Manly Man Picture Frame
Did you like this cool picture frame that Hot Rod made for his Papa for Father's Day? It's super duper easy to make.
You will need: Blank wooden frame (or a recycled one) Paint (acrylic or spray paint) Paint brushes (if you're using paint from the bottle) Assorted small manly items (washers, nails, screws, metal bits, coins, etc) Strong glue
First: Paint the frame. We already had spray paint out for another project so Hot Rod just used that - in a manly black color of course.
Second: Wait until the paint has dried and then glue on your gathered "manly items".
Since these items are most likely metal and possibly heavy, we used a strong glue. I think ours was mosaic tile glue, but there are several brands of strong glue that work well on attaching metal.
Let everything dry and there you have it! I was very proud that Hot Rod used this photo of him with his sisters. I told him he could put a picture of just him and his Papa in the frame. But he picked this one. Ross has it sitting on the work bench in his garage.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
