So, the first step is to insert your photo or artwork into the 8X10 frame.
Now, take one 8X10 piece of plywood and wood glue the other two 8X10 piece of plywood to it. You want to do this on the long side, the 10 inch side. The two new pieces of plywood should stand down on it to make it look like a table.
The two 8 inch sides should remain open.
Now, if you have access to a drill then pre drill the hole sand screws this together. If not, use one of those glues that hold like nails.
Now, once this bade is dry go ahead an paint it out in any color you want.
Let the arm chair caddy dry.
Now, use that same wood glue or tough as nails glue to attach the office supply organizers to one side of the arm chair caddy. Try to choose office supply organizers that are the right size to hold dad’s cell phone, the remote, or even pens! Glue them in a row on the one side of the arm chair caddy.
If you use metal office supply organizers, then you can screw them into place. Be sure to pre drill the holes first though!
Now, to attach the artwork on time and create a finished tray on top of the arm chair caddy all you need to do is run a thick bead of your glue around the back of the wood frame. Press it into place on top of the Father’s Day arm chair caddy.
Make sure you line the edges up with the edges and make it look professional.
Let the Father’s Day CRaft dry and you are finished! Dad can slip the arm chair caddy onto his favorite chair and keep everything he need near him and even rest a drink and bowl of chips on top!
Tip: If you want to make this arm chair caddy fit your recliner or couch arm perfectly, then measure how wide your arm is on the chair. Then measure how long. Have you wood cut to this size. You may not be able to find a frame this size, but the kids can paint anything they want on top!
