This year I thought the boys could help me make Bryan's Fathers Day gift. That thought might have been a little premature considering my boys are 4 months and almost 2 years old. This project didn't turn out exactly as I had planned in my head, but they boys were actually involved so that's even better right :) Aren't the little hand prints so cute?
I saw this cute picture on Pinterest a few weeks ago. Then, I drilled down to where it came from and it was an Etsy Shop called Personalized Prints. She has some really cute stuff (love the wedding fingerprint tree). Her example was for a bare tree and you add your kids hand prints for the leaves. She must not have a two year old boy because this is not what happened to me. I couldn't even take a picture of it because the picture's life was on the line and I had to act quickly to save it.
I cut the tree and letters out from my Silhouette. Use tweezers for the thin paper branches and tiny letters.
I placed everything backward on a piece of scrap paper and used spray adhesive to stick the letters and tree to the paper.
Stick the tree and letters to the page. Love those pudgy little hands! He even helped me with the letters.
Get your paint ready OUTSIDE. Add those little hand prints, and good luck. Like I said I couldn't take a picture of this part, I only have two hands unfortunately.
Six very messy hands (mine included) and a few hours later, here is what we came up with...
My "2001" had a little fight with Clyde and Clyde won, so I added a thumbprint heart and wrote the year in the corner.
I used a 13"x10" frame and used white paper behind our painting.
Happy Father's Day to all of the daddy's out there. Or in our case... Happy Dadoo day (Finn came up with that name when he was about 10 months and it stuck). Have a great weekend.
We love you Dadoo xoxo
