Father’s Day… a bit late

Life has been a bit whirlwind lately so I am behind on just about everything in life.  Thank goodness for my friend MaryLea at Pink and Green Mama!  She posted a wonderful idea via facebook that I just had to try out with my little one for Father’s Day.  Sadly I had waited till the 11th hour to do anything so this was perfect!  She  located this on the wonderful blog, “The Magic Onion009

We started off with our supplies.  Watercolor paints from Prang.  Bare wood frames from Michaels—these only cost about a buck.  I added Mod-Podge since I love to have things sealed up and shiny.  I swear I am part crow!  And what would an art project be without glitter?  Incomplete I say!  I had to select Martha’s glitter.  It is just so fine and like pixie dust-grown up glitter.

013 So to make the easy peasy lemon squeezy project…

  • Soak your wooden frames
  • PAINT—this is the really fun part for the kids!  Make sure the color is really saturated and vibrant.  If you want to rub some paint off for the grain of the wood to show.
  • Dry time
  • Mod-Podge and glitter it up…again this is the fun part for the “kids”.
  • Last but not least find a cute photo and pop it into place. 

In hindsight I would have most likely used a black and white photo in this colorful frame but it our end result was still darn cute.
