Father’s Day is literally around corner, but don’t worry you still have time to sort something out. In my opinion, Homemade Father’s Day Cards and Gifts are the best. They have an extra special factor that you simply can not buy from the shop. So in the run up to Father’s Day I thought I would share with you a round up of some simple ideas for Homemade Father’s Day Cards and Gifts from my fellow bloggers.

Homemade Father’s Day Card Ideas

Even if your not a gift person, most will get a Father’s Day card. A homemade Father’s Day card is always so special, not just because of the extra thought that has gone into it, but also because it serves as a permanent memento of your kid’s childhood. Some of my most treasured possessions are cards made for me by the children, in all their imperfect perfectness.

Cards made with children’s hand or foot prints are particular good. Not only are they a thoughtful memento, but they also capture a moment in time. Never again will your child’s feet or hands be that tiny.  You can incorporate hand and foot prints into lots of different designs.

Jules at Pondering Parenthood has used her little one’s footprint to make this fun trophy card for Father’s Day.

 

 

Or you could turn a footprint into this fab Superhero card by Messy Little Monster, head over to the blog to get the FREE printable!

 

 

If you want to move away from hand and foot prints, what about a Medal Father’s Day card by Crafts by the Sea. Easy to put together, and what Daddy wouldn’t want to recieve it.

 

 

I love this fab Paper Award Ribbon from Easy Peasy Fun. Not technically a card, but it is a paper craft and could easily be adapted for a Father’s Day card.

So simple, but looks really effective!

 

 

Homemade Father’s Day Gifts

You can extend the use of handprints to gifts as well as cards, like this personlaised handprint bag from The Gingerbread House.

 

 

Or what about this fabulous Super Hero coaster set made with handprints from Messy Little Monster. I love this idea!

 

 

Older children with bigger hands could make this Clay Thumbprint Keepsake from Hodge Podge Days. Such a lovely gift and keepsake.

 

 

Homemade scrabble art also makes a great present for all occasions, simple but very effective. Check out this tutorial for this fab DIY Father’s Day gift over at Emma Reed.

 

 

Or you can use scrabble letters in other ways, like this personliased Father’s Day frame by The Gingerbread House.

 

 

An alternative picture idea is this Framed Personalised Print by The Diary of a Frugal Family which you customise with different colours and your own words using their FREE poster maker, I think I may have to give this a go!

 

 

If pictures aren’t his thing, what about books? I love the idea of producing a little story or book about Daddy, made even more special if it is written and illustarted by the children.  This idea has been taken one step further over at The Money Whisperer, where not only did the children create their homemade story book, but they replaced some of the words with well known chocolate bars and little gifts. Such an awesome idea!

If all that hasn’t given you enough ideas, then you can always try this really Simple Homemade Father’s Day Gift that we did last year, I’ve even included FREE printables to make it even simpler for you.

 

 

Whatever you decide to make and give, I’m sure they will be treasured forever.  I wish all the Daddy’s out there a very happy Father’s Day.
