Father's Day Craft Idea

I really don't have a reason for putting this picture's just my favorite picture of Jacob...ever. I have a 5x7 of this picture on the bookcase right by the couch, and I see it 20 times a day. I just love it. That crazy hair. Those chubby little miracle!

ANYWHO....cute idea for Father's Day....A picture frame with nuts and washers and hardware type stuff. I'll post a picture as soon as I find it!!! (I've been looking for an hour and a half!!!)
I used a dollar store, wooden picture frame. So you'll need any wooden frame, and then some washers and nuts (bolts won't stick, too heavy), any flat, thin hardware.
Glue the nuts and washers and whatever to the wooden frame with a hot glue gun. If you don't have a hot glue gun, use super glue. Place them wherever you want on the can be random or organized, it's up to you.
Then, I took alphabet stickers and Put "Daddy" on the top center of the frame. If you have decent handwriting you could write or paint it on as well. Add a picture of your kids, or your kids with dad, and BAM! Adorable, inexpensive, heart-felt Father's day gift!
If your hubby isn't "handy" or the hardware just wouldn't be appropriate, you can use pretty much whatever...anything flat and not too heavy. You could use an old jigsaw puzzle and glue pieces all over, you could use popsicle sticks that your kids color, buttons, whatever.
Hopefully I'll find the photo of the one I made....
Happy Friday!
