10 Awesome DIY Photo Gifts for Father's Day

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure here.

Homemade gifts aren't just a treat for moms - dads also love getting these one of a kids creations from their kids too!

I find that if I provide my kids with a little inspiration, supplies and some encouragement they can come up with the most amazing homemade gifts. Father's Day is no exception!

Quite a few years ago, when we had 3 kids I had our kids each made one letter of the word DAD on a big piece of paper. The each colored the huge letter in or made designs all over it. After they were done I took each of their pictures separately holding their "letter". I printed of the photos and put them in a three way frame that we gave to my husband for father's day. He loved it!

My kids love having their pictures taken and especially if they know it is going to become a gift for their dad. This year I've been working hard at finding some new inspiration for the upcoming Father's Day gift ideas for them to do. I thought I'd share the ideas I've found so far to help you with your Father's Day photo gifts.

#8 - Personalized LOVE Picture - Grab four sheets of blank white paper, write each letter to the word LOVE on one piece of paper (make it BIG). Then pose the kid(s) holding each letter individually or as a group. To unify the picture turn it into black and white so the letters stand out.

#9 - Scrabble Tile Picture Frame - All it takes is a shadow box frame, a good photo and Scrabble tiles to spell out your message.

#10 - Photo Bookmark - Silly poses caught on film start this project off on the right foot. After the pictures are printed and cut out around the child make sure to laminate them, hole punch a small circle at the top and attach a ribbon or tassel. For Fathers who love to read this is the perfect photo gift!
