Fun Father’s Day Crafts & Bakes

Posted on June 11, 2021 by

Father’s Day is coming up next weekend and if you were planning to get crafty, you may be dismayed by the lack of choices out there. Poor dads are boxed in to liking fishing, beer, moustaches, ties and very little else! Since it’s also Pride Month, I’ve searched a little deeper and found some cute customisable ideas for young dads, cool dads, fun dads and gay dads.

Make your dad in origami with this adorable kimono boy tutorial by kamikey origami. You can really have fun with all the details and then stick it on a card. There’s a matching girl version with different options so why not add yourself too?

Books always make great gifts and you can make it more personal with an origami bookmark. Red Ted Art have all kinds of animal, food and pop culture designs so you’re sure to find something suitable.

The Silhouette Design Store has a big Father’s Day sale with 30% off everything and even if you don’t have a machine, there are fonts and clip art images you can use for cards. The 3D projects are all a bit stereotypical but the gift boxes category has some fun ideas to customise, like this accordion book box with space inside for a gift card. You could easily decorate it in your dad’s favourite colours, or to look like his favourite book.

Dads get sentimental too so photos can be a lovely gift. Make a colourful frame with this simple DIY by Noreva Projects. This makes quite a large frame but you could also use smaller pieces of paper for a wallet-sized version.

My dad is a big fan of cake and who can resist a personal mini cake? Kawaii Sweet World has a quick and easy tutorial that you can even make in an Easy Bake Oven! This has lots of different options and can be customised further with different flavours (or ready made products and mixes from the baking aisle).

For a fun project, Bakerella has a whole fast food meal that’s really made of brownies, cupcakes and sugar cookies! It even includes a free printable for the boxes and packaging. Her Oreo cookie pops are an easier option that you can decorate with your own message.

Nova’s recent swirl cookies would be great for Father’s Day too, or go next level with Rainbow Heart Cookies by Eugenie Kitchen! These are much easier than they look, but you could always do a plain red heart instead.

I hope this has given you some new ideas. We have a few other Father’s Day crafts posts in the archives including more traditional themes.
