If your momma is a lady who can never have enough bags, then this DIY gift idea is for you! Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling was loving the look of a striped, gold tipped tote from West Elm and recreated it with one of my favorite mediums – good ol’ paint! You can easily customize your bag with Mom’s favorite colors, and Amy says Hobby Lobby sells a variety of bag styles to meet any need. Mom will never guess it only cost $8 to make!
Whether it’s a counter, dresser, or table, most men like to have a designated spot to keep their keys, wallet, and phone. Why not add some style to that tried-and-true spot with a DIY leather valet? Dabney, whose husband enjoys working with leather, shares at Apartment Therapy how easy it is to make your own valet with basically just an X-acto knife and rivets. Dad will love the functionality of it, and what says manly like leather?!?
If you’ve been around any of my sites, you know I come from a game-loving family. So when I came across the idea for a giant Jenga game, I was instantly sold. Emma from A Beautiful Mess felt the same way after playing for the first time at a friend’s house and immediately came home to build her own set. As she says, it is a pretty easy and inexpensive project – just cut some boards, sand them smooth, and then paint them if you want to. This would be a gift that keeps giving for Dad as your family enjoys giant Jenga competitions outside all summer long!
