diy // father’s day

This post is late because I forgot to post it we have a very special mister to celebrate.

I can’t go posting about his presents before he gets them, now can I?

Matilda painted him this lovely picture.  I’m sure I subconsciously got the idea off of Pinterest, but I have no memory of a specific pin. Painter’s tape, scissors to cut the letters/shapes out of said tape, card stock, finger paint, toddler fingers- done! Message credit: when asked what the painting should say my sweet girl replied “Umm, I think it should say ‘I love you.'” Gush.

One thing to note: don’t let your sweet child get too heavy on the paint, the paper can get soggy and peel off with the tape.

The watch band is an update for his Timex Weekender.  He didn’t need it, but how about that neon pop of color? $6.99 later and it feels like a new watch!

I made the wallet/phone case with some scrap leather, upholstery fabric, and 30 minutes or less at the sewing machine. I measured it out with a phone and a credit card, just be sure to leave extra room on the sides for stitching. Cut the leather, cut the fabric, stitch the fabric on three sides to the leather, fold the leather in half, stitch down each long side (don’t forget to double back for reinforcement)- done!

(Worst DIY explanation ever?!  So sorry!  I promise to take more pictures and write a better description next time. Feel free to ask questions in the comments.  xx)

Mug credit: My mister’s brother got him this amazing mug for Christmas last year.

What were your Father’s Day purchases or creations?

Happy creating! xoxo
