DIY Father's Day Ideas

Father’s Day is right around the corner on June 17! Instead of spending money at big box stores, make your gift extra special by making it yourself! Here are 5 adorable ideas to get you started:

1. Paperback Wallet by Refabulous

If you’re always buying your dad a new wallet for Father’s Day, this is the perfect tutorial for you! Mix it up this year and create a wallet for your dad out of an old paperback book! You can use a book that has a cool color or design on it, or you can use his favorite book. Also, vinyl isn’t the greenest craft supply, so consider using an old shower curtain liner that you plan on replacing or something similar instead. There are so many possibilities with this project! Check out Refabulous’ site to see the full tutorial.

    This is a great idea! Obviously, though, using basic Elmer’s glue wouldn’t be right for the job because it would detach too easily. What type of adhesive would you suggest?

      I was referring to adhering to the *soup can*… sorry about that. Note to self: proofread!!! ;-)
