Nail Frame Father’s Daya Gift DIY Directions

Step 1

You want to find a black frame for contrast and you want it to have a somewhat wide frame.

Step 2

Using a stir stick, spread the glue on the frame, one section at a time. You want it nice and thick so the nails and washers really stick well.  

Apply glue to the black frame

*The glue you use will be key to the success of this project. You want it thick enough to be able to hold onto the objects and you want to make sure it dries perfectly clear.

Step 3

Add the nails or anything you like. Obviously, if small children are doing the project, use objects to embed that are more appropriate for their age.  Keep going, until you have it all covered.

Allow it to dry. This might take a day or two, depending on the humidity in your area and the temperature.
