DIY Cufflinks For Dad

If your dad is anything like mine, then he’s probably not interested in any fancy expensive gifts this Sunday.  Some of the best gifts given to dad were the macaroni art you made when you were five.  A handmade gift is more personal and really comes from the heart.  But, now that you’re older you may want to step up the level of taste just a bit, not that the macaroni art wasn’t cute.  So, if the “what should I get dad for father’s day” question is still plaguing you?  Skip the shave kit or another tie, you know he’s got plenty, and try making him a gift this year.  My suggestion is a pair of cufflinks.  It’s easy to do and won’t break your bank.   

All you will need for this project is cufflink posts, you should be able to purchase these at any jewelry supply shop. I found them for a dollar a piece, some cool buttons, wire clippers, and E-6000 craft glue   I chose 4 different styles to create a variety of looks.  I like to cover my basis.  They range from casual with a leather button  to business with a gold and black glass button and a gold crest to very dressy with a rhinestone , for dads who are into a little blingAll of these buttons can be found online.  All you need to do is remove the loop from the back of your buttons and glue the cufflink post to the back.  When purchasing buttons for this project be sure to purchase shank buttons only.  I hope this has helped some of you.  Please share with us some of your creative personalized gifts for dad.

Father’s Day Ideas

Dad

Father’s day is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about a creative Father’s day gift.  If you haven’t decided what you want to give your Dad yet, then this post is for you. 

 You can easily customize something especially for him.  There’s no one else out there like your Dad and there’s definitely only one of him.  So why not customize something unique that’s just for him?

It’ll definitely bring you back to those elementary days when you use to handcraft a gift for him at school.  Create something useful for him like a belt.  They’re easy to make with leather trims and your choice of buckles. 

 Another good idea is to add a bullion crest onto a baseball cap for him.  He’ll need one in this hot summer weather.  Good luck and keep checking back for some more fun ideas for Father’s day.
