I am a procrastinator to a fault!
So today I started to think about Fathers Day gifts!
Every year I take a photo of the kiddos and we give him that
but I always like to give him something else too.
So I posted on facebook for ideas and a friend said "do something homemade" so I quickly
(and I mean quickly) through together a cute fathers day gift with the picture we took today.
(In the front yard as he was mowing the back yard)
Yeah I'm not much for planning!!!!
This is the picture I took.
I wanted a vintage look so I used Picmonkey.com to edit it to fade it out some.
I then went and grabbed some old wooden shingles.
We have piles laying around that the Hubs attempted to burn and I saved as many as I could!
This year he will thank me :)
I printed out the picture onto normal printer paper, nothing fancy.
I printed 2 just in case one didn't turn out!
I next tore the paper to fit the shingle.
I flipped the paper over and sprayed with a permanent spray adhesive,
making sure to get the edged good.
I then just pressed it onto the shingle and rubbed the edges down nicely.
I added some burlap to tie a bow around it.
The last step was to add to hanger.
I simply hot glued it down.
And it's done!!! I LOVE IT!!!
I can't wait to give it to him so I can hang it up!
This fathers day will be a good one.
Some great friends are coming to visit!!!
And We will have a wonderful meal with them!
The 4 year old cowgirl wants to make cupcakes to fathers day also.
It will be a special day.
What are your fathers day plans???
