Okay, today i'm gonna show you how to make a good looking In Case of Zombies frame. We will start with a look on the material to use :
- Guns (fake...or real? :P)
- Sticky paper to print on
- a printer
Step 1: Choosing Your Accessories
First you need to choose what type of guns you will want in your frame. I didn't have any toy gun so I search on the internet and the best website I found was dealextreme.com. The website offers very cheap toy or airsoft gun. Personnally, I liked the Submachine gun (15$) and the pistol (8$). For the ammo, I didn't find anything convincing so I found on ebay a cheap "Ammo lighter" for 5$.
Step 2: Choose Your Frame
According to your accessories size you can choose a 2D frame at any stores like Walmart. With that you will have the front design and the glass.
Step 3: Make Your Own 3D Frame
I'm sorry for the lack of photos here. But what you need to do is: cut 4 pieces of wood that fits the height and width of the frame previously purchased. You will now have a square. Then, you take a tick board of wood (or other solid material) and cut it according to the dimensions of the previously made square.
Step 4: Attach Your Accessories
To attach my guns and my ammo I took some fishing line, I drilled a hole in the back board and I tied the gun in the back. I put gray tape to "solidify" the node.
To hang it on my wall I took nylon rod.
Step 5: Attach the 2D Frame
It is possible that we want to change the items inside our frame, so I used a hinge to attach my 2D frame to my "3D square". It is on top so it will not be visible
Step 6: Printing Your Warning
In Microsoft Word, I chose a font that I liked. I wrote, In case of zombies break glass, on a red background and then I printed it on my sticky paper. I applied it on
Step 7: Finish Result
An easy DIY project for everyone for cheap. You can put any guns and ammo you want. Hope you enjoyed it, any comment is welcome.
