Father’s Day Gift & Free Printable

Happy Friday guys!

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to throw a little something together to give my hubby from the kids.  I made this for his office and I am so pleased with how it turned out!

Of course, I also made this a free printable for you guys!  Woohoo for free!

I actually made several to fit your Father’s Day needs!  You can see them below.  These are 8×10 prints.  To print them you just click the one that you want which will open a new window.  Then, click print from your browser bar… Easy peasy.

Here are the FREE printables below!

Now this is super simple to throw together.

You will need to adjust your board according to size.  I had 5 handprints to fit in so mine may be a bit larger than you need 😉

I just used a piece of 1×12 white wood.  You can get this at Lowe’s in 4ft pieces for around $5.  They can cut it to the size you need for free right there!  Just ask one of the guys to help you!

I gave the whole thing 1 coat of a fav stain of mine…

After that dried I sanded the edges a bit and added the clip!  These are Tim Holtz clips I found at Hobby Lobby.  You can also find them on Amazon below!

I used Gorilla Super Glue Gel to attach it to the side of my board where the printable will hang!

Finally I had all my little cuties do their handprints in order of age with some cream colored acrylic paint.  This was the most fun part 😉 !

That’s it!  Simple but so sweet at the same time.

    Love this for Father’s Day! Is there anyway to get the “We have a hero we call him Papa” in a mirror image? I thought it would make a cute tshirt for my dad. Love you page!!

    Terrible quality photo of mine but great idea! I put this on slate we had laying around the house. I also have hanging next to it a canvas picture of my husband and our two boys. Thanks again for the awesome idea!

    can this be printed in a smaller size? like a 5×7?

  5. Mylena on June 10, 2015 at 1:10 am

    Hi there, are these printables for commercial use?
    Because I have seen these used on and in several shops/websites being sold, on woodblock and on glass for example ….
    Can someone please clarify this for me and my friends?
    Sincerely Mylena

    This printable is being sold with/on several products, in several Dutch webshops! I don’t know if thats okay? Is this for commercial use or only home use?

    Hi Whitney! This is so cute. I was wondering if there’s a chance you could make one that says “pop”? We would love to make this for my dad from the grankids for fathers day.

  8. Kelly on May 9, 2015 at 8:34 pm

    I plan on having my 4 children make this for their dad, but they also have a Godparent who they want to celebrate as well. Their God Mother and father play huge part in their lives. Very close to them. I want to make it something special so is there away for me to customize the printable or can I have you do it? They call their God Father Uncle… is there a way to private message the actual name to you?
    Thanks in advance!!

    where do you suggest taking it to get it professionally printed?

  10. ashley on July 28, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    Can I get paw paw?

  11. Michelle Durst on June 13, 2014 at 9:06 am

    what did you use to do the handprints?

  12. Michelle Durst on June 13, 2014 at 9:06 am

    Love this idea! Going to try today with my girls! Love your blog; am following now. thanks for sharing!!

  13. Kadi McVay on June 19, 2013 at 9:05 am

    Our version! Thanks for the great idea!!

  14. D Marshall on June 16, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Here is our finished version. It’s a combo of the two you posted. We used card stock in white for the phrase and glued it to the wood with spray adhesive, then nailed the corners with the furniture tacks.
    Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

  15. Elizabeth Hackman Billerman on June 15, 2013 at 7:58 am

    Hi! Would it be possible to make one for Papaw? We’re making one for my father in law and he is a Papaw. Thank you!

  16. Alexis Thompson on June 14, 2013 at 11:47 am

    I have stained mine and am anxiously waiting for it to dry so my babies can do their handprints! This is so creative, thank you so much for sharing 🙂

  17. Denise Burrridge on June 14, 2013 at 9:46 am

    Hello, Thank you so much for this. This will be my first Shanty 2 chic project. I have one question. Will a home printer print white letters or will I need to take this to a printer? TYIA

    • Brandy Nicole Shivy on June 14, 2013 at 2:07 pm

      A home printer only has black, magenta, cyan, and yellow ink. I would probably take it to a professional printer, OR it will use a lot of black ink to print this as the 8×10 size that it is, and your letters will not have ink on them and they’ll be the paper color. Hope this helps.

  18. Ana Maria Sepulveda on June 13, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    What’s the name of the fonts you used?

  19. Leigh on June 11, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    What kind of paper did you use for the message? Thanks…

  20. Heather Thomas on June 10, 2013 at 11:17 am

    is there a way we can change the name ourselves? that way we could personalize it please? thank you!!

  21. AnsiGirl on June 10, 2013 at 10:49 am

    That is amazing! I love it!! Any way you could add a printable with Boppa? Would love to make one for my dad! Thanks!

    • Natalie Mekhdjian on June 12, 2013 at 5:59 pm

      ditto for Boppa! 😉 This would be perfect from the kids to my dad. Pleeeeese

  22. Amy Bunge on June 9, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    Such a great idea. Headed out to get materials to make this for both grandpas. Thanks!

  23. Beth Young on June 7, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    Can you do one with Pop -Pop ?

  24. Jenna Morteo on June 7, 2013 at 1:35 pm

  26. Kim on June 7, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    I love it. What size board do you think i would need for 6 kids? I usually have Lowes cut my wool so I need to figure out the measurement ahead of time. Thanks.

  27. Andrea Padilla on June 7, 2013 at 9:57 am

    Me encantó!
    I loved it! I have to do this! The best part are the printables that fits to each kind of family, that’s a great idea!
