Surprise Dad with a Crafty Gift this Father’s Day!

June 9, 2014 10:00 am

Father's Day is swiftly approaching and this year, instead of a boring old tie, "World's Best Dad" t-shirt or steakhouse dinner (although this will always, always be appreciated), ditch the usual gifts for a fun, crafty, personalized gift from the heart. Consider a custom-painted, monogrammed hammer just for dad. This bright idea, courtesy of Spoonful.com, takes inexpensive supplies, including a plain, wood-handled hammer, acrylic paints and a clear glaze, and turns them into a one-of-a-kind art piece fit for the handy man in your life. After a thorough sanding, customize the handle of the hammer with bright acyrlic paints, adding dad's initial and fun designs, then seal in your work with the glaze.

Head over to Spoonful.com for full directions, tips and details for this fun Father's Day gift idea. Whether your dad truly is Mr. Fix-It or just wishes he was, this cool, colorful craft is certain to hit the nail on the head this Father's Day.
