Simple Father’s Day Picture Frame…from Scrap Wood ((–plus, $100 Home Depot Card GIVEAWAY!!))

Father’s Day is only 4 days away……ACK, I know!  SO SOON.  I had the best of intentions to have the kids help me make Steve several gifts from the Father’s Day Gift Ideas post a few weeks ago.  Buuuuut, well, I had about 100 other things come up.  But then Home Depot asked me to participate in their Father’s Day Program and well, that got me thinking……..Steve is really into word-working lately and loves his tools.  What he’d probably really love this year more than anything else, is some new kind of drill attachment, a better funtioning tool box, some fancy blade for his monster saws, or I don’t know……some other type of man toy from our closest home improvement store, Home Depot.

 

So, yep, a gift card it is.  That way, he can pick whatever cool new gadget he wants.  And even though Steve would probably be really happy with a lonely little gift card, I had to pair it up with something.  (Maybe that’s because I don’t just want a measly little gift card, no matter the amount on the card.  I love when there’s a little thought added to gifts.)  So — I transformed a few pieces of scrap fence wood (no, we’re not building a fence….it’s just inexpensive wood that I had on hand from another project), into a little picture frame.  Showcasing his 3 most favorite little people in this world.

***And just remember, this could be a frame for anything.  Not just Father’s Day.  Just imagine how cute this would be hanging on your wall, sitting on a dresser, or up on a mantel…..with any ol’ pictures in there.

 

 

However, I had the hardest time choosing between the “sweet and cute little faces” to attach to the frame (option 1) or the “silly and crazy” ones (option 2).

So, I’m giving him both.  And Steve can swap out whatever little crazy faces he’s in the mood for……and keep his frame right on his desk at work.  (Those photos are 4×6 inches in size, trimmed down a bit on the bottom.)

If you look closely, there are just 3 horizontal pieces of wood with some strips of wood on top.  A cute 10 x 18 inch frame, made from two raggedy pieces of fencing wood.  So quick to make and VERY inexpensive……2 of my favorite things! :)

Oh, and each picture is attached by some fat roofing-type nails (that I painted black on the heads).

And yeah, because I couldn’t decide on which photo group, I just put both under each nail.  That way, Steve can decide.

Oh, and the nails aren’t hammered in all the way…..and pull in and out like a thumb tack (but stay really snug, so don’t worry!)

Yes, I’m sure Steve will treasure this frame. 

But I know he’ll REALLY love what’s on that gift card. A perfect gift for Father’s Day! :)

Oh wait, did you forget one of you gets a gift card to spend too? 

 

Yep, you can use it for a belated Father’s Day gift (because this won’t quite arrive in time for Sunday)…..or hey, use it for an upcoming birthday/anniversary/etc.  (Or use it yourself……haha!  I buy just as much at our Home Depot down the road as Steve does.

 

But if you don’t win — head to your local Home Depot (or Home Depot online for eGift Cards) and give dad what he really wants this year!

 

Simple Father's Day Frame...from Scrap Wood --- Make It and Love It

***GIVEAWAY entry down below, after the picture frame tutorial.***

EDITED:  WINNER CHOSEN!!!

 

 

 

Okay, let’s get started. 

 

Supplies:

  • Any type of 3 1/2 wide wood pieces, about 1/2 inch thick (I bought 2 6-foot pieces.)
  • black/brown acrylic paint
  • white/cream acrylic paint (Or whatever you have on hand.  I used semi-gloss creamy-white paint.  Spray paint would work too.)
  • sand paper
  • wood glue
  • nails for assembling the frame (with a smaller head)
  • 3 1-inch roofing nails (with a really large head)

 

Now, your supplies may differ a little, depending on the type of wood you buy.  But I bought 2 pieces of fencing wood (which is pretty rough and jagged at some points, but adds to the look of this distressed frame) that were 6 feet long, 3 3/8 inch wide and about 1/2 inch thick.  I cut them down to the dimensions below.

 

The three pieces on the left are for the base of the frame, the 2 pieces on the right are for the more narrow framing on the top of the frame.  But both of those will be cut in half lengthwise, creating 4 total pieces.   But in case your wood is a little different width and such……this is how I figured out those measurements.  I first decided how wide I wanted to make my frame and I decided on 18 inches (so that it would fit four 4×6 photos inside the added framing on top).  Then, I had to decide how many pieces I needed and if it would stack tall enough to fit the picture size I wanted.  When I stacked those 3 pieces together, the height was about 10.25 inches and I knew that would work, if I cut down my 4×6 pictures just a tad.  So I went with it.  And then I decided that I would stack the more narrow frame on top, about 1/2 inch from the edges.  So I cut a piece of wood that was 1 inch shorter than the length of the frame and another piece that was 1 inch shorter than the height of the frame…….which is where I got my 17 inch piece and my 9.25 inch piece.  Make sense?

IMG_5696

 

 

Okay, so with the 2 shorter pieces of wood (shown on the right in the photo above), we cut right in half lengthwise.

IMG_5701

 

 

Then, we cut each end off those 4 pieces, at a 45 degree angle (making sure you cut the 45 degree in the correct position so the pieces will fit together as a frame—see below).

IMG_5708

 

 

Here are all 4 pieces, with their ends cut off at a 45 degree angle.

IMG_5713

 

 

See how nicely they fit together?

IMG_5717

 

 

Now, line up your 3 base pieces in front of you (I kept an ever so slight crack between the 3 pieces…..just for effect).  Then, center the top frame pieces on top of that.  Add some wood glue to the back of the frame pieces and then place them right back where you had them.  Once all is glued, nail each piece in place.  (I used a nail gun, so all my nails were buried.  If you’re using a hammer and nails, just buy a small nail head and nail them right in.  This is more of a distressed look, so if your nails show a bit, don’t worry….it’ll still look great!)  Oh, and you can add more nail holes and/or dent up the wood a bit more, if desired.

IMG_5721

 

 

Now, you can either add a picture hanger to the back to be hung on the wall……or create 2 little legs for your frame to stand with on a desk/shelf/table.  Cut 2 pieces from your leftover wood that are 3.25 inches long.  Then, cut one end off at a 20 degree angle.  (Or a 70 degree angle……however you look at it!)

IMG_5724

 

 

Once you place the long edge of the wood on the table, you’ll see the angle that you cut gives the frame the perfect angle to rest against.

IMG_5725

 

 

Then place some glue along the angle of the 2 wood legs and place along the back (and bottom edge) of the frame.  Positioning can be a little tricky though, so I placed the frame halfway off the edge of a table facing up, so that I cut see where I was placing each leg.  I placed it directly below the thickest part of the frame, so I could nail through that frame that’s set on top of the base……so that the nail holes would kind of blend in with the others.  I added my first nail hole where the arrow is above and then several more behind the first, securing the rest of the leg in place.

IMG_5748

 

 

Then, I added a bit more glue to the sides of each leg, for added stability, and then let the whole thing dry completely.

IMG_5746

 

 

Okay, next…..painting.  How your frame looks is completely up to you.  You could stain, paint, or even sand it a bit and leave it alone.  However, I decided to go with a more shabby rustic look.  And I wanted a lighter frame, so that my black/white photos would show up a little better.  But before adding the white paint, I mixed some brown/black acrylic paint…

IMG_5759

 

 

…and then painted it onto all of the edges and corners of the frame.  I didn’t cover it completely because I didn’t want it too dark but mostly the areas I knew that I would be sanding later on to reveal the dark edges.

IMG_5757

 

 

Once, that was dry, I painted with a creamy white paint.  (I have some from our baseboards we’re painting.)  However, you could use more acrylic paint, some spray paint, or whatever you have on hand. :)

IMG_6187

 

 

Once that’s dry, grab some sandpaper and start roughing it up a bit, letting some of that dark paint come through.  You can now seal with some clear glaze (you can purchase it in a spray can, which is super easy to apply) or you can just leave it plain…which is what I did.

IMG_6196

 

 

Now, decide on some photos and print them out. (If you need to buy letters, you only need one “D” and one “A”, since the letters never appear in a photo at the same time.  Or, you could cut letters out of thick poster board.  Or cardboard.  Or whatever you have on hand!)

 

Oh, and 4×6 inch photos are a little too tall for this frame so I had to decide early on if I wanted to add one more piece of wood to the base and make it 4 pieces tall……but decided that would swallow up the pictures a bit.  So, I decided I would print pictures that had some empty room at the bottom that could be cut off about 3/4 of an inch.

 

Then, I used short and squatty roofing nails (with a nice big head) and nailed each picture in.  However, I only nailed them in slightly so that I could pull them out to swap pictures.  And since the nails have such a big head, they pull in and out like a thumb tack.

IMG_6201

 

 

Once I was finishing hammering the nails and positioning them just how I wanted them, I pulled them out and painted the nail head black.

IMG_6207

 

 

And that’s it!!!

 

This would be darling in any room.  Or on any shelf.  Are the ideas brewing in your head?

    Sadly, my dad passed away at the age of 60 but he was a master carpenter and I inherited his love of tools and woodworking. If he was here, I’d find a cool gadget at Home Depot that he didn’t have (a real challenge!) and attach it to a bag of Hershey Kisses! My brother inherited his amazing talent so I guess he would get the gadget and candy.

    I would make a cute little gift card holder using my Silhouette.

    Sunnie says:

    I think I would put in a basket with some other things for him

  109. 109
    DJ says:

    I would make a homemade card out of scrap paper and use those picture corners to keep the gift card in place.

  110. 110
    Laura Hinckley Burghorn says:

    I would put it in a (now empty) paint can!

  111. 111
    Rachel says:

    I’d put it in his shoes. :) ha ha

  112. 112
    Casey says:

    Great idea for Dad and summer project for the kiddos.

  113. 113
    Colleen says:

    I would try it to a screw driver set since my dad taught me to always have a screw driver set at home and in the car!

  114. 114
    Amanda H says:

    I would put it in a huge box with rocks on the bottom and a “honey-do” list (wink, wink). :)

  115. 115
    Jennifer says:

    I’d attach it to one of my two-year-old’s headbands when we do his breakfast! She’s always the first one to daddy anyhow! :)

  116. 116
    Gretchen says:

    I’d attach it to the bow tie we’re giving him :)

  117. 117
    Lauren says:

    I’d probably wrap it up in a box for denture cleaner, just for laughs!

  118. 118
    Dani M. says:

    I would use it as a bookmark in whatever book he’s currently reading, then wait to see if he notices!

  119. 119
    Brittany says:

    He would definitely use it for a drill!

  120. 120
    Brittany D says:

    Wrapping paper. I’m old school :)

    Mihla says:

    I’m giving my husband a case for his iPad, so I’d put the card inside the case.

  122. 122
    Kathryn says:

    Have our kids present it to him!

  123. 123
    Kris says:

    What a cute frame!

  124. 124
    Pippa says:

    My kids love a treasure hunt so we would leave clues to find it

  125. 125
    Lidia says:

    Oh fun! I’d make him a felt card holder.

  126. 126
    Lacey says:

    I would put it on top of the remote control in the bedroom. He has been offshore for 2 weeks so that will be where he goes after giving me and the kiddo a kiss!

  127. 127
    Misty Wotring says:

    I am not sure how I would package it. I have 5 kids so I would need to be creative.

  128. 128
    Whitney W. says:

    I would put it in a big ole stack of Father’s Day pancakes, because the daddy in this house loves pancakes!

  129. 129
    Julie H. says:

    I’m due any day now with our first child, so I’d probably put it in some sort of baby gear. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  130. 130
    Linda Cullison says:

    Really nice I know my dad would love this he would appreciate it after my grandmother passed this lasted Thursday. I know this would mean a lot to him. And the gift card too

  131. 131
    Kayla says:

    I’d wrap that baby in between some of my dad’s FAVORITE things: Bacon, otterpops, or “free foot rub” coupons!

  132. 132
    Jessica says:

    I would probably just out it in his card but have the kids give it to him. They get so excited to give gifts that it is totally contagious!

  133. 133
    Libby says:

    I’d stick it in the pocket of his work pants before he wakes up and puts them on!

  134. 134
    Lisa says:

    Hmm, I think I’d put it with a deck of playing cards and ask Dad to deal for a game of Go-Fish, or, I’d tape it to the back of his shirt (while patting his back) and to draw attention to it, ask what the heck did he get on his shirt this time (he’ll think it’s grease or oil or dirt [from working on the tractor]). :)
    Nice tutorial btw!

  135. 135
    Kristie says:

    If I gave this to my dad I would probably put it inside a package of Nutter Butters which is his favorite. If I gave it to my hubby, I would put it in a case of diet mt, dew, so he would have a fun surprise!

  136. 136
    Kathy E. says:

    I’d lay it in the top bowl, so when he goes to pull out a bowl for his daily oatmeal, he’d find it! Now that’s one way to jazz up boring ol’ oatmeal.

  137. 137
    Kelly says:

    very fun idea!

  138. 138
    Crafty Diana says:

    I would use twine and tie the frame to a box of Lucky Charms cereal- one of his favorites and he thinks of the kids as his lucky charms. :)

  139. 139
    Ariel says:

    I would have my son give it to him :)

  140. 140
    Kiersten says:

    I would probably just put it in a cute homemade card covered with our little toddler’s drawings.

  141. 141
    Brenda Rowton says:

    I would put the card in with a gift that ive already bought him.

  142. 142
    Mary Sergent says:

    I would most likely put it in a homemade card from my kids . But if I had time, I’d make a custom card that looks like a shirt and tie.

  143. 143
    Katie says:

    In a homemade card that the kids made

  144. 144
    Jill says:

    I would tape it to the mirror in the bathroom, or put it somewhere else he least expects it.

  145. 145
    Michelle says:

    I would put it in a coffee cup that has pictures of the kids on it saying worlds greatest dad.

  146. 146
    Sandy Ross says:

    I would put it with his mail to find when he gets home from the trip he’ll be on when Father’s Day occurs.

  147. 147
    Kristina Calkins says:

    I would hide it in the dutch oven since we will be camping .

  148. 148
    HS says:

    I will put it with the fishing gears we got for him as gifts.

  149. 149
    Lauren Becker says:

    Oh gosh, I love being creative…but I don’t know! Maybe get him a slightly cheaper tool box (just for fun for the gift, and not really to be used for much) and I can tape the card to the inside lid. He can open it up and see the gift card and maybe some fun chocolate or something else a little cute in the main part of the box. :)

  150. 150

    My husband loves food gifts, so I think I would tuck it in a jar of nuts or a basket of food goodies!

  151. 151
    Jennifer says:

    I would wrap it up in a little box put it beside his plate for his special Father’s Day breakfast that the kids and I make for him!

  152. 152
    Peggy says:

    I would wrap it up with his favorite treat. He would be so surprised and happy!

  153. 153
    Angela says:

    I would probably hide it somewhere like I his pillow case so when he goes to bed its there. Or we just had a baby so I could hide it in a diaper and ask him to change it!

  154. 154
    Diane says:

    The only way to wrap it would be to stick it down into a bucket of Butter Pecan Ice Cream. He would find it by early afternoon. That would be soooooo fun and he would love it. He would probably even lick the ice cream off of it ;)

  155. 155
    Becky says:

    I’d just wrap it or put it with his card. :)

  156. 156
    Amy Jones says:

    I would have our girls make a card and put the gift card in it.

  157. 157
    Kristin says:

    I’d probably have my children make him a card and put it in there.

    rachieannie says:

    wow, I have no creative ideas! but everyone else is coming up with some really great ones!!

  159. 159
    Sanica says:

    Uh. . . Not sure. My hubby is more of a computer dude. I’d love it though :)

  160. 160
    Allison R says:

    I would probably put it inside a card made by the kids. He would love a gift card to Home Depot!

  161. 161
    Cindy Dahlgren says:

    I would put it in a can of coffee or bag of licorice.

  162. 162
    Eliza says:

    It would be really cute in a card with “There’s no place like home” on the front and then “depot’ on the inside of the card.

  163. 163
    micah says:

    In a tool belt with other tools we always need but seem to get misplaced (Philips, flat head, tape measure and so on)

  164. 164
    Kelly says:

    I’m not sure but we could use it. We are moving and I’d love to build raised beds for a garden.

  165. 165
    chasity says:

    Love this picture and frame idea better than anything else I’ve found on pinterest for Father’s Day! Thank you!!

    TaeLynn says:

    For my husband? In my bra. That way he can unwrap two presents at once. ;)

  170. 170
    Charlotte says:

    I’d stick it the wrapper of a king size candy bar…Dad loves him some Hershey’s!

  171. 171
    Santiago says:

    A card made by the grandkids.

  172. 172
    Becky says:

    I’ve been wanting to make a toolbox from an altoid tin, but couldn’t think of a use for it. This would be perfect.

  173. 173
    Dani H says:

    It’s an oldie but a goodie ~ put the gift card in a tiny box (with tissue paper) which is wrapped then put into a larger box which is wrapped and put into a larger box and so on until you have at least five or six boxes inside one another to be unwrapped.

    Thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

  174. 174
    Megan lamb says:

    I’d sneak it behind one of those adorable pictures! Knowing my hubby, he wouldn’t find it for WEEKS! Ha! Btw, Is there anything you CANT do?! I’m thrilled to find a wood working post on the same blog that honed my sewing skills, knitting skills, cooking skills, decorating skills, and running skills!!! You Rock!

  175. 175
    Galia says:

    I’d put it in a nice box, next to his car keys.

  176. 176
    Stacey says:

    Well, I would for sure attach a list of things I would like him to do around the house and send him right on over to Home Depot!!!!

  177. 177
    Connie Sanders says:

  179. 179
    Brooke says:

    This would be so perfect for my husband! I can’t get him anything big this year because of different circumstances and this would be great. You’re the best!!

  180. 180
    Cathleen says:

    Maybe a gift card holder with my silhouette…

  181. 181
    JohnandHeidi Gore says:

    I would package the gift card in one of my handmade cards. Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  182. 182
    siri says:

    I would put it between pictures of his boys working with construction equipment and carpentry toys and put a note on top that says, have fun playing with your boys with a little extra cash.

  183. 183
    Kerry says:

    I would fill a mason jar with random fasteners from around the house (nuts and bolts, etc), tie a grosgrain ribbon through the card and leave with at his breakfast plate. Card to read: “we’re nuts about you, dad”

  184. 184
    Karen says:

    I would place the gift card in the pocket of the carpenter shorts that we’re giving to Dad. Thanks!

  185. 185
    Rachel S. says:

    I would probably wrap it in a box that was supposed to be something else. I am a stinker like that.

  186. 186
    Ashley C says:

    I would probably just wrap it in a big box so he doesn’t know what it is right away.

  187. 187
    Samantha C. says:

    My kids are obsessed with making bird houses, and this would be the perfect storage for a gift card!

  188. 188
    Katy C. says:

    I would put it in the bottom of a bag or box and cover it in all of his favorite snacks.

  189. 189
    Caitlyn says:

    I always handmake my cards, so that would be how I added a special touch to the gift card.

  190. 190
    Mary C. says:

    I’d make him rice crispie treats and stack them up with the card hidden in the middle. Wrapped in cellophane and a cute ribbon and let him devour his way to the gift card. :-)

  191. 191
    Elissa K says:

    I would hide card in picture frame we have for him.

  192. 192
    Tina says:

    Chocolate Cupcakes – he loves them – and let this be the decoration on top. Thanks for the tutorial!

  193. 193
    Karen McAdams says:

    I’d make a treasure hunt, and he would find it at the end of the clues!

  194. 194
    Lauren E. says:

    I would tape it to his steering wheel so when he left for work he’d find it

  195. 195
    Mackenzie says:

    I’d probably use my silhouette cameo to cut out a little gift card holder to put it in. :) Love this frame… I think I may have just found my last minute Father’s Day idea!

  196. 196
    Mindy K says:

    I’ve been seeing a cute fabric envelope sewing pattern around the web lately. I think I’d sew up a cute envelope to put the gift card in :)

  197. 197
    Mary Happymommy says:

    I would put it in a basket with candy.

  198. 198
    Jennifer says:

    I’d make an envelope out of scrapbook paper and let my two year old color and put stickers on it.

  199. 199
    Crystal says:

    My husband wants a new grill, but he is so picky I have no idea which one to get. I would get him some grilling accessories and wrap up the gift card with them so he can pick out his own grill :)

  200. 200
    Pat kelley says:

    He loves coffee, so I would have a photo printed on a coffee cup and put the card in the cup.

  201. 201
    BeckyM says:

    Hidden in a box of jelly beans!

  202. 202
    Tammy says:

    Hidden in a jar full of M&M peanuts!!

  203. 203
    Lynette says:

    I would make up a card that I have that is tool box shaped, and stick that baby inside it!

  204. 204
    Eska says:

    I would have him clean up the boys fake tool set and have it stuck inside the toolbox.

  205. 205
    Doreen says:

    In his empty Kreg jig screw box!

  206. 206
    Kathy B says:

    I would put the gift card in the pocket of a new tool belt.

  207. 207
    Patsy says:

    Love the frame and the idea!! Will definitely be making a couple of these for gifts. I would attach the gift cad to the new screwdriver I just bought him.

  208. 208
    Debbie C says:

    I would tuck it in his napkin at breakfast.

  209. 209
    Mary says:

    I’d package the gift card up with a 6-pack of my husband’s favorite local craft beer!

  210. 210
    Monica says:

    I would make a card and have our daughter give it to him with the gift card in it.

  211. 211
    Megan Adams says:

    I would package the card with a tree from the Home Depot

  212. 212
    Janelle says:

    I’d make a cute card with yard-work stuff on it… that’s the main project at our home right now, and he’s excited to spend some time working out back this summer.

  213. 213
    Ashley Outland says:

    I would put it in a basket of Father’s Day goodies and snacks! :)

    Anna says:

    I’d hide it under cookies

  217. 217
    katy says:

    I agree giving a gift card can seem like a totally lame present, but my husband loves gift cards. I am not as amazing as you are Ashley, so I would have just had one of my kids make dad a card and put it in there alongside some of his favorite treats. Ta-da! I love the frame though! Very cute.

  218. 218
    Kate says:

    Just the gift card would MAKE HIS DAY!

  219. 219
    Amanda says:

    I’d probably pair it with a frame just like you did!

  220. 220
    Lisa Bradbury says:

    I would send him on a scavenger hunt with the children making it seem more like I was asking him to finish up honey do list while getting a new clue with each finished task then SURPRISE and send him off to spend it :)

  221. 221
    Heather says:

    Either in a paper wallet or behind one of the pictures in the picture frame idea you had. The kids would make up a family treasure hunt where he could find the frame or wallet in the last clue. He has a list a mile long and always items he needs to finish projects or repair things.

  222. 222
    Kit says:

    Have the kids come up with different ways to wrap and present the frame and gift card. My husband loves gift cards.

  223. 223
    Emily says:

    I wonder if I could get my grown siblings to do a photo shoot like this! Doubt it! But the frame looks cute and you make it sound so do-able!

  224. 224
    Kerry says:

    in his coffee bag (or coffee pot!) – great giveaway and frame idea!

  225. 225
    Lisa Brown says:

    I would package it up in a cookie tin of his favorite cookies.

  226. 226
    Annie says:

    I do not have smart ideas…I will just give it with the card I will create with my kid :)

  227. 227
    Kelly D says:

    I would tuck it in some potted plants for his garden.

  228. 228
    Ashlee says:

    We’re moving this weekend so I’d put it on the fridge and see how long it takes for him to notice:)

  229. 229
    amelia says:

    I think I’d try the box in a box in a box in a box technique. My kids would love watching daddy open it that way.

  230. 230
    L says:

    No matter how I packaged it, he would be thrilled!! Still trying to work on our house (a foreclosure) and need all the help we can get. :)

  231. 231
    Kathy says:

    I would have the kids wrap it. They are the creative brains in this house!

  232. 232
    katherine says:

    i might roll it up in something boring like a pair of socks… altho, i have a feeling he’d pretty excited about some new socks!

  233. 233
    Jenny Z says:

    In a card made by our kids. =)

  234. 234
    Shannon says:

    My dad LOVES sending my kids on “treasure hunts”. I would have my kids hide it in a homemade treasure chest and then draw a map and take their Poppy on a treasure hunt! He’d be so surprised to see it’s something he can really use!!

  235. 235
    chantelle says:

    What a great tutorial! I’ll be tucking this away on a pinterest board for later reference. I’m sure it could be adapted into a great grandparents gift too. I love the giveaway too. *fingers crossed*

  236. 236
    Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I would hide it in a huge bag of chocolate!

  237. 237
    Elle says:

    I would give it to him in a tie box and wrap it up so that he thinks that he’s getting another, boring tie but then when he opens the box, it would be a surprise!

  238. 238
    CBELL says:

    Cool project! Though, I admit your confidence about how easy it is just shows my incompetence with power tools!

  239. 239
    Melissa M says:

    I would definitely package it with something sweet! Maybe inside a doughnut…

  240. 240
    Nancy G. says:

    I would put it in between some instant lottery tickets in a handmade card. He would never guess! Thanks for the chance to win, we love Home Depot

  241. 241
    Katie B says:

    Cute kid pictures in that frame is perfect!

  242. 242
    Barbara E says:

    I would hide it under his pillow. :)

  243. 243
    Jenny says:

    So Cute!! You’re so handy!

  244. 244
    Janet says:

    I would hang it from the ceiling fan, just for fun, to drive him crazy, “what’s hanging from the fan now!”

  245. 245
    tammigirl says:

    Now I’m feeling pretty much on the spot because I have not thought of a cute and clever way to give a gift card for Father’s Day.

    I’m stumped. I Think I would keep the card for myself, because I’m the project person around here, and finish caulking and painting the bookshelves I did for my husband in his office.

  246. 246
    Becca says:

    I would hide it in a jar of his favorite candy. Easy and he’d be way surprised!

  247. 247
    carolyn montgomery says:

    so cute and clever, too bad i cant saw or hammer correctly. thanks for the giveaway

  248. 248
    Denise Wilson says:

    I think the kids and I would make a scavenger hunt out of it. I would let them find a place around the house or yard to hide it. Then, we would come up with a really long set of clues, so that he has to hunt very hard… :) The kids would have a blast watching him search for it!

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  249. 249
    Rosie says:

    I would put it in a small box and then put the small box into a small crate stuffed with paper, etc. I’d nail the crate shut (not too many nails), and then tie up the crate with ribbon and tie a hammer onto the bow of the ribbon. He has to get out the nails to see find his present, but would love every minute of toil to do so!

  250. 250
    Diane N says:

    I don’t think I would get creative on the packaging…I would just place it on his breakfast tray for his yearly breakfast in bed.

  251. 251
    Robyn says:

    In the fridge? :)

  252. 252
    Ashley C says:

    Maybe packaged with some herbs or veggies! My husband loves planting veggies and herbs

  253. 253
    Annie says:

    I found a cute printable on Pinterest that says “You’re the Best “Pop”" or “We’re ‘Nuts’ About You” with accompanying soda or nuts. I would put the giftcard with that.

  254. 254
    Rachael Werth says:

    with duck tape

  255. 255
    Kenzie says:

    I would take him to Home Depot and surprise him there when we go to check out!

  256. 256
    Laura says:

    Here’s summer in my house: My husband (a teacher off for two months) says “I have to run to the hardware store really quick.” Ten minutes later, he pulls in… followed by a dump truck full of sand. That we have not previously discussed. He decided to put up our 3 year old’s kiddie pool this morning, so he figured he’d surround it with sand so she can have her own beach. I would either float that gift card in the pool… or bury it in the sand!

  257. 257
    Helena says:

    I think it would be fun to tuck into his wallet on Saturday night, then on Sunday ask him something that would involve him opening his wallet. He would be surprised to find it there among all the receipts.

  258. 258
    Chelsey says:

    We are going to be out of town for Father’s Day anyways, so a little late would be just fine! My husband has about 800 projects he’s been wanting to work on outside so this would give him a good start! :) Thanks Ashley for the chance

  259. 259
    Lesley B says:

    I would put it in a gift Baks. They are the cutest little gift card holders by an awesome company (No not me!).

  260. 260
    Rachel says:

    I would package it with a really nice card or candy bouquet.

  261. 261
    Danyelle says:

    Love the frame, but I might put the card in a toolbelt.

  262. 262
    Mandy says:

    One of our toilets needs to be fixed, so my kids and I would tape the card to the lid. Hint, hint!!! ;)

  263. 263
    Xan says:

    I’d hide it in his lunch box on a Monday morning so he would have something fun to break up a stressful day.

  264. 264

    Your creativity is matched by your confidence! I always feel like your crafts are doable because of your thorough tutorials. Of course I plan on making this great frame multiple times(not just for daddy).
    I would sneak a gift card into the pocket of the shorts he’s getting
    for father’s day.

    Lawanna says:

    I’m not super creative, but I love the ideas everyone has shared. I would probably put it in the laptop bag to surprise him when he opens it for work.

    They may have only a two-bedroom home and have the two children to
    share a space. Question #2: If I am in an auto accident should I talk to my own insurance company.

  295. 295
    Jennifer H. says:

    I’d put it in an envelope w/ his name on it… then I’d put the envelope under the sander that he has laying around on the dining room table, and then… I’d ask him to put away the sander… … !

    David says:

    I would give him a really ugly, cheap wallet that it would be inside of. He would think I got him this crappy wallet that he would be compelled to use, at least when I am around.

    I would hide it in a card for him that would be placed in the middle of our house while it is being painted and that way he can help decorate.

  306. 306

  308. 308
    Jennifer says:

    Wish I’d seen this before I spent 30 minutes wandering around the craft store looking for a rustic frame for our father’s day gift! I will definitely try this out for another project, though! Thanks for the great tutorial!

  318. 318

    My husband and I don’t do gifts for each other…for anything. But the kids do homemade gifts so that is what he expects. I would sneak it in with one of the drawings or homemade cards. Not very “creative” but would def. catch him by surprise.
