Father’s Day Frames

Before I started hosting workshops at my house I would have a few friends and their kids over for our annual Father’s Day Craft-stravaganza. (I feel weird not putting an exclamation point there) I just dug up this cute photo of our first Father’s Day project from three or four years ago. You can do this project with kids of any age.

All I did was purchase plain wooden frames from the craft store. I bought mine from Beverly’s but I’ve seen similar frames on Amazon.

Then we painted the frames with Tempera Paint. As you can see, these girls were little so  I gave them only three colors to work with. It made things much simpler. :

Then it was time to give the frames some extra flare. Use whatever you’ve got. Here’s a list of some of the supplies that I used for decorating:

  • ConfettiSupplies Fathers Day Frame-2
  • Plastic Jewels
  • Stencils
  • Colorful Feathers
  • Glitter Glue
  • Puffy Stickers
  • Other Odds and Ends
  • Elmer’s Glue

 

We even painted messages on top of the brightly colored feathers using stencils.            This made for a really cool effect:

Feather Words

These were so easy and they all turned out gorgeous! My husband has been keeping his frame at his desk at work for years. If you try this project, I’d love to hear about how it turns out!
