1. Color Pour Resin Photo Frame

This resin photo frame is a simple, easy project you can create for your mom. It is the perfect decoration for a coffee table, night stand, or work desk! We used our seashell mix-ins for the beach themed photo, but you can customize it however you want!

We’ve attached a tutorial video to show you how simple (and fun) this project is.
