Last Minute Gift Idea: Dominoes Anyone? Plus a Bonus Craft!!

3 Materials
With a thrift store frame, some dominoes and a hot glue gun...this gift for the old time gamer is quick and oh so easy!!
I found a wooden frame at the thrift store, and had the dominoes at home.
Because I wanted some symmetry, I had to get creative. I had only 4 orange so I put them on the corners, then planned the rest to match across the frame.
With a bit of hot glue, making sure I put the glue on the side of the domino's that toughed the wood, I glued them down. Had I had the whole set, I might have worked the numbers from 1-12 better but this was a left-over pieces/parts of an old game.
As a bonus, I had enough of black and red pieces to make a small box for my black and red bathroom. I hope to put an air furn in it soon, but for now this bit of faux foliage will do.
With adult supervision, this is a fun project for kids. If you use scabble game pieces, plastic dominoes or other frame coverings like glass nuggets, pennies or something heavy, switch to all purpose glue or glass glue/E-6000 glue. This was cheap wood on cheap wood and will be there for a long time.

Other things are heavy and won't stay on as well without something heavy duty.
