Mr. Pinkapotamus is A-mazing! But he is not a golf playing tie wearing kinda man... so therefore all of the traditional Father's Day decor does not fit his personality. So for him I decided to go non traditional and make some things that represent him.. TOOLS! Since he is a DIY, car fixing, motorcycle building, let's go fishing or hiking kinda Dad.
So here is my Father's Day Topiary to match his window!
So if you have a Dad or Hubby with the same interests here is how you can make one!
Small wood dowels
Nails and Screws
I started by making a template of the tools I wanted in the topiary.
Next I cut out the tools on the scrapbook paper and taped them together.
So they looked like this.
Then I taped them to wood skewers and put them into the styrofoam in the pot.
Last I used my Cricut to cut out the word DAD and hung it on the twine and tied it to the back.
Last I added all different types of nails and screws that we had in the basement to give it a finished look!
Then I placed it on the mantle next to our DAD picture window.
