Fathers' Day Gifts

Last year I made some wonderful Fathers' Day gifts, for my husband.  Unfortunately, I can't share this year's plans until after Fathers' Day!

Alphamom.com had wonderful free printables. Here's the link http://alphamom.com/family-fun/holidays/diy-fathers-day-gift-superhero-craft/ It's a chance for you to incorporate the Dad's favorite things into a really neat Father's Day care package.  I encourage you to check it out. I'd love to find another site that has something similar. It was a "Super" gift!

I made a freezer paper stencilled shirt for John. I traced the girls handprints and stencilled them on.  It says, "World's Best Dad, Hands Down!" He wears it so he must like it!

I got this idea from HowDoesShe. Here's the link: http://www.howdoesshe.com/my-favorite-things-with-2x4s

This is a canvas.  I painted the background tan with purple streaks.  I traced the girls' hands on scrapbook paper, cut them out, and Mod Podged them on the canvas. Using my Silhouette, I cut out the vinyl, "No matter how big we get we will always reach for you!" and the girls' names to go by their hands.  I then hot glued two different ribbons around the edge of the canvas to frame it. It's adorable!

I also made a photo collage.  Honestly, Walgreens was running a special for a free one and a friend told me about it so I was in!  All I needed was a frame I got for around $5 at Wal Mart.

None of these gifts were expensive.  All of these gifts were so meaningful to my husband. I hope he likes the things I've got up my sleeve this year! If you've got a great idea, please share with us. It's not too late.
