Father's Day Craft Ideas & Homemade Gifts Kids can Make for Dad
Want to surprise Dad with something that you created this Father's Day? Even if you're not the artsy type, there is always the option of adding a personal touch to something unique.
Here are a few Father's Day craft ideas that will surely make a special gift for Dad.
You could personalize a cap for Dad in a matter of minutes. Start with a plain colored cap and either buy individual pre-cut fabric letters or cut them out yourself using felt. Spell out things like "Super Dad," "#1 Dad," "Top Dad" and "Best Dad." Make sure your letters will all fit on the cap and then glue them in place with fabric glue. Most craft stores will sell iron - on patches, so have a look at the selection to see what inspires you and either add them to your slogan or decorate an entire cap using one or more iron-on patches.
Sentimental Photo Décor
If your dad is a shutterbug, there is a whole host of things that will get your creative juices flowing at the craft store. Many sell unfinished photo frames that you can decorate yourself. Dad would likely love one with a family picture in it. You can paint the frame and then decorate it by gluing memorabilia or ephemera to it. Use your imagination — bottle caps, sea shells you collected on a family trip to the beach or even twigs. This is a great gift for a father that loves nature. But if gluing doesn't sound like fun, try making sentimental easel art or canvas prints online at Treat.com. Customizing home décor on the computer is not only convenient, it's also an incredibly easy and personal way to surprise Dad on his special day. So after you finish creating a special Father's Day card, be sure to check out some of our customizable photo gifts.
Personalized Paper Weight
For something fun and useful for the office, why not make Dad a rock paperweight? Find a rock with a smooth surface, about the size of a bar of soap. Make sure it has a flat side so it won't wobble. Wash the rock off and when it's completely dry, use acrylic paints or magic markers to decorate it. Write “Dad” on it or get creative with swirls and abstract patterns.
Custom Coffee Mug
For dads that like their morning tea or coffee, a customizable mug is just the thing. Simply choose your favorite design on treat.com and then add your own photos and a thoughtful saying. And there's absolutely no doubt that Dad will love looking at all the sweet photos of his family on that custom mug as he sips his morning coffee.
