Father's Day D.I.Y. Picture Frame

Follow Me on Pinterest
Okay, so I know this is last minute, but that is kind of how I roll. I've been brain storming gift ideas to give to McHubby for Father's Day  for several weeks now but none of them have worked out. The other night I was in the shower, which is where I get most of my fabulous ideas, and I got to thinking about the million and one macaroni pictures frames I'd made as a kid. No, I'm not going to show you how to D.I.Y. a macaroni picture frame, but it's kind of the same thing!

Last weekend we went on a little trip to the hill country. While we there relaxing in the river I thought to have the kids fill up water bottles with small rocks and pebbles from the river bottom. I figured it would be a cool  and completely free souvenir, and they would have fun collecting. Two birds, one stone. Plus, I like free.

So back to my fabulous idea. I'm in the shower, dreaming about picture frames decorated with pasta when it came to me: River bottom pebbles + picture frame + picture from our trip = PERFECT GIFT!

I came up with this on Thursday and planned to make it on Friday. I went to the store, bought the frame (which was the only thing I had to buy! Yay!) and planned to do it during nap time that afternoon. Then, I couldn't find my darn glue gun! Long story short, my Dear Husband had to go buy me another glue gun so that I could make HIS Father's Day present. Poor guy.

So here's my point: Don't procrastinate & be prepared! Oh, and it's not too late to prepare something wonderful for the Dad in your life.

Now that the pads are burned off of my finger tips...

Honey, you are an amazing father and husband. I'd be happy to burn the tips of my fingers for you any day because I know you'll be there to make it all better. Thank you for loving us and taking care of us. Thank you for setting a good example for our children. Thank you for always striving to be the best father and husband you can be. You are doing an outstanding job. We love you to the moon and back.


How are you celebrating Father's Day?

D.I.Y. Frame

Wooden Frame (I got mine for under $2 at WalMart)
Hot Glue Gun
Items to Decorate your Frame (I used river bottom rocks)

Arrange your decor items around the frame and then glue them in place with the HOT glue gun. 

I know, pretty self explanatory, but I promised you a D.I.Y. :)
