My boyfriend and I just said our goodbyes this weekend before he is deployed to Afghanistan so what better way to keep myself busy and thinking of him than decking out my new room with photographs of us and starting fun new crafts?!
I made him this picture frame for his birthday but it didn't travel well (between a 18 hour car ride and two flights).
By the time I got it to him the Army men were falling off. Here is my detailed tutorial that clearly needs to be edited http://theglobalchameleon.blogspot.com/2013/08/sunday-craft-army-men-picture-frame.html
Essentially I hot glued the army men to the picture frame and then spray painted the entire thing. It was one of those projects that I saw something similar and was like, I can do this! Didn't really think about how I could get it to hold up. So my question is...what kind of glue do you think would work best? Should I spray some kind of adhesive over the army men after they are glued down and then a coat of spray paint over? I have leftover army men so I am dying to make this picture frame this week for myself. Thanks fellow Craftsers!
