When you were in elementary school, your teachers probably helped facilitate some pretty awesome handmade gifts for your family members. Come December, it was time to glue painted puzzle pieces to your school photo, a creation that ultimately passed as a tree ornament. Mom got a macaroni necklace splattered with glitter. Dad got a piece of construction paper sprayed with an evergreen scent and decorated with your crayon drawings to hang on the rearview mirror. I, for one, am very grateful to my elementary school teachers for helping me look really good for these occasions. It's not too late to bring back the crafty vibes, though! There are quite a few DIY Father's Day gift ideas out there that any dad would be very grateful for — or, at the very least, amused by.
The beauty of going the DIY route is that the finished product doesn't really need to be objectively good. It's not about the craftsmanship because it's about the sentiment and the time you invested in making something totally original. Putting your own Father's Day-inspired spin on any of these projects will totally check those boxes and make Pops feel like a king on his special day.
At the very least, they'll be better than a fake car air freshener.
