Patriotic Photo Frame
This Patriotic Photo Frame is perfect for the kids to make as a Memorial Day tribute and as a gift for the military serviceman for Father’s Day. Once the original purpose is served, the frame becomes a treasure for the Christmas tree year after year.
Trivia: Approximately 416,800 military personnel died in World War II. They are just a few of the many we honor on Memorial Day.
