DIY: 6 Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts You Can Make!

Father’s Day is this Sunday, and if you’re in need of a last minute gift, we’ve got you covered! I’ve always believed that homemade gifts are the best kinds of gifts — they’re personal, made with love, and will surely be cherished forever (especially by a parent). With that in mind, here are some of our past DIY projects that dads will love!

1. DIY Egg Crate Garden

Lots of dads love gardening, and they’re sure to love this adorable egg crate garden too. Fill it up with herbs your dad loves and he’ll think of you every time he sees it growing!

2. DIY Stamped Spoon

Sweet, symbolic, and something he can always use! Personalize the message with a nickname or funny inside joke :).

3. DIY Hanging Crochet Plant Holder

Put a little succulent in one of these and you have a perfect plant for dad to hang in his office or around the house!

4. DIY Decoupage Garden Pail

These adorable garden pails are great for holding tools or kitchen utensils!

5. DIY Wood Photo Transfer

Make one of these with an old photo of you and your dad! He’ll cherish it forever.

6. DIY Personalized Envelope Liner

Personalize it, right down to the card! When he opens his card and sees a photo of you or a photo from your childhood on the inside, it will warm his heart :).

If you have any ideas you’d add to this list, share them in the comments!


  1. Greetings from france. The ideas here are very unique, and I can tell a heap of creative effort was expended.

    It was a real time saver. My dad is challenging to buy for because his style is a little bit koocky, but
    there are one or two items here that that will look awesome in his man cave.
    So well done. This gift breakdown was incredibly helpful as my papa has a heap of stuff.
    By the way it would be fantastic if a April 2014 edition of this list could be
    drafted! I better get to buying now lol. props to this blog <3
