Easy & Sentimental Father’s Day Gift Idea

I may be a day late, but I had to share how adorable this Father’s Day gift the kids gave their daddy yesterday turned out! I found the original idea from my friend Kellie at Nest of Posies. She dressed her 3 little ones up in their dad’s shoes and hats. It was so cute!
For my boys I grabbed shoes, hats, and threw in a couple of their dad’s favorite tees, too. The shirts really show how far the boys have to go to be as big as their daddy!

The littles had a blast wearing their dad’s clothing. So much so that they didn’t even argue when I started handing out garments about who would wear what! The mini photo shoot we had was so fun to do.
I put the photo in an inexpensive plain wood frame that I could easily decorate. I painted the sides with yellow acrylic paint. Once that was dry I Mod Podged blue faux wood scrapbook paper to the front. I then sanded the edges of the frame and inked them with brown distress ink. Finally, I added the cute pre-decorated “#1 DAD” wood cutout I found at Michael’s.
The look on their daddy’s face was priceless when he opened the gift! It was definitely a big hit all around.

    What an awesome idea! It would be fun to recreate the same picture with the same tee shirts every year to see how much the boys are growing. So cute! Thank you for linking up to Family Joy Blog Link-up Party. Have a great week!
