, I have lots of project stuff laying around at home)...but they sell project paint at any hobby store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby.
