I have had some requests for Father’s Day DIY gift ideas, since I’m still working on this year’s gift last year’s will have to do. Last year for Father’s Day the kids and I made a tie for my husband to wear to church on Sunday. It was a simple and love-filled gift that he was proud to wear.
We bought a plain white tie at a craft store, I think it was 7.99 but I always use the store 40% off coupon so it cost me less. Then I let the kids place their hands on it one at a time and I traced them with a pencil lightly. Next I traced the outline with a fabric marker in different colors. Then I wrote, “Happy Father’s Day we ❤ you 2011” on it. On the inside of the smaller end that isn’t seen when he wears it I wrote, “to: Daddy”
This gift wasn’t super expensive or super time consuming or super hard, but if you ask Eric he would say it is a priceless and a perfect Father’s Day gift 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
I love this idea-I think I’m going to steal it for Christmas! My husband is a youth pastor, too! I think we have a lot in common. 🙂 Thanks for the great idea!
