This week on Pinland Empire, Sadie gives you an idea to spoil dad and remember your trip to the beach!

Supplies:

-Old Sheet or Tarp

-Picture Frame

-Sand

-Plastic of Paris

-Water

-Cardboard

-Glue Gun

-Sea Shells or Other Decorations

Directions:

1. Cover your work surface with the sheet or tarp.

2. Take the cardboard backing off the frame and take out the glass. Throw the glass away.

3. Put the cardboard backing over the front of the frame and flip it over. This will create a nice "box" that you can then fill with sand.

4. Use a piece of cardboard to smooth the sand out level with that dip where the glass used to sit.

5. Carefully stamp each foot or handprint into the sand to make a nice impression.

6. Mix your plaster.

7. Gently and slowly pour the plaster mixture over the sand. Start in one corner and cover the whole inside of the frame.

8. Use a piece of cardboard to gently level out your mixture.

9. Let the plaster set completely.

10. Take the cardboard off the front, tip the frame over, and dust off extra sand.

11. Spray the sand with sealer.

12. Use glue gun to attach shells or decorations.
