Picture Frame

Things Required
  • Twigs
  • Strings
  • Glue (preferably hot glue)
  • Dad's Photo (for framing)
  • First, decide on a photo of dad that you would like to frame. You may also pick a photo that captures a moment of you and dad together.
  • Now, take two bunches of twigs. Each bunch should have at least a minimum of 6-7 twigs in it.
  • One bunch should be 2- 3 inches longer than the length of the photo and the other bunch should be 2 inches longer than the width of the photo.
  • Place the twigs in such a way that they neatly surround the photo on all its sides.
  • Also, ensure that the twigs extend outward of the photo for about an inch on all the sides.
  • Now, cut a string into four equal parts and tie the twigs at each corner with the help of it.
  • Paste the photo onto the back of the twig frame. Generally, hot glue is more preferable as it will help to fix the picture better.
  • Finally, make a small loop with the help of a string and glue it to the top batch of twigs, for hanging the photo.
Picture Easel

Things Required
  • Twigs
  • Hot Glue
  • Yarn or Thick Thread
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • Crayons or Paint
  • Take four twigs. Three should be of equal length and the fourth a few inches shorter.
  • Glue two of the long twigs and the short twig together, so that they form the alphabet 'A'. Carefully, tie the joints with yarn.
  • Next, glue the fourth twig to the longer twigs in the A shape to form a twig tripod. Tie the joint with yarn.
  • Now, cut a cardboard piece so that it fits on the twig easel. Paste a picture or simply paint a picture on it.
  • Cut four pieces of twigs and glue them around the picture to make a frame for it.
  • Finally, rest this picture on the easel and your picture easel is ready.
