Father’s Day is quickly approaching, so we’ve put together the top DIY gifts you can make at home to give him the best day ever! From stamping to pyrography, whether you utilise your favourite skillset or learn a completely new technique, there’s a making type to suit everyone!
Ultimate Gift for Gardeners
If your dad loves his garden, then why not create your own hamper of gifts, from tools to simple necessities like garden twine. Display in a plant pot and personalise with your own label for an extra thoughtful finish!
Utterly Unique Handkerchief
Make a mark this Father’s Day with this classic gift. Plain cotton fabric can be transformed with stamping! Simply take a couple of your favourite designs and stamp repeatedly in equal spaces. Fold and tie with ribbon or string to complete this thoughtful handmade gift.
Thoughtful Embroidered Socks
Rethink your sock gifting with embroidery! Personalise with their initials, a few words or meaningful motif. Father’s will love this thoughtful and unique twist on an old classic!
This one’s perfect for kids! Help young children create a handprint on shrink plastic, which when heated up will shrink into adorable keyring-friendly sizes. Shrink plastic is available on Sizzix.co.uk and opens up a multitude of possibilities!
Celebrate in Style
Every successful Father’s Day should end with popping open a bottle. Personalising your own bottle opener makes the perfect gift to celebrate and can be created through pyrography. Pyrography is the art of controlled burn marks to decorate wood, which can be used to create an engraved finish which is simple to achieve. Pyrography is a fast growing trend and is great fun to try out, so you’ll love making just as much as he will love receiving!
