Wire Art for Dad

In the spring, I saw this adorable string art on Pinterest. I knew I was going to have to try it at some point, but I wasn't sure what or who for.  See the original post here.

As Father's Day approached, I wracked my brain for a gift idea.  My dad isn't the easiest person to buy for, and he doesn't like me "wasting" money on him, either.  I was thinking about the hat I had given my mom for mother's day, and thought I should try making him something, too.  I got the idea to try this string art using craft wire to make it rough and manly.

For the design, I thought I'd be punny and use the words "Dad, you keep me grounded."  My sentimental thought is that he reminds me where I came from and what's important, but I used a ground screw (electrical thing) for the period in my attempt to be witty.  Below is the finished product.

I was thinking he might hang it out in the garage where he works on the cars and does other manly things.  I was wrong.  It has found it's home above his silver throne.
