For this father's day project I used two frames I got at my closest thrift store.
They were already used on my Spring Mantel as plain and simple 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 they 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 on hand.
I began playing with the spacers to see how to set them up.
I set the first row of spacers (vertically and horizontally), using a hot glue gun to set 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!
Dad's recognition was done!
The idea for the hands down came from this site! They have many more fabulous Father's day ideas!
And I really love the ending masterpiece. Now, if you have a pending tiling project, that would serve as a good remainder too :)
Happy Father's Day!
