5 Father's Day DIY Ideas

5 Father's Day DIY Ideas

With Father's Day coming up on Sunday, June 17, there may be a few of us out there scrambling to come up with ideas for dad. We've compiled a list of five of our favorite projects that require few materials and can be done in an hour or less!


"Best Dad Hands Down" reclaimed wood project

This one can be done with a piece of wood or an unused cabinet door (in stock at our ReStore outlets!). You'll also need some paint, paint brushes, and a stencil (if you don't feel confident creating the letters by hand--no pun intended). You may also choose to use a primer, stain, and/or a sealant.

Here's a great beginners guide to painting wooden signs. This project is a lot of fun, because it's personalized and gets the entire family involved. You can event add paw prints for the furry members of the family!


DIY Coasters

Similar to our coaster idea for Mother's Day, make dad a set of custom coasters featuring his favorite things. You can cut out family photos, brand names, team names, or any other thing that screams "for you, dad!"

Looking for a step-by-step tutorial? Our friend Laura of LauraRadniecki.com has a great guide to make these awesome gifts.

If dad has quite a hat collection, then this might be the perfect project for you! All you need is a 1" x 4" wood plank, several old baseballs, a measuring tape,  a screwdriver, and some screws. Read the project notes in this article on remodelaholic.com.


Dad's "Stache"

What dad can resist sweet treats? Make him his own "treat stache" (stash) just for Father's Day! You can bake your own treats or buy his favorite candy to fill a jar. You'll need a jar with a lid, sweets to fill it up, and then paper, ribbon or string, and markers to finish this one!

Create a custom chair for dad to enjoy this summer! Use the step-by-step guide in our recent blog article to get started. Admittedly, this one may take more than an hour, but it's all about how personalized you want to make it.

Get creative by using dad's favorite colors, the kiddos hand prints or names, or favorite quotes. You can also use similar themes from above, like dad's favorite sports teams or brands. The customization ideas are endless!
