Father's Day Gift || DIY

Fathers Day gift DIY

For the second year in a row now, I’ve done this gift idea on Father’s Day for Steve and since it’s his favorite gift to get (I only know this because he told me) I thought I'd share! Especially after hearing over in Instagram that all of you were interested. 

 A personal slide show seems very much, like yeah Steph. I get it. Slide shows are something anyone can put together! 

However for Father's Day, I make sure to keep each photo and the overall theme focused on Steve and his girl (soon to be girls!) Along with a few other ideas to make it fun and surprising for him.  

So below are the 6 categories I set for myself in helping me deicide which photo to use and or take as it makes the entire process so much faster! Easier, and more enjoyable.

Secretly recreate 3-4 photos from last spring/summer. This could also just be done as a gift too! Side by side comparison shot.

The Details: Putting It All Together

Organize photos in order from last years June to now.
Add music
Adjust speed
Give your slide show a title
Connect slide show from computer to T.V. using a display adaptor cable
Supply tissues, lots! : )

This project takes me 1-2 hours to complete, although I already have all the images downloaded onto my computer. It's just a matter of dropping them into an album and organizing them. Hopefully this gave you idea on how to create one that can be a bit more personal, emotional, surprising, and fun!

Happy Father's Day weekend to you and your man.

Warmly, Steph

Pin now, save for later
