As Father’s Day approaches, it is time to get the sentimental gifts started. One idea is from Michael’s. The kids trace their hands on some contact paper or card stock, then paint around the fingers and fade out. You can add differing colors to add to the fade effect. Just purchase a plain white tie, shirt, hat, etc. and decorate away!
This next idea comes from Martha Stewart. I made this last year for my father-in-law and my own father. I made the ties decorated in something they were interested in (i.e., fishing, the college they attended). It is cute and people will love how cute it is.
