Hand-made Goodie of the Week: Child's Art Holder

I originally made this as a gift for my Dad at our church's craft night this past November.  It was really easy and came out super-cute.  Best of all, he loved it!

You'll need:
1 unfinished wooden frame
2 unfinished wooden hands (you can get the hands and frame at Michaels)
2 wooden clothespins
Foam adhesive letters-if you're feeling extra crafty, you can buy unpainted wooden letters
Photo of your little artist
Paint in whatever colors you'd like to use
Hot glue gun and glue

Paint the frame, hands and clothespins (and letters if using wooden ones.)  Set aside to dry, about 15-20 minutes.  Attach letters, hands and clothespins on front with hot glue.  Attach two pieces of ribbon, same length, to back with hot glue and tie unglued ends in a bow (if you'd like, you can just loop one longer piece of ribbon, gluing each end to the back and skip the bow.)  Cut photo to fit opening, insert and you're done!

Make Some Scribbles!
