DIY Paint and Peel Tape Father’s Day Gift

This week while I was browsing Facebook, I noticed Gymboree’s #FollowYourArt.  I immediately thought about how perfect it would be to share with you a quick and easy Father’s Day project as a way of showing you how our family gets creative.

Do you know why we love crafting?

  1. It gets my brain working
  2. It keeps my wild child entertained – he has soon much energy, I have to direct it somewhere!
  3. Stress reliever. I’m starting to think that it may not be cheaper than therapy when you add up all of the crafting I dabble in, but for the occasional DIYer it’s definitely cheaper than therapy ;)

On to the good stuff!!  Do you want a quick and easy DIY Father’s Day gift? I am always wracking my brain for Father’s Day gift ideas and this is one of my favorites.  You can repeat it year after year and it never gets old! (Trust me, the hubs has an entire wall in his office devoted to every father’s day card we’ve made and canvases we have painted).

Supplies:

  • Painter’s Tape or cuttable Vinyl
  • Scissors or Silhouette E-machine
  • Canvas
  • Paint brushes or foam brushes
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paper plates

Directions:

  1. Use Silhouette to cut vinyl to say #1 DAD. Apply to canvas.  OR use painter’s tape to tape #1 DAD to blank canvas.
  2. Put paint blobs on paper plate.
  3. Let wild child cover the entire canvas with whichever colors they choose. (I know, sometimes it pains me that all the colors run together and make brown, but you gotta let them do what they do).
  4. Slowly peel off tape or vinyl to reveal the #1 DAD on canvas.
  5. Tie a huge ribbon bow and gift to your kids’ favorite dad!

Fall DIY Love

Fall has arrived!  I am so glad that cooler days are among us. It’s almost Thanksgiving and that means wine; lots of wine.  My favorite hostess gift for all of our Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving festivities is a Trader Joe’s flower bunch and a nice bottle of red wine with a handmade wine bottle tag.  It says- thanks, you are special and worth the time to create a little something extra.

This DIY wine bottle tag is no exception. Its easy, but exceptional. The supplies are listed at the end of this post.  Below are the dimensions and directions.

Directions:

  1. Cut thick White card stock to 3″ x 7.5″.  Score at 3″ from top.  Fold score line.
  2. Punch 2″ circle in middle of small scored top section to make bottle neck hole.
  3. With scrap paper underneath, in the darkest color, Fresh Fig, ink and stamp 3-4 flowers making sure that parts of the sunflowers are extending off of the tag. Clean stamp and repeat in Berry Burst, clean and repeat in Crushed Curry ink.
  4. Using the flower center, stamp Crumb Cake interiors to each flower. Precision not required.
  5. Cut a piece of Berry Burst card stock to 1″ x 3″.  Stamp “the best wines” from Half Full stamp set in Versamark. Cover with Copper embossing powder, tap off excess and heat with tool until shiny. Let dry for 30 seconds.
  6. Cut 4″ Curry ribbon and scrunch and adhere to the back of 1″ Berry Burst embossed piece.  Adhere Berry Burst saying to the tag front with 4 dimensionals for added depth.
  7. Add a few faceted gold gems, hang around a bottle of your favorite red or white.
