Looking for a cute, hand-made gift that your kiddo can make for Dad for Father’s Day? Is Dad a handy kind of guy? Then take a look at today’s picture frame craft and art project using nuts and bolts!
You Will Need:
- a variety of nuts and bolts from the hardware store (we used the ones left over from our Personalized Plaques project – also for Father’s Day!)
- a picture frame with a mat
- hot glue gun
- a small canvas or white paper
- acrylic or tempera paint
First, Onetime (my 2.5 year old son) had a lot of fun making art by dipping the nuts and bolts in a variety of paint colours and pressing and rolling them on the canvas.
I think it turned out beautifully! Oh, and we purposely colour-coordinated with the picture that we wanted to frame – which helped it look nice too! I think Dad is going to love this picture and cherish it even more because it was made by his son!
