Whatever Wednesday: Father's Day Ideas

With Father's Day coming up, I thought I was post about some of the things that I have done for my husband in the past.

I made this shirt for him 3 years ago. I used paint but I think that now I would trace their hands on fabric and then put it on the shirt like that.

This was actually a graduation gift, it's up in his office. But you can use it for Father's Day. This actually took two photo shoots and over 200 pictures to get!

I made this photo box last year, it's packed full of fun photos of my boys!!

AWWW!! I love that picture of you guys holding the "We love you" signs. How precious. I seriously might have to steal that idea. I have no idea who will take the photos for me, lol, but I'll figure something out. Maybe my sis can do it. Thanks for all the great ideas!

I love that t-shirt, how adorable did that turn out?!? We did something similar for my in-laws awhile back, but we used footprints instead.

I love them all, but especially the "we love you" photos in the middle. This would be great for their dad, or for the grandparents!
