DIY for Dad: Father’s Day Crafts

DIY Bird Tie Finished

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and I’ve always found it hardest to create handmade gifts for the men in my life. Here are some projects to jumpstart your creativity this Father’s Day!

On average, we spend over $90 on Father’s Day gifts, usually at big box establishments for generic gifts. Rather than support these huge corporations, why not turn to your crafty stash and make your dad something fun and unique that he’ll treasure?

Necktie crafts are usually a safe bet for Father’s Day gifts, and of course you’ll need to whip up a handmade card to go along with your gift. Ready to get crafting?
