Are you looking for a meaningful Fathers Day gift? This Family History Monogram could be the answer… It’s easy, original, doesn’t take a lot of time, and trendy. AND no one will have anything like it.
Our family loves the history of our ancestors, so this is a wonderful idea to share family history and family spirit.
You will need:
an empty frame
a hollow monogram
I found some of Hubby’s family history. I then copied it on aged paper. (I would never use the original)
Once my pages were copied, I tore them specifically so that our last name was shown on each piece. Clever, huh?? I mod podged them onto a poster board cut the same size as my needed frame. I painted a hollow monogram (I made my own) and attached it to the family history poster board.
I used 9001 glue to adhere the monogram and then the poster board to the frame.
Paint your frame to match your decor and/or your frame. She is looking pretty good so far!
I thought it would look nice hanging on our gallery wall, along with the grandkiddos and our parents pictures.
It finishes off the gallery wall with balance and meaning.
So, there you have it. My Family History Monogram.
I hope you make one for the Father in your life soon. It is a meaningful gift anytime of year. But, fathers are so hard to buy for, I thought this would be an ideal gift.
