Does your dad like grilling, or maybe he likes golf? Whatever your dad enjoys doing, you can create the perfect Father’s Day gift ideas dad will love with items from your local lumber or craft store. Or you may have items around your house to create something dad would love to get.
My Dad Grilled Every Weekend
Growing up my dad would grill every weekend. We would spend all day on the lake having fun, and finish the day off with one of his specialties. I remember him making the best hamburgers, and bbq chicken. My dad is also a Chicago Bears fan, and so am I. Lowe’s has these awesome grilling aprons that you can get your favorite sports team embroidered on the front of them. While shopping for my dad’s Father’s day gifts, I found quite a few grilling items at Lowe’s.
The Best Grill For Dad
My husband says charcoal or nothing when it comes to grilling. Lowe’s has a huge selection of gas grills and charcoal grills. We don’t have a huge back yard, so this Weber grill is perfect for a Father’s Day gift for my husband. You can also pick up a grill cover, grilling tools, and a few other items that are perfect for a grilling basket.
Create A Grilling Board
This project is perfect for that dad that loves to grill and keep organized. You can pick up everything you need at your local lumber store, and craft store. I used a frame that I already had, but you can create a frame, or pick up an unfinished one at the store.
- Board slats (you can get these at Lowe’s)
- Unfinished picture frame 16″ x 24″ (or you can build one)
- Deco Art Vintage paint
- Drill or screw driver
- Screw in hooks
- Sponge Brushes
- Vintage bottle opener
- Be sure to purchase a picture frame the same length of your wood. Or purchase slats to work with a picture frame you already have.
- I purchased wood slats that were already cut. They measured 24″ long, 1/2″ thick, and 3″ wide.
- Paint your wood slats with one of the Vintage colors, I used blue.
- Paint your picture frame with Vintage brown.
- Using the screws, attach the slats to the backside of the picture frame.
- Screw the antique bottle opener to the top of the grilling board.
- Measure and screw the hooks into the bottom of the grilling board to hold the tools.
- You can place a frame hook on the back of the grilling board, or drill a hole in the top of the back to hang it on the wall.
Make A DIY Golf Game
Make this fun craft with items from around your home. I have a million boxes around my house, well maybe only a thousand, haha. All this quarantine ordering helps out with crafting. You can create this project with pretty much any size box, but the longer the better.
- Big box, at least 24″ long by 12″ tall, but the bigger the better
- Deco Art acrylic paint, I used red, yellow, blue, and green, but use whatever colors you have or want to use
- Sponge brush
- Paint marker
- Golf club, or a stick
- Plastic golf balls
- Cut 3 – 5 square holes in the bottom of the box, about an inch apart.
- Paint in different colors around the holes.
- Draw 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 above the holes.
- Have fun putting the balls and keeping score.
Father’s Day Coasters
I haven’t made a craft this fun in a long time. The kids are really going to get into this one, be prepared for a big mess though. This is definitely a Father’s Day gift ideas dad will love.
- Wood coasters
- Deco Art acrylic paints, at least 5 colors
- Plastic throwaway cups
- Bottle top
- Paper plates
- Place the wood coaster on top of the bottle cap that is on top of the paper plate.
- Pour each color of paint into the plastic cup, about a quarter cup each.
- Swirl the plastic cup a bit.
- Starting in the middle, pour the paint in the plastic cup onto the coaster.
- Swirl the paint around on the coaster until it is all covered.
- I like to rub the excess paint off the side of the coaster, but you don’t have to.
- Let it dry overnight, at least 24 hours.
