Father's Day DIY Vintage Retro Trophy for kids to make - the perfect gift!

I had my eyes peeled for the perfect vintage trophy that we could customize this year, and wowee did we luck out! This little knight was a chess trophy – and guess who’s baby daddy likes chess? It had a brass label attached to the marble in the front, but that was easily removed with a metal putty knife and some Goo Gone. Then, I let Birdie go crazy. I’m particularly fond of the lopsided “DAD” on the base. But when she asked me to mix up some brown paint for his face, I was definitely giggling to myself. I wish I’d made a video of her process – she narrated the whole thing to me like it was the Martha Stewart Show. So Precious!

Here’s to a fabulous Father’s Day Weekend for all of you – but especially the dads!
