Hayden and I made this for Heath for Father’s Day last year, but I think it would be a great gift anytime of year!
It’s a super cute “Daddy Cam” which was originally posted on the blog AlphaMom.
Here’s what you need.
-Black Spray Paint or Black Acrylic Paint
-Small and Big Lids
I actually had a hard time finding the right size wood blocks. I went to Home Depot and when I gave them the measurements that AlphaMom emailed to me (4 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 3 inches thick) they weren’t able to give them to me. AlphaMom suggested asking to look in their scraps bin. I used 4×4 blocks.
I bought sandpaper and black spray paint from Michael’s and used a peanut butter jar lid for the “lens” and a lid to a 20 oz. soda bottle for the “shutter button”.
I spray painted the wood block and lids outside. After drying overnight, nail the peanut butter lid to the front of the block and the soda bottle cap to the top.
Then I just put the picture of Hayden in the “lens” and it was finished! Super cute on our bookshelf and Heath loves it!
