9 Delightful DIY Father’s Day Gifts That Will Make Dad Smile

Surprising Dad with a gift on Father’s Day is so much fun!

But what if you have a dad that already has everything? There’s not much fun in giving (or receiving) the same old boring tie or coffee mug over and over again.

Just imagine, however, the look on Dad’s face when the gift he opens is something that is custom made just for him…and nobody else has one like it!

These custom Father’s Day gifts are fun to make and easy to personalize. No matter if your Dad loves baseball, comics, or fishing, you can find something here to make his Father’s Day special.

Custom Father’s Day Gifts to Make Yourself

These DIY Photo Magnets by It Happens in a Blink are fun for the kids to make for Dad. You can customize the frames to be whatever color you like, and it’s fun to choose which pictures to put inside.

Dad can use these photos to decorate his office or attach them to the front of his tool box in the garage to remind him of his favorite kiddos!

fish-themed picture frame for dad.

For the dad who loves fishing and the outdoors, this Rustic Fish-Themed DIY Frame by Mod Podge Rocks Blog is just the thing to gift him for Father’s Day. It’s easy to create using a store-bought frame and Mod Podge.

Of course, if Dad isn’t into fishing, you can still use the method to add any other artwork to the front of the frame…football, baseball, golf, racing…it would all work!

custom made t-shirt for dad.

What father wouldn’t want a t-shirt with his kids’ cute little faces on it? This Best Dad Ever T-Shirt Tutorial by Simply Kelly Designs helps you create your very own custom shirt for dad or grandpa.

You do need to have access to photo-editing software to create this, but Kelly gives you the design right in her post. Then you only have to print and iron on the design!

For the dad who loves the look of leather accessories for his office, this Faux Leather Decoupage Frame by Mod Podge Rocks Blog is just the thing!

It’s a frugal alternative to a real leather frame, being that it’s made of paper bags! Yes, paper bags! The frame is so gorgeous, Dad will never know how much money you saved.

a personalized red cooler sitting on the grass.

If your dad loves the outdoors and often takes a cooler with him on his adventures, making him this Personalized Cooler by Condo Blues will really be appreciated.

As she notes in the tutorial, writing your name on the cooler doesn’t always last, and stenciling and painting a textured cooler is rather difficult. Lisa came up with this method to label her cooler without the use of an expensive vinyl cutting machine…and the results are awesome!

comic book themed coasters.

Is your dad or husband a comic book fan? Then he’ll love these DIY Comic Book Coasters by Mod Podge Rocks Blog.

You can personalize these coasters with his favorite characters, which he’ll enjoy the next time he’s drinking a beer and wants to keep the moisture off his side table.

a hammer with a personalized handle.

Many dads like to get creative by enjoying some woodworking, or they might have a career that involves building. That’s when this Painted Hammer by Crafts by Amanda can come in handy as a Father’s Day gift.

You can customize the handle with whatever color and message you’d like, but I happen to love the clever saying that Amanda put on her example. Dad will smile every time he uses this fun hammer.

bookends made from old photos and baseballs.

For baseball fans that also love books, these DIY Baseball Bookends by Mod Podge Rocks Blog are the perfect gift!

With their unique vintage appearance, they’ll look great on the shelf holding up Dad’s books.

protein bar bouquet.

For those dads that spend a lot of time in the gym working out, they probably don’t want to ruin all their hard work by eating a bunch of junk food on Father’s Day. That’s where this fun Protein Bar Bouquet comes in handy!

Made from craft items from the dollar store, as well as some high-quality protein bars (not from the dollar store), this festive bouquet will be something that Dad can actually use and appreciate.

Happy Father’s Day crafting…and I hope Dad loves one of these creative gifts!
