The stunning star showed her 3.4 million followers how to make a gift which was essentially a framed ink print of each sons’ hand followed by a message they wrote using scrabble pieces.
Starting off she shared footage of Zachary covering his hand in ink and then printing it onto a piece of paper.
Captioning the image, Stacey wrote: “So every year the boys make their dads a Father’s Day frame.
“So they wanted to make this years today (don’t worry their daddy’s don’t watch my stories) so we won’t ruin the surprise”.
She then explained: “So we took out the paper that comes in the frame. Covered their hands in ink and printed it onto the paper”.
Stacey instructed fans through the next step, writing: “Then the boys glued some wooden scrabble letters onto the hand and put it back in the frame”.
Using her trademark ‘Tap to make’ method, wherein the star shares before and after shots of what she has created, Stacey revealed the finished product.
Both Leighton and Zachary had written “Love you Dad” in scrabble letters and then signed and dated the white frames.
If you are keen to follow in the former X Factor contestant’s footsteps and recreate the gift, Stacey kindly shared the details of where she bought all the components.
In regards to the white frames, she “got 5 in a pack on eBay for £18.99 so about £3.80 a frame.”
The full set of wooden scrabble letters were from Amazon and cost £5.99, and Stacey admitted that there are “LOADS left”.
Thirdly, she explained: “The ink pads you can get fro anywhere. Found this one on eBay and it’s only £1.78 can’t go wrong. “
