3-D Picture Frame

Materials

  1. Paper grocery bag
  2. Coat hanger
  3. 9" x 12" photo of child or other family member (could also use a piece of your child's artwork)

Directions

Turn paper bag upside down. Cut a square or round opening in the bag about a foot down from the base. Cut another small hole in the center of the base to hang the hanger on. Tape the photo to the inside of the larger opening and check to see that it is visible and lined up. Take the coat hanger and put it inside the bag. Pull the curved handle through the smaller hole and hang the three-dimensional frame somewhere where it can be seen.
