Our Father's Day Craft!

Because I'm a Facebook stalker ;) I know that my friend Katy at Katy's Creations is awesome at creating unique crafts and digital art. So after browsing Etsy for some Father's Day gift ideas, I decided that I could probably come up with my own without spending nearly the amount of money as gifts were on there (not that they are not worth it!) That is where Katy comes in! I asked if she could create a bare tree with the names of my boys underneath that I would use for an art project that would become a Father's Day gift for Bill. I saw something similar online, but didn't want to pay the ridiculous price that was being asked (call me cheap, I prefer thrifty!). She thankfully took on the task, and what she came up with was perfect!!!
The total cost of this project was $5, which was for the frame!
Most of us have paints on hand, as well as paper in our printer :).
But the end result was super cute and Bill really loved it! What do you think? Would you be interested in doing this too?

Benny had a practice page!
Finished product!!
My boys have giant hands, lol.

It's not too early to get a head start on Father's Day!
Huge thanks to Katy at Katys Creations for the help!!
Be sure to follow her blog and "like" her Facebook page, she is always
coming up with new creations and loves to do giveaways too!

I love crafts with hand prints. My husband hates that father's day is during the summer since they kids were never in school to do such crafts.

My daughter is all about the crafts so I'm going to be sure to find some cool crafts for her to do for her father this year. Thanks for the idea.

Oh my goodness, this brought back memories! I did this with my oldest daughter when she was really little. So much fun and so cute! Thanks for sharing.
