Father’s Day is just around the corner and we don’t want to presume anything, but just in case you’ve left buying a present and card a little bit late, maybe these DIYs will help. This year Father’s Day falls on Sunday 16th June and if you’re struggling for inspiration, worry no more. We’ve got some ideas that can turn this Father’s Day around from failure, to fabulous!
- Colourful kites
Just in time for warmer evenings as we approach the summer months, how about making your dear old Dad a colourful kite, like this one by Handmade Charlotte? It’s simple for small kids to make for their dad using items you’ve probably already got around the house such as paper, string and bamboo sticks. And even better, it gives you all a great excuse to go out together to fly it.
- Office-friendly attire
A stylish skinny tie makes a useful and thoughtful gift. And best of all, the DIY factor makes it even more meaningful and special. Find the details on how to make the tie on A Beautiful Mess, here.
- A thoughtful greetings card
Who wants to spend several pounds on a pre-made card, that isn’t personalised that’ll just get filed away in the bin? Dads will treasure a handmade card that’s been made with their children’s love! Click to see how to make this sweet card with step by step instructions from Crafty Morning.
- A very unique gift bag
Already got a gift sorted, but no way to carry it? It’d be remiss of us to not include a LimbO in this list. And while a waterproof protector might not be the perfect gift for most fathers, how about using it in an alternative fashion? It’s not the most conventional gift bag, but an old LimbO can make a great carry case for smaller items. Just think of it as recycling and you’re doing your bit to save the planet!
