We find so many crafts that are just precious. I am so glad to find a craft that is a little rough around the edges and one that my son will enjoy making. He loves cars and I am betting other boys out there will dig this craft as well. This amazing upcycled hot wheels cars picture frame idea will be great for gifts this season or to decorate your kid’s room.

I mean really, all you need is a few supplies that you may already have at home – and some hot wheels that your son doesn’t use. I know boy rooms are full of them in some area or another. You might even step on them now and again. I guess they are better than stepping on LEGOs for sure.

You will need:

  • 8×10 picture frame
  • Approximately 12 hot wheels cars
  • Hot glue
  • Rustoleum Spray Paint
