fathers day crafts

Before I begin my Father’s Day crafts for the craft impaired, there are 2 things you should know:

1. There is an actual gift DIY post over on the OKC Moms Blog today that has 2 really awesome gift ideas if you are into all things DIY.

2. I’m part of the TODAY parenting team and they featured a little blurb of something I submitted to them recently.  And hey, when it comes to the TODAY show you’re allowed to get excited over a measly blurbHere is my Today Show Father’s Day blurb. I’m number 12 of 14. But it still counts, right?

Alright, back to our regularly scheduled business.

I’ve brought you Pinterest round ups for the DIY challenged before here and here so if you’ve read either of those then you are well informed that lo, I am not a pinterest mom.

However, there are some things there that are super cute, super simple, and not as likely to end up a fail.

Here is what you need to make all 3 (maybe you have this in your pantry already?)

  • Two Mason Jars
  • M&M’s
  • Soda
  • Misc. smalll candy
  • Card Stock
  • Ribbon
  • Markers/Pens

Gift in a Jar



Step 1: Get stuff (soda, candy, etc.)

Step 2: Put stuff in a jar.

Step 3: Tie ribbon & make a simple label.

Cannot mess this one up. Love.

That’s So Punny


Love this cute & simple card idea – and who’s to say it has to be a bowtie? I don’t think your husband would be mad if that was replaced with a snickers bar or a payday.

Hidden Gift Card



If gift idea 1 and gift idea 2 had a baby it would be this.  Put gift card in jar. Pour M&Ms in jar. Tie a bow. GIFT DONE.  You could do a gift card or have your kids give dad a “coupon” for a car wash or something similar.

Happy “crafting”!

    I will definitely share this article with my husband so that father and daughter can have some craft time together on father’s day. Thanks for sharing.

    These are so cute (and doable) ideas! If only my husband ate sweets! He’s one of those lucky people who just doesn’t care for sugar! I might have the kiddos do this stuff for my dad though!

    The large pop mason jar is really cute. I also like the peanut m&m’s! Great ideas!

    These are really cute and so simple! My husband is a candy freak, he would have loved this. Maybe I’ll be nice and do one anyway. 🙂
