DIY: Father's Day Gift Idea!

Father's Day is just around the corner! This will be Daniel's first Father's Day. I saw this idea on pinterest before Adeline was even born, and knew I wanted to try it. I love the way it turned out, and Adeline was in a good mood so the pictures were a lot easier to take, and turned out adorable. Of course, I am a little biased ;)
Materials Needed:
1. Letter's "D" and "A"
2. Three frames
3. Blank Canvas / Paint (optional)
4. e6000 or other strong glue

Okay, so here is what i did. I purchased the letter's "A" and "D". Spelling out D-A-D made it easier, because I only had to purchase two letters. I got these letters at Michael's for a couple dollars each. Then I got three frames at Wal-mart for only a couple dollars too. Doesn't really matter if they're cheap frames. 
 Actually, it might be better that they're cheap seeing as you need to bust off the stands anyway. :) Doing this allows you to lay them flesh against the canvas.
After you put the pictures in the frames, and break off the stands, you can work on your canvas. Lots of different options here. I opted to just paint the canvas to have a background color. You could leave it white or even paint a design!
 Okay, once you've done all that you're ready to glue the pieces together. I used e6000 glue to attach the three frames to the canvas. I lined them up and put the three pictures right up against each other.

Here is the final product! I think we're going to hang it up in daddy's office.
