When is Father’s Day 2018?

Before you decide what crafts you are going to make your dad for Father’s Day, you need to know how much time you’ve got to play with.

This year Father’s Day falls on Sunday 17th June, which means the countdown is well and truly on!

Remember, father’s day gifts don’t just have to be for dads, they can also be for stepdads and grandads too.

Father’s Day gift ideas

Tool and stationery organisers

Are you looking to make a Father’s Day gift for an organised kind of guy? Then how about making him some stationery or tool organisers (or both).

Check out this blog post from the ‘Parents’ website which shows you one crafty way of making desk organisers.

You could also make your dad personalised stationery organisers using jars which you’ve personalised using POSCA markers.

For tool organisers, pay a visit to a store like Poundland or B&M and buy a selection of hardy clear plastic boxes in a variety of sizes. Then use your trusty POSCA markers to label them and maybe add a bit of decoration too.

We’re sure the tool organisers will come in handy in any dad or grandad’s beloved garage or shed.

DIY Scrabble tile gift ideas

How sweet is this lovely scrabble tile gift idea? These sorts of crafts are proving very popular at the moment, so instead of buying one, why not make one instead?

To make a basic piece of scrabble art all you really need is a frame, strong glue and a selection of scrabble keys (available from loads of online stores).

If you are feeling a bit brave you can add photographs and even some pen art.
