It’s Father’s Day today. The kids did a foam picture frame to present to their father (or mother as it is after all Parents’ Month this month)

DIY Foam Picture Frame.

You’ll need half an A4 size of coloured craft foam. Place a smaller rectangle paper in the middle of that craft foam and draw a line along it.

Cut according to the line.

Paste a sheet of plastic over the cut out hole. Stick using cellophane tape.

Paste a coloured construction paper on a piece of rectangle hard board card. Paste double layered tape as shown above.

Paste the rectangle craft foam over the hard board card. Punch two holes on the hardboard card and tie ribbon.

Decorate as you wish. I’ve always loved ladybug as I believe it brings good luck. Refer here for the foam ladybug tutorial.

The DIY foam picture frame is done!

Victoria Ruby Azevedo gave me this idea through our Facebook Fan Club page and I tried it out with Ethan. This is our outcome πŸ™‚


Toilet Paper Roll Tree



Paint the toilet paper roll brown



Let it dry



Cut a tree top out of a green foam



Use a single hole punch, punch out red little 'apples' πŸ˜€



Glue the 'apples' onto the tree top



Cut a slit on both opposite sides



Insert the tree top and your toilet paper roll tree is done πŸ™‚


Thank you Victoria for the great idea πŸ˜€
