ok. first, a disclaimer.
i realized last night that father's day
(how did that sneak up on me so quickly?!)
i totally thought it was NEXT sunday.
so maybe you can use
these ideas for next year!
all 3 of these projects were made using:
2 thrift store ties, and old mens shirt,
and wood and paper mache boxes purchased
at a craft store.
this first idea would actually be really
easy to pull off last-minute.
it's just a wood box (purchased at michaels)
that has been stained and adorned with a thrift store tie .
the box will also become a gift in itself, when it
is used to store the sports illustrated magazines
that will be one of my hubby's gifts this year!
this second box is another simple diy project,
but is a little more complicated than the wood box,
i started with a plain paper mache box.
an old men's shirt,
some striped grosgrain ribbon,
and another thrift store tie.
the silk tie and mens shirt were cut apart
and used to cover a the box.
the result is a fun, tailored box with a masculine feel
that can be used over and over again!
this boutonniere was created using
"leftovers" from both ties.
it's adorable on top of this gift,
so, there you have it;
three quick, simple and affordable ways to make
some pretty and unique gift boxes for dad...
that maybe you can make
