Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Father's Day Gift: Make A Frame!

For a relatively easy craft for Father's Day, try making a frame! He can use it at home on his dresser or at work on his desk!

You will need:
  • A wooden frame (craft stores often have for around $1-$2)
  • Wood glue (I used Gorilla Glue, not realizing it expands slightly as it dries, so you can see the glue on the frame. Hot glue might work too.)
  • Items from his workbench he won't mind you using (nuts, bolts, picture hangers, ect).

  1. On the top of the frame, paint on Dad. I had leftover craft tiles and used those. 
  2. Next, have your child glue on the workbench items (or tell you where he/she wants the items glued).
  3. Let dry completely and add a picture of your child(ren) and their dad!


  • If you have a golf lover, use golf tees, scorecards from previous golf outings, plastic golf balls, and a golf pencil.
  • If you have a fisherman, use pieces of line, some hooks, lures, and bobbers.

  • If you have a gambler, use dice, cards or mini cards, poker chips.

  • If you have a chef, use mini utensils (from a play set or from a doll house set), themed stickers.
  • If you have a hunter, target/bulls-eye and other stickers, shell cases.
  • If nothing else, you can always use office type of things around the house to make a frame.

  1. That frame turned out nicely. Will have to make one for my husband.


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
