I kind of cringe when it comes to making crafts for certain holidays. Sometimes they just look too…crafty! So crafty, in fact, that they end up in a closet never to be seen again, and are never tossed out because of “sentimental value.” Father’s day is one of these holidays. It’s so easy to make a craft for Dad that won’t be used, but then again, it’s thoughtful and sweet to make a homemade gift. So how to celebrate him? I scoured the Internet looking for some ideas that would be fun and useful. Here they are:

  1. Father’s Day bow tie card. You can bet that this bow tie card from Mer Mag won’t be tossed! It’s too cute for that! With a free printable and some cute paper, you can make a useable bow tie that kids will love to give to their dads.
  2. Charcuterie set. This is one that I think dads (meat-eating dads that is) will love! Put together some of their favorite meats. I’m sure it will be a welcomed gift!
  3. Letter office supplies holders. These cute office supplies holders made from clay are practical and clever. Make one in the monogram of his name for a personalized touch!
  4. Dad glasses. This one is more fun than anything else. Though I’m sure Dad won’t be walking around town sporting his new shades, it’s a fun Father’s Day craft to add to a present.

  1. Hardware store garland. This garland made from items from a hardware store is the perfect touch of décor for Father’s Day. And you can even use it from year to year—score!
  2. Mustache glass. We have seen the mustache trend for the last number of years, but I love how classy this mustache glass turned out. It would be great to add to his office.
  3. BBQ DIY apron. This apron for the grill-lover is sweet and manly. I’d love to wear it too!

Do you prefer to make or buy gifts for Father’s Day?
