Painted Tie Gifts the Kids Can Make for Dad

Handpainted Ties for Dad

Neck ties get a bum wrap for being unoriginal gifts, but I think that these hand painted ties prove that theory wrong.  What dad wouldn’t like a custom neck tie, hand painted by his kids?  It’s the perfect DIY craft for Father’s Day, Christmas, or his birthday.

I love these ties from Living Well Spending Less.  Kids will have a blast creating their own designs, including a tie with a tracing of their hand print, or a stenciled pattern made with painter’s tape.

Handpainted Ties for DadThese crafts for kids are more than just special gift ideas.  They are beautiful keepsakes that you’ll enjoy putting in the kids’ memorabilia boxes for when they get older.  It’s the type of gift that builds happy memories for the child who makes it, as well as for the Father, or Grandfather, who receives it.

I hope you enjoy making this DIY gift with your kids.

DIY Gift Idea for Making a Mosaic Monogram

Mosaic Monogram

Father’s Day is right around the corner and you may be searching for the perfect DIY gift idea.  Today I came across this post for how to make your own mosaic monogram. This is a creative DIY gift that dad will proudly enjoy putting on display at home, or the office.

You may have guessed by the crafts that I highlight that I love mosaics.  Why?  Well, for one reason I enjoy doing mosaics because it’s like working on a big puzzle.  Put a bunch of pieces together to create the perfect design.  I also like mosaics because the pattern and design can be old fashioned, or completely modern.  Your vision can create one of a kind pieces.

I love the depth of this monogram craft and I like it even more because it was made using cardboard.  No need to spend money on a wooden initial that you get from the store.  No, go DIY all the way and create your own unique letter to use as the base for your mosaic monogram project.  Check out the complete tutorial at Suzy’s Sitcom.  I think you’ll really enjoy working on this one.
