Father's Day Art

Handmade Father's Day gift ideas

Father's Day is around the corner. Let's make something special for him. Kids' hands are needed!

I used two frames from my closest thrift store for this project.

My Spring Mantel first used them as plain and simple opened frames.

This time, I wanted to use these little figures. 

You might be wondering... What are these?

Well, they are Tile Spacers.  

They caught my attention while visiting the hardware store a couple of weeks ago. I loved their shape, so I bought some packages to put them to good use, but in a different way than intended. ;)

The idea was to fill the inside of the entire frame with texture, aka these littles.

The dark cardboard color wasn't the best match for the new treatment, so I replaced it 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 hot glue to put them in place, two by two.

Line by line.  

It was like doing a puzzle; I like puzzles. I just had to glue them in place.

Half way...

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. 

And Voila!
