- Picture box frame from The Range.
- Cans of car paint: gloss red and matt black (again grabbed from The Range).
- Epoxy resin glue.
- Access to a computer with a printer. I used photo paper.
- A cool hammer keyring thingey from Maplin.
- Bar of chocolate!
I started by taking the box frame apart:
Now for the painting. I spray-painted the back panel and the inner box edging black:
I then spray-painted the outer frame red – and I promise that this is red and not orange! The flash on my camera did strange things to the colours:
I created a textbox in Word with black fill and white text. The font is Square721 BT. To check the size of the font I printed off a test copy on plain paper first:
Once I was sure I had the dimensions correct I printed it out again, this time on fancy photo paper:
I then glued the text and the chocolate bar into place with the epoxy resin:
I drilled a small hole in the frame and mounted the hammer keyring thingey (no idea whether Maplin still have these but they look great!):
Incredibly easy and looks great on the kitchen wall.
