We are nuts about you!

We are nuts about you! 🙂

If you have a husband like mine and they have a million nuts and bolts just lying around grab a few and make this adorable picture frame for him for Father’s Day.

What you will need:

  • a board of any kind
  • sandpaper or a sanding sponge
  • handful  of nuts
  • picture
  • glue
  • paint of any color (optional)
  • paint brush (optional)

I sanded down the piece of wood. Normally I would use my electric sander but honestly I was too tired to put on my boots, walk all the way out to the shop. Plus my babies were taking a nap and I don’t like going to the shop and being so far away from them. That sounds better anyway so I’ll stick with that excuse. LOL

I had never heard of a sanding sponge before..png

Then I painted it and let it dry.

Everyone loves showing off their friends and family with beautiful frames. Amazon has a wide selection of unique frames for anyone!.png

I grabbed a handful of all different sized nuts. I thought it would add character if they were different. And glue them down using a matt finish Mod Podge. Gotta love that stuff! I use it for almost everything! 🙂IMG_6057

This chalkboard paint is so fun to use! I have make menu boards, game score boards, holiday signs, welcome signs... you name it you can use this stuff! And it is so easy to apply! one coat and you're done!-2.png

I then use my computer to make a stencil. One of these day I might get a stencil maker like a Circuit but until then I do them by hand. I’ve gone into how to make a stencil in a different post.

Paint the word on.Nuts1

Then again, using a thin coat of Mod Podge glue your photo onto the wood.

And your awesome, one-of-a-kind Father’s Day frame is finished! Nuts2

I hope you like this idea! It was so fun! 😀

Happy Father’s Day!
