A thoughtful Dad gift for Father’s Day, a birthday, or any time of the year. I Love You Daddy Wall Art makes the perfect gift.
While it may be a hallmark holiday, there’s something really special about Father’s Day. It’s one of those days when you can stop and acknowledge the special dads (or father figures) in your lives.
This Father’s Day, I was really excited to do something special for my husband. Unfortunately, there’s nothing he ever really wants or needs. So I’m always wracking my brain trying to figure out what to get him. Instead of buying him more things, I decided to try something a little different. What can you give the guy who doesn’t want or need anything? Love!! Lots and lots of love. It’s free (or relatively inexpensive) and you can never have too much of it.
Enough of all the mushy stuff, let’s get down to the crafty side of this gift. First, I gave my daughter a blank piece of paper. Or rather three blank pieces of paper.
For the first page, I gave her three crayons – red, orange and yellow. For the second page, she had two colours – orange and yellow. Finally, she had only one crayon to colour – yellow. She twirled and whirled the crayon creating her own pieces of art.
I scanned each hand drawn picture onto the computer. I planned on using one of them as the background. Each one added something different. In the end, I liked the simple, single colour one the most. It complimented the words, without distracting from them. In the picture above, you can see the yellow background.
With the background in place, I started adding text. Instead of using the letters F-A-T-H-E-R at the beginning of each word, I decided to use them mostly as middle letters. It felt more modern and contemporary than the acrostic poems I wrote in grade school.
Seeing how much my husband enjoyed this gift, I really wanted to share it with you. Do you know someone who’s celebrating a birthday? Father’s Day? Or a special event? You can purchase your own version with the I Love You Daddy Wall Art – Download.
