Great DIY gifts for dad on fathers day! I’m so excited to share 6 different gift ideas even your kids can make.

#1. Transform a simple pane window into a photo holder

Choose from our new selection of Americana Déco Art Chalky Paint! It adheres to almost any surface without sanding or priming!
Directions:
  1. Tape off window pane with painters tape.
  2. Paint frame with Chalky paint 1-2 coats.
  3. Sand areas you would like to rough up to give it a weathered look or put a matt or gloss sealer over the top for a cleaner look.
  4. Place vinyl on the front of the glass by Decorating Your Life.
  5. Place 8×10 photos behind the glass and use 8 mini magnets to hold photo in place. 4 magnets on the front and 4 behind the glass for each photo.
