We have such a cute and crafty idea for you to show Dad or Grandpa just how much we love them! It’s easy and inexpensive too!
Here is what you will need:
- Picture frame
- Puzzle pieces-I used a puzzle from the Dollar Store that was missing pieces! Hello recycle!
- Acrylic paints
- Craft Glue Dots® Dispenser
- Paint brushes
- Card stock in a light, neutral color
- Sentimental picture of Dad
Paint your puzzle pieces. I decided to do two projects using three colors each. Do your own thing! Have fun!
Paint the picture frame.
While paint is drying, print up a piece of the cardstock with the saying “I love you to Pieces!” along the bottom or the side. Cut to fit frame. We will be doing a reverse mat-meaning the picture sits on top of the mat.
Add your picture of Dad and put the frame together.
Using the Craft Glue Dots® Dispenser, add Glue Dots® in various locations. You can keep it simple and use a few, or layer them! Use larger puzzle pieces, as I did-or use tiny pieces from one of those crazy 5000 piece puzzles! And there you have an easy, cute, sentimental gift for Dad or Grandpa!
Glue Dots® are so easy to use, let your kids help! Grandparents love getting gifts handmade by the sweet, little hands!
Are you planning any handmade gifts for the Dads and Grandpas in your life? I would love to hear about your ideas!

Such a cute craft, and simple to do! I usually do something homemade with my girls to give to daddy- this one is definitely a possibility (and I know we have old puzzle pieces around here, lol).

This is so sweet. What a cute idea. I see a Father’s idea in the making here…
I love glue dots! I can not live with out them. They are so easy for kids to use. This is such a cute craft.

All I kept thinking the whole time I read that was … “aaaww”… Now this such a cute gift! And, best, it’s easy enough to get the kiddos to get involved and help!
I am going to have to do that one for sure!
