If you have been in a uniformed service even a short amount of time, you will accumulate an impressive amount of stuff you will never use again. When you are married to a fellow Warfighter, things can get out of hand. This includes old rank insignia, old distinctive unit insignia, decorations that have worn out, old patches, etc. They migrate to a junk drawer or overflowing "memory box" to be discovered by grandchildren after you are dead.
In this instructable, we'll try to use these military and other chotchkies to decorate a picture frame so you can see these while still alive! Finally, something to do with your 37 pieces of flair!
Step 1: Stuff You Will Need
1. Military insignia. If you don't want to join the military for this instructable, you can also used those useless chockies you have from trade shows, political rallies or thrift shops.
2. A picture frame. One with a nice wide area is great.
3. Glue. Even though I'm an epoxy aficionado, I chose "Gorilla Glue" for this project because of its tendency to foam and expand. This is good for holding 3-D objects I'll be working with. Any glue that will work with non-porous to porous would be fine. If you don't like the look of the foamy glue, go with epoxy.
