Top Ten Crafty Father’s Day Gifts

I received an email this morning from my friend, Robyn, explaining that she’d come to my blog looking for a crafty project that she could make with her two young sons and give to her husband for Father’s Day. She didn’t find anything.

Because I haven’t written anything.

Gift posts are tricky for me because the recipients invariably frequent my blog.

Including Joe.

So, instead of doing an illustrated tutorial to show you how I made Joe’s gift, I collected ten crafty, handmade gifts that you can make with your kids in the five days between now and Sunday.

Yes, one of them is what Grace and I made for Joe, my dad, and my father-in-law, but my lips are sealed on that issue until after Sunday.

Painted Crafts for Father’s Day

This one isn’t specifically a Father’s Day craft, but I think any dad would love to have these on his desk. Cathe from Just Something I Made! posted this self portrait project at Skip to My Lou.

Roots and Wings Co. posted an awesome tutorial for this painted canvas last year.

Another Hand Print Craft for Father’s Day

I love that Vanessa at Silly Eagle Books interviewed her young son to make a keepsake for his father.

Shrinky Dink Crafts for Father’s Day

No Time for Flash Cards posted a Shrinky Dinks keychain craft for Father’s Day, but I think the Shrinky Dinks hand craft that Allie posted earlier in the year would make a nice Father’s Day gift, too.

Recycled Father’s Day Crafts

recycled craft - coffee cozy

Craft Test Dummies will help you to make a coffee cozy out of an old necktie. That’s a cool twist on the cliche necktie for Father’s Day, in my opinion.

recycled gadget holder

Luvinthemommyhood posted a recycled tie craft last year. She used an old tie to make a case for electronic gadgets like iPods.

All They Need posted a magnetic wristband made out of an old apron. Very crafty, and very useful!
