3 Gifts for Father’s Day You Can Make Yourself!

    For Mother’s Day, we posted three DIY projects to inspire you to make a gift for your mom. With Father’s Day coming up on June 15, we thought we’d do the same for your dad! Because as much as he will love anything you give him, he probably doesn’t need another tie…right?

    In the spirit of having a little something for everyone, we searched for three projects of varying skill levels and time requirements. So whether you’re looking to really sink some energy into a project or would rather just buy Dad a gift and maybe make a card, we’ve got you covered!

    Pssst: Check out our three ideas from last year for even more inspiration!



    pop treat bag


    Super simple, but smart: acollection of “Pop” items! Soda pop (IBC Root Beer), popcorn, Pop-Tarts, and a Blow Pop lollipop. Wrap up all the items in a clear bag, add a label that you create, and tie it with a colorful ribbon.

    To make the label:

    Take a 1″ x 12″ strip of scrapbooking paper and fold it into small accordion folds. Glue the two ends together with a hot glue gun. The center part is just printed on a color printer and punched out with a scallop-circle craft punch. Flatten your accordion-folded paper into a circle and hot glue the scallop-circle label onto the center. Then just glue it onto a cute ribbon and drape it over your bag of goodies.

    homemade rosemary mint shaving cream



    • 1/3 cup shea butter (72.67 grams)
    • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil (72.05 grams)

    • 10 drops rosemary essential oil
    • 3 to 5 drops peppermint essential oil


    1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the shea butter and coconut oil, stirring until just melted. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heat-safe bowl. Add in the jojoba oil and the essential oils. Stir to mix.
    2. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill until solid. Remove from the refrigerator and whip using a hand beater or a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Spoon into an 8-ounce jar. Cover with the lid and keep in a cool, dry place.

    fathers day magnetic board


    The Photos:

    Use Sticky9 to turn your Instagram photos into cute little magnets—perfect for dressing up a magnetic board for Dad.


    • Americana Decou-Page from DecoArt
    • A sponge applicator
    • Paper (whatever fits your taste)
    • Freezer paper or something to protect your surface
    • Plastic knives (optional)
    • Magnetic memo board (The Container Store has a great one!)


    1. Place the magnetic strip on some freezer paper and lift it up on some plastic knives or whatever is handy; it just keeps the board from resting directly on the paper while you are using the Decou-Page.
    2. Cut the strips of paper into 2.5-inch strips. Because of the length of the metal strip, you may need a few sheets of paper.
    3. Apply a thin coat of Decou-Page directly onto the surface of the metal.
    4. Carefully apply the first piece of paper onto the metal and secure into place by applying another thin coat of Decou-Page onto the surface of the paper.
    5. Once you finish applying the paper, let it dry for a bit. The beautiful thing about the Decou-Page is that it dries to the touch pretty fast. However, you should still let it sit for a couple of hours before you do anything else to it, just to be safe.
