If I could choose the one thing my husband and my father have the most in common it is definitely grilling. That is why when I was thinking of something the kids could create for dad and grandpa this super cute mini grill “Grilled Love” keepsake tin was the perfect idea. Amor a la Parilla can’t get any cuter than this!
To create this Father’s Day craft here is what you need:
1-Toilet paper rolls(2- cut in half. You will only be using 3 of the halves)
2- Two Pie tins
3-Paint preferably acrylic paint
4- Foil Paper
5-Adhesive- We used glue dots
6-Paint sponge to apply your paint
1-Prepare your tins by painting them.
2-Do another coat of paint to make sure the color covers your tin completely
3-Let your freshly painted tins dry
4- Cut out pieces of foil paper long and wide enough to cover your roll. Secure it with your adhesive.
5-Make sure one side of your roll is closed off with foil. This will be the end that will adhere to your pie tin. To create legs
6- Using a strip of Foil folded a couple of times create a handle for your lid. Adhere it to the lid.
7-Using the same method for the handle, adhere handles to the bottom tin one on each side.
8-Adhere your legs to the bottom in a triangular form.
And flip it over and your’re ready to fill it up with dad’s favorites!
We used peanuts to create the illusion of coals and Marshmallows on a stick to create grilling kabobs!
All Done! Enjoy Father’s Day with your lucky guy!
Tip: This can also be a great table top piece for your next summer get together filled with condiments or silverware!
This is the perfect summer craft for kids!
