Melt your dad’s heart this Father’s Day with a thoughtful handmade gift — buy it straight from the artisan or choose a tutorial to make it yourself.
For the dad who has everything and wants to give back, consider this beautiful sterling silver necklace by Alison Kelley Designs for yourself and let Dad know he is your hero. Fifteen percent of the proceeds go to the David Turner Lymphoma Foundation.
Chicken Dinner with a Twist
Concrete Flower Pots
Use containers you already have to make impressive flower pots from the book Concrete Garden Projects. Perfect for dads who love getting their hands dirty.
Decorate a tile by A Dose of Paige with your dad’s favorite theme and coat it with Mod Podge to create a water-tight coaster. You might even use a newspaper clipping from that spelling bee you won or basketball tournament that your dad helped coach you for hours to prepare.
