With Father’s Day right around the corner on the 21st of June, it’s time to dive into your stash and get crafting! We’ve rounded up five great ways to show Dad, Grandad or any other special men in your life just how much you care. So what are you waiting for?
We love papercrafts here at Create and Craft, but why not try taking your special sentiment to the next level with a wood burning tool? With this, your message can be inscribed on a plaque or any piece of wood you have lying around – we used a cutting board here – to create an unforgettable gift. If you have room, add some small pegs to the board with sticky dots or superglue and attach a favourite photo.
For a unique spin on a traditional Father’s Day gift, look no further than Louise Dunbar’s personalised photo wallet. Follow the step-by-step tutorial here to make one from black cardstock. Then, decorate the wallet with a heat embossed name or sentiment and printed out photos. You can also get the kids to write a special message to their dad to fold up and pop in the pocket.
A lovingly handmade card is a must-have on Father’s Day, and these paper rosettes make fabulous flowers for a cheerful greeting for Grandad. Follow Sarah Cawood’s steps here to master rosette making, and then, decorate an MDF sentiment or die cut one from coordinating card. Sharon Callis’ Father Title Die Set (465510) is a great option.
Let the little ones get involved with Sarah Cawood’s fantastic tree design for Father’s Day. Not only is it a fun way to entertain the kids for a few hours and let them flex their creative muscles, but you’ll also end up with a loving memento for Dad to cherish forever. For the finishing touch, frame it up and add a message on the side or back.
Don’t forget to set the scene for a party with fabulous bunting for dad. The Cottage Market has a project for mini bunting here that makes for a brilliant cake topper. Simply print and cut out the tie shapes and fold them over bakers twine, adding a single bead between each tie. Or why not try taking inspiration from this mini make to create a larger version to decorate Dad’s favourite room?
