DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Get your DIY on and make something special for dad this Father’s Day!

If your dad or spouse is difficult to buy for (like mine!) then a good DIY could be the way to go on Father’s Day! My husband doesn’t always wait around for his birthday or Father’s Day to purchase something he wants so I’m always looking for a do-it-yourself project to make.

Not all dads are made alike. They all enjoy different things. But I think I’ve rounded up a fun list where you will find at least one thing your guy will enjoy!

This super cute idea is something the kids can help make! If you dad is a builder, you cannot go wrong with a nuts and bolts canvas art!

I think superhero fever is contagious. Chances are if your little ones love superheroes, so do their parents. These free printables would be so simple to make a custom gift for dad. Just fill the jars with his favorite treats or snacks!

If dad loves the outdoors, he might just love an outdoor yard game that he can play with the family. How fun would these giant dice be to toss around?

If dad has some fancy watches he’ll want to keep them somewhere safe when he’s not wearing them. This DIY watch stand is perfect and can be easily customized for your guy!

It’s hard to find a dad that doesn’t like to grill. This sign would be fun to hang in his special spot on the patio or deck!

If dad wears a lot of ties, help him keep them organized with a DIY tie rack!

I’m infatuated with these printable glasses for dad! They scream Clark Kent to me, and would be fun to add to dad’s Father’s Day card.

Another fun gift idea for the ever handy dad. This would be fun for him to put in his “man cave,” office desk, or nightstand!

This is a brilliant DIY for a charging station for dad’s cordless drill and it’s attachments. And I doubt any dad would say no to such a brilliant and off the shelf storage idea!

Every child thinks their dad is Superman in disguise. They would love to give dad one of these adorable every day Superman pillows!

If dad is into bike riding, this is a very fun upcycle gift idea. Turn a bicycle rim into a clock for his special space!

If I was handier with the tools myself, I would definitely be building one of these wood coolers for my husband for Father’s Day. But I’m not, so I may just print the plans and see if we can make it together!

This pencil holder is perfect for dad’s desktop or work space. All the things he needs will be within easy reach!

If dad loves to grill then you cannot go wrong with DIY wood-burning planks. You can personalize them any way you like for your dad!

I love the retro vibe of these coupons for dad. Fill them out with his chores so that he can sit back and relax on Father’s Day!

Perfect for any grillmaster, this DIY apron will keep dad clean AND keep his sense of humor!

Stitch dad up a leather tool roll! It’s perfect for dads that like to build and design.

This cute “nuts” frame is perfect to decorate dad’s work space or office space with his favorite little faces!

Not only is a good DIY a unique gift that dad can’t purchase for himself, it’s also something made from the heart and you just can’t beat a gift like that!
