DIY Father’s Day Gifts

Father's Day

Father’s day is coming up and if you’re anything like me, you don’t have a gift or even the money to get one. Working with a college budget can be tough for any gift-giving holiday, but this year have no fear for DIY gifts are here! These homemade crafty gifts are cost efficient and sure to put a smile on your dad’s face.

Candy in a Bottle

Collect some bottles you or someone you know may be getting ready to recycle. Paint them or decorate them as you see fit. Next get 6 of your dad’s favorite candy and fill the bottles. Get a cute card and you’re all set!

Dad’s Dessert

Whether you cook up your dad’s favorite meal or go out to eat you will still need dessert! Bake a cake or a batch of your dad’s favorite cupcakes and decorate them using his favorite sport as the theme. Delicious and made specially for him!

52 Reasons Why I Love You

Most people have a deck of old playing cards lying around. This father’s day switch it up by using the cards to show your dad why he’s the best man in your life. Write a reason why you love him on each card and add cute designs to the cards to jazz it up.

Father Frame

This idea actually comes from Martha Stewart. Make a frame out of the word dad and fill it with your favorite moments with your family. It seems pretty simple and is definitely a unique gift.

Fishing Pole

Some dad’s like to spend their time fishing, especially now that it’s summer. Check out how you can make him a fishing pole. If you make two you can plan a fishing trip together and use them!

Happy crafting! Comment below with other DIY Father’s Day gift ideas!

Love Always, Pinterest

Being introduced to Pinterest was the best and worst thing that has ever happened to me. I have, however, learned how great Pinterest actually is.

1. Recipes. FEAR NO COOKING PAN! Pinterest has been proven to help turn you from Ramen Noodle Nancy to a 5 star chef in just a matter of minutes. Pinterest is full of endless amounts of fast, easy, tasty and healthy step by step instructions of recipes that will taste like a party in your mouth. It’ll be impossible to go back to eating microwave dinners after scrolling through your timeline.

CAUTION: you may possibly burn down your building in the process of attempting to be the next Betty Crocker, don’t worry your friends will thank you when they see all the cute firefighters.

2. Appearance. You can easily spruce up your dorm room with quick simple D.I.Y crafts, put together outfits for the week, and makeup/hair tips to help you look “natural” in your 9:00am class so you could catch that cutie’s eye without looking like you’re trying too hard. Who said you can’t be Fabulous on a budget?!

CAUTION: If your D.I.Y. crafts end up looking like a kindergartener’s art project…give all the credit to your roommate!

3. Dream Wedding. In the world of Pinterest, planning out every last detail to your dream wedding while you’re still single is totally normal. If you want to have the best and most memorable wedding ever you’re going to need to prepare 4,5,6 or heck maybe 10 years in advance, darling it’ s never too early. Besides who needs to pay thousands of dollars for a fancy wedding planner when you have a Pinterest account?! With the money you save from not hiring a planner you can use it for your dream honeymoon which you can also plan on Pinterest. *hint, hint*

CAUTION: Mentioning your Pinterest wedding board on the first date is not the ideal ice breaker, you may just end up walking back to campus alone.

Pinterest is the ultimate survival guide of living on a budget. You can be super hip without having to move back in with your parents. Be careful, you might get hooked.
