Celebrate the father, caregiver, or role model in your family by making a nature inspired family portrait. Collect rocks, sticks, and other natural items from walks, hikes, the park, or your own backyard. Use the items as a simple and fun art project, or make a memorable gift by adding to a canvas, or shadowbox.



Here's what you'll need:


  • Natural objects
  • Plain white paper, parchment paper, placemat (really anything that you'd like to use as a background)


If you plan to gift or display, you'll need the following:

  • Canvas or shadowbox
  • Hot glue gun, glue dots, or adhesive of your choice. (This will also depend on the items you're using, and their weight).
