Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Idea

I am a last minute mom, always.  Better late than never is my motto!  Besides, I work harder and faster under pressure.  I spent a little time looking at Pinterest boards.  There were many cute Father’s Day gift ideas.  I went through my supplies and came up with this idea, handprints and a poem for Dad’s office!

It is cute, it is simple and I got it done in no time!  Just grab an old or new frame, some scrap paper, print a poem {use my 8.5 x 11 print! Fathers day printable}, some paint, double sided tape or glue, and scissors!

Cut the paper to fit the frame, print the poem + trim the paper, tape it down.

Next step is a little messy, but easy clean up!  Use a paper plate or any old plate, spread the paint around and help the kiddos make a hand print!

I added a little quote the boys gave me, I just asked them what do they love about dad? Nothing fancy, it is just handwritten by me.

Once it is dry, assemble.

I found some cute chip board pieces and ribbon to add a little more but it’s perfect even without the little details!

That’s it!  You have a great Father’s Day gift your kids will LOVE giving.  And he will be able to proudly display it on his desk at work!

Hi Detroit Mommas!!! I'm Annette Rioux, co-founder of Detroit Moms Blog. I'm a work-at-home momma raising my family in Novi. I am passionate about creating a healthy + happy life for the ones I love most in this world, my husband Joel and our 2 boys JB + JJ. I am working on getting my small creative business off the ground {annette's creation's}, I homeschool our 2 boys {age 5 + age 3}, and help run this wonderful blog {DMB}! I was given this opportunity to stay home with my family when I was laid off from my Interior Design career mid-January 20-13. I was a stressed, unhappy mom wanting more freedom in my life at the time. We made many sacrifices to do this, we work everyday to keep me home raising our family. I love design, DIY, creating a healthy lifestyle, entertaining, reading, learning, coffee and just being a MOM. I'm learning how acceptance, letting go, and choosing happiness can lead me to where I need to be.
