I always have a tough time coming up with a Father's Day gift for my father-in-law. He is so difficult to buy for. He would like to try all sorts of new-fangled technological gadgets, but alas, most have to interact with computers and neither he or his wife use one. The few "tech" things we have bought for him he usually has needed help with repeatedly. So inevitably, I revert to homemade. This year, I made a picture frame and inserted a four generation photo.
Unfinished wooden picture frame
Mod Podge (the best stuff ever!)
Scrap book paper of your choice (3 selections)
Paint to match your paper
Hot glue gun
Lay the frame on the backside of the scrapbook paper and trace the shapes you need (quarter the frame). Cut out.
Attach the papers to the frame with a layer of Mod Podge. And then apply another layer of Mod Podge to the top, allow to dry.
Paint the outside edge and allow to overlap to front (I used a sponge for this not a paintbrush). Cover seams of paper quarters with ribbon. Glue wood pendant onto a corner of the frame.
Finished project! Simple, quick and easy!
