Follow this quick and easy tutorial for how to make soundwave art plus create an adorable DIY Father’s Day Gift idea – I love you Soundwave Art Generator craft for kids. The best father’s day gift yet!
We have been so blessed to have some of the most amazing preschool teachers! While I have loved every mother’s day (and father’s day gift) my children have created, this years gifts for parents have knocked some other’s out of the park.
For a preschool mother’s day gift, I got adorable photo holders made out of beads and a painted rock. For a preschool Father’s day craft, my husband got the most adorable I Love You Soundwave Art Craft.
How to make soundwave art
It is very easy to make your own soundwave art. I was surprised by how remarkably quick it was with no instruction.
First, open the voice recorder app on your cell phone. Record an I love you memo. If you are an educator (preschool or elementary school), save each file as the child’s name so you can easily identify who is who when creating your soundwave pattern.
How do I get soundwaves from a recording?
Once you have your personalized recording, you want to use a free soundwave art generator. How do you do sound wave art? I looked at a few soundwaves generators, but I found https://convert.ing-now.com to be incredibly easy and straight forward.
Soundwave Graphic Generator
1.) Visit the free soundwave art generator.
2.) Select the circle button, let’s go.
3.) Upload your sound recording.
4.) Choose your foreground color and wavelength size (I chose black and 1800 x 280.)
5.) Click the okay button to generator your soundwave art.
6.) Right click on the soundwave art image and download your I love you soundwave pattern.
I Love You Soundwave Art DIY
Once you’ve created your I love you sound wave art generator, it’s time for a fun father’s day preschool craft (or elementary and older kids too!)
How do you do sound wave art?
- I Love You Soundwave Art

- Printer (or print at Staples)
How do soundwave gifts work? Once you have your your personalized sound wave art, it’s time to print the pattern.
First follow the steps above to create a voice memo recording converted to a to sound wave file (png, jpeg, etc.)
Open Microsoft Word and rotate your new document to a landscape design.
Write the phrase “I love you” in the center of the document.
Paste below the phrase, your soundwave file.
Print on cardstock and cut into the shape of a heart.
Using markers or paint (we like Do A Dot Art! Marker Paints) allows your child to color the heart.
Allow the heart to dry.
Once the painted heart is dry, laminate your painted heart sound wave art DIY.
Gift to dad as a DIY Father’s Day craft to keep forever!
Can You Play Soundwave Art?
Do you want to take this a step further? In our memorial crafts for loved ones, I shared one way to play soundwave art. You would basically need a QR code to create soundwave art that plays. A QR code is a pixelated number of black squares and dots that form a square. When scanned with a camera app it opens a browser or browser that holds the sound recording.
Can you play soundwave art? Yes – create a soundwave with a QR code! For this process, you will either purchase a soundwave QR code or create your own URL to hold your recording. Once you have the URL with your sound recording, you can quickly create a QR code on QR-Tiger. If your voice memo is a MP3, you can also upload this on QR Tiger.
Our Pinterest community and I would love to see how this worked out for you. Share your sound wave art block or final DIY Father’s Day Soundwave Craft. Leave a comment and/or add a photo here on Pinterest!
