For the father's day project I used two of the frames I got from at my closest thrift store, and that...
I already used on my Spring Mantel as plain and simple painted open frames.
This time I wanted to use these little figures! Can you guess what these are?
They are Tile Spacers! While visiting the hardware store a couple of week ago these little guys got my attention. I loved their shape. I bought some packages to put them to good use, in a different way than the intended.
I set to fill the entire frame with them. Only thing, that background color was not the best!
It was changed with a white poster I had.
I began playing with the spacers to see how to set them up.
I set the first row of spacers (vertical and horizontally) and began to glued them in place, two by two.
Line by line. It was like doing a puzzle, I like puzzles! I just had to glued them in place.
Two by two...
Closing in the space.
Until it was done! I love the way it looks! So much texture!
But it was supposed to be for father's day! So, I glued the other frame on top!
The artists' hands were needed!
Dad's recognition was done!
The idea for the hands down came from this site! They have fabulous Father's day ideas!
And I really love the ending masterpiece!
Happy Father's Day!
