A great wooden frame for the fisherman in your family!  Have the children paint the frame, make the accessories, and add their own special touches to this great craft.

What you'll need:

  • Unfinished wooden frame (available at all craft stores)
  • Unfinished wooden fish (available at all craft stores)
  • Small thin wooden dowels
  • 18 gauge wire
  • Paint - orange, blue, light blue, light yellow
  • 3-D Paint - dark orange, dark blue
  • Paint brushes
  • Glue
  • Markers
  • A favorite picture
How to make your Fishing Frame Craft:
  • Paint the frame sky blue, the fish orange, and a wooden dowel a light yellow.  Let each dry completely. 
  • Use the 3-D paint to add details to the fins of the wooden fish.
  • Cut the wooden dowel to length (tip* a pair of kitchen shears actually works really well!).
  • Wrap an end of the wire around the top of the rod and cut a length long enough of reach across the frame and lie under where you would ultimately like to glue the fish down (tip: kitchen shears work well here too!). 
  • Glue the rod to the frame.  Stretch the wire over to where you want it to be.  Use a generous amount of glue to hold the end down and also glue the fish over top of it at the same time.  The fish will be what holds the wire in place. 
  • Paint fish around the frame in light blue and light yellow paint. 
  • Use the 3-D paint to write messages around the frame
  • Add your favorite picture to the frame to complete the craft.
