Show Mom how much you care with this super easy watercolor art for Mother’s Day! This project goes from start to finish in about 20 minutes. It makes a beautiful gift straight from the heart!
For this project, I gathered a few supplies I had on hand:
- 8×10 canvas
- Carbon Paper
- Heart Cookie Cutter
- Copper Leaf Marker
- Paint brushes
I printed some words in a beautiful font and cut them out and laid them on my canvas where I wanted them. Then using a large heart-shaped cookie cutter as a pattern, I drew a heart lightly with a pencil.
I put a piece of carbon paper under the words and traced them onto the canvas with a pencil.
Using a copper leaf marker, I filled in the traced letters. I would have rather used gold, but I didn’t have that in my supplies. You can pick up these markers at most craft stores.
The heart that I drew was a little dark, so I erased it until it was barely there. That way when I painted over it, I wouldn’t be able to see the pencil outline. This worked really well.
I didn’t use any fancy watercolors. These were leftover from one of my kids from school.
Using random colors, I just started painting mini flowers all over the heart shape outline. Believe me when I say, I’m no painter, but this was totally easy to do.
Framed, this makes a beautiful gift for Mom!

Wishing my own incredible Mom, and all of you Moms out there, a very special Mother’s Day!
