This will be my husbands very first Official Father’s Day! Last year I was still super pregnant and I’m pretty sure that we were shopping for baby furniture on Father’s Day. “Happy Father’s Day Honey, I bought myself…I mean us this amazing upholstered rocker!”
This year, I wanted to do something simple, meaningful and personalized just for him. Since Parker is too little to do crafty type things, like paint mugs or build something out of wood, I thought it might be fun (read: less stressful) to do a photo project!
I picked up a package of Sticko Brand alphabet poster size stickers at Target for just under $3.00. There are many size and color options – gold, silver, white and black, one inch, two inch, etc. I chose the largest size in black.
I got Parker dressed in a plain white onesie, crossed my fingers and wished for the best! We chose her favorite little blanket and I positioned us near a nice bright window in our living room.
First, I put the stickers directly on her onesie. I think this technique would work great for a younger baby who is more prone to not rip them off, or an older kid who can understand what exactly it is that you’re doing. Still – the photos turned out super adorable. Homemade and just how we like things around here.
Sure – she didn’t look at the camera but I love them.
I thought it might be cute to use our pictures to make a gift to print out and frame for Aaron. Using the free picstitch app on my phone, I selected and sized the photos to make a collage for him. It’s so easy to make a nice keepsake.
Next, I made her blanket our canvas!
Whatever you decide to do just make sure that you treat those daddies well this year. I cannot wait to give these to Aaron!
