8 homemade Father’s Day gifts for keen crafters

concrete fabric fathers day gift list news wood yarn

If you love to get creative with your gifts then you might find the Father’s Day Pinterest boards a little short of ideas. Whilst we love the handprint BBQ cards, footprint trophies and other cute ideas for kids to make, we found that there was very little inspiration for keen crafters who were looking to put some time and effort into their Father’s Day gift. Granted, dad’s can be hard to buy for and that still applies when making a gift from scratch, but we thought that there must be some great projects and patterns out there so we did a bit of hunting... 

Homemade Father's Day Gifts

And we are so pleased with the homemade Father’s Day gifts that we found! With a good range of crafts—from sewing, knitting and crochet to upcycling, woodworking and DIY crafting—whatever your crafty skill or interest, we hope there’s something in this selection for you to make. And let’s not forget the fathers! There’s an idea for green-fingered dads, beer drinkers, BBQ masters, trendy travellers, golf lovers and stylish dressers. Time to get Father's Day crafting...
