Last Minute Homemade Father’s Day Gifts

If you’re going to leave it til’ the 11th hour then this is your one-stop guide for last minute homemade Father’s Day presents.

For the record, we don’t mean good last minute homemade Father’s Day gifts – we mean “FAAAAAAAACK it’s Father’s Day today/tomorrow” gifts. Slightly better than a text or a gift voucher. Maybe.

When time isn’t on your side you need to harness the power of fatherly nostalgia. In other words – you gotta get ur craft on.

The Dreadful Drawing

Remember when the fridge was smothered with your “masterpieces”? It’s time to unleash that same artistic genius – ideally using nothing but crayons.

What could tug on Dad’s heart strings more than a classic sketch of you and him holding hands outside your house? Don’t forget to scrawl your ‘signature’ and dribble some mashed banana on it for extra authenticity.

PRO TIP: If you want to give your drawing that authentic “should we be worried about our child?” look, you need to make it as sinister as possible – mad colours, menacing grins, objects that look like knives, characters covered in red crayon etc.

The “Adorable” Footprint

Bit weird, but you can’t deny there’s something cute about a teeny tiny baby footprint. So what could more her-larious than giving your Dad an up-to-date version? We’d give you a full step-by-step guide, but all you have to do is paint your foot (or get someone else to do it – very relaxing) then stamp on a piece of paper. A handprint would also work – perhaps you can give him the finger? Maybe not.

PRO TIP: Put some bloody newspaper down. We didn’t.

The Pasta Shell Monstrosity

Dig out some spaghetti, pour out a jar of pasta shells and empty a bag of lentils. Cover a piece of A4 paper in PVA glue, rearrange the pasta into the vague shape of your Dad. Leave it to dry. Done.

Happy Father’s Day.

PRO TIP: Penne is good for limbs. Lentils are good for finer details. Extra points for using a piece of a Farfalle as a bow tie.

It was definitely more fun than we thought – but why not avoid all of the stress and mess and just buy your Father’s Day presents ahead of time?
