Father’s Day Mantel

I found this way cute Father’s Day Banner Kit at Pebbles in My Pocket when I was in Utah.

It was the inspiration for my Father’s Day themed fireplace mantel.

Father’s Day is THIS SUNDAY. 🙂

I decided to add one of my husbands real ties to the frame on the right.

I got the white iron votive tree at a silent auction for a Band fundraiser this year.

The photo of DH was taken on the beach at Castaway Cay {Disney’s private island} from our Disney Cruise for my 40th Birthday.

I bought the iron bicycle decoration {Hobby Lobby} for my husband several years ago.

I thought it was perfect to add to this mantel celebrating him & the things he loves.

My daughter’s preschool {2006 to be exact} surprised all of the parents for Father’s Day.  They took photos of the kids dressed up in a suit coat, tie and hat.  It is one of my favorite photos of her!  I grabbed this photo which was in the study & added it to the mantel.

As always, I use my chalk board to write a saying that goes with the theme.

It is a favorite piece of mine I bought at a local boutique.

Make Your Own Father’s Day Tie Banner

  • It would be easy to make your own banner using paper you already have.
  • Print out this template {see below}, cut it out and trace the tie pattern onto your paper.
  • Use letter stickers or chipboard letters to spell out “I love dad” or whatever phrase you want.
  • You don’t have to, but I used eyelets for the holes.  Otherwise, use a hole punch and add your string.
  • The kit came with jute twine, but you could use any sort of string, yarn or ribbon.

My 8 year old and I did this project together.

I let her glue the letters on all by herself.

This is a great craft to do with your kids.

The Dad’s will love it!
