Last year for Fathers Day my little guy and I made a tie for his Dad. Although it was a little tricky to get a good hand print from a six month old, he absolutely loved it!
Supplies needed:
  • Fabric paint
  • White tie
  • Paper plate and napkins
  • Cute little feet ;)
It was pretty simple to make. I found a white tie…any light color will do. First I bought some fabric paint in a few different colors. Then I dipped my little guys chubby hands and feet in the paint and dabbed them onto a paper towel. The next step was to stamp those babies on the tie. That’s it! You can write a cute little note at the top if you’d like. Make sure to let it dry for 24 hours.
Here’s my two favorite boys in the world!
Oh how I miss that chubby little boy, he grew way too fast this past year!
So if you need a last minute Fathers Day gift, try making him a tie! If you have a couple of kids you could stamp each of their hand prints one under the other.
BTW what you ladies planning on making for Fathers Day dinner…or more importantly dessert?

    Super Cute! I wish I had thought of that last year for my husbands first Father's Day. It looks like our boys are about the same age. His feet are so big now I'm not sure they will fit on a tie, but we'll give it a try.

    I came here from your link at Tidymom's site. Really love your Father's Day tie (your *boys* are so cute)and I'm showing this to my daughter. I think her and her two girls will enjoy making this for Father's Day.

    What fun! Dd did one for Father's Day back when she was 1. He still wears it and she is turning 15 next month. Definitely a treasure!

    wow, thank you so much for posting this idea. if it wasn't so close to father's day and i had more time to find a white tie, i would so be doing this. Oh well, there's always next year. I will keep hold of the idea! Anyhoo, I'm Kelly. Found your blog today on a bloghop. Looking forward to more of your posts. Have a good weekend!

    Love the tie idea! We actually did a grandfather version; had all the grandkids do a different color thumbprint and then had their names embroderied on it! Turned out cute! Ages 19-2!
