Friday Favorites–Father’s Day, Part 1

It’s usually a little difficult to find DIY projects to make for the men in my life.  It’s not that they don’t want stuff, it’s just not usually the kind of thing I can whip up in my craft room.  For some reason, this year I’ve found tons of great projects for guys, so instead of just one Friday Favorites dedicated to Father’s Day, this is the first of two.

No one says Dad has to act all grown-up and mature all the time.  In fact, in our house we prefer he doesn’t.  Make him these Marshmallow Shooters from Mom’s Crafty Space and have some fun together.

Most dads have at least a few tools lying around.  Help him keep them organized with this Tool Tub and Tote from Sew4Home.

I love concrete used inside the house.  My kitchen counters and fireplace hearth were both made by my amazing husband from poured concrete.  These Cement Coasters from A Daily Something would coordinate nicely.  For him, of course.

I think if we were getting married now, my husband would insist on this Titanium Utility Ring from Etsy seller boonerings as his wedding ring.

We have a brand-new deck, thanks again to my hubby.  Now we need this Deck Cooler Stand from Lumberjocks.  I mean he needs it.  Not me.

We live in the country, so seeing a tractor driving down the road isn’t unusual, but my son was a little fascinated by them when he was small.  For a while, every time we’d see one he’d say “I knew my John Deere senses were tingling!”  If you’re shopping for a John Deere fan for Father’s Day, consider this John Deere Cookie Mix from Chickabug.

My husband is the BBQer in our house.  It’s not because I can’t do it, but I’m usually in the kitchen making the sides.  When I try to do both, the meat suffers.  Like, hockey puck suffers.  Make these BBQ Worthy Hanging Towels from The Silly Pearl for your outdoor chef.

I just love this Toolbox Card from Brilliant Beginnings.  The kids can color and cut out tools to put inside.

Is Dad a golfer?  Does he have a hard time keeping track of his tee times?  Probably not, but this Tee Time Plaque from Plaid is cute anyway.
