So I am totally the type of person who is into handmade gifts and such. So to me, this seems like a wicked idea.
But, I am worried it might not be as awesome to others.
My idea was to create a piece of art for each of them (there are 3 of them).
Basically I wanted to have a sort of newspaper wrapped canvas (it’s not technically wrapped). Paint a quote about friendship with their fav colour.
Kind of like the pic below but with clear script.
So, would you like this gift? Would you think it was lame and throw it in your closet or think it was handmade full of awesomeness and proudly hang it on your wall?

I think it’s an awesome idea. Are your BMs the kind of people who will appreciate this?

Personally, I like it, but I think it’s good to be sensitive to other people as well–if they don’t hang it up, don’t say anything about it! Don’t feel hurt if it doesn’t mesh with their decor! Not hanging it up doesn’t mean they think it’s lame. I have a picture a friend of mine did (and she’s a professional artist) in my closet because I’ve never been able to find a way to hang it that looks right. Doesn’t mean I didn’t appreciate it.

I would probably think it’s pretty cool but not know what to do with it and it would end up in my closet.
@kristophine: I agree with you

I think it’s very cool! And if one of my friends made something so amazingly heartlfelt like that I would definitely find a place for it 🙂

I personally would love it, but i know my BM’s would not care for it as a gift, except for one. I’m all about handmade too. I made about 90% of the christmas presents i gave last year (mostly jewelry)

i love this and I am sure your BMs will too! Just a suggestion-If someone made this in my fav colour, which is purple, I would probably not find a space for it in my home, which is decorated with more earthy tones and reds, so, I suggest making it in a colour that fits in with their decor, of a more neutral colour like the grey’ish one you posted!!!! 🙂 I might ‘steal’ your idea and make my Maid/Matron of Honor one, if that’s okey?

I would appreciate the time and effort it took to make it but likely not put it up because it’s not my style. Is it your bridal party’s?
Also if it was a smaller scale (say 8×10) then I would probably put it in a room that is not a main living space.

Thanks everyone for all your input.
After thinking about it more, I don`t think that I will be doing it. (I will be doing it for myself tho lol)
I think that 1 of the girls would love it, but she lives with her mom so I don
t think she could put it up. The other two just wouldnt really be into it I think.
