While going through a home goods catalog one day, we spotted a coaster designed to fit over the arm of a chair or a couch. We were intrigued! The concept seemed pretty simple, so we decided to try making one out of inexpensive wood pieces. With a photo and some kid-inspired decoration, this coaster frame craft makes a fantastic (and useful) Father's Day craft. This homemade Father's day gift is best suited for a slightly older child, as it involves a little bit of patience while everything dries.

What you'll need:

  • Unfinished wooden picture frame (needs to have glass or plastic piece to cover the picture)
  • One and a half inch unfinished wooden balls (packaged as doll heads usually - balls that are flat on one side)
  • Wood glue
  • Paint
  • Stickers or craft foam for decoration
  • Picture of your child
How to make your Father's Day Couch Coaster Craft:
  1. Paint the picture frame and set aside to dry.
  2. Paint 4 wooden balls and set aside to dry. This is easiest for kids to do if you tape the balls to a piece of newspaper first so they don't move. It's much less frustrating.
  3. When the pieces are dry, glue the balls to the underside of the frame. Glue one all in each corner and let dry.
  4. Put a picture in the frame.
  5. Turn the craft over and let your child decorate the front of the frame using stickers, markers, sequins, or craft foam.
