Father’s Day is only a few weeks away (June 17th), and if you’re planning to give dad a handmade gift this year, now’s a good time to get started!
Sure, it can be quicker and easier to hit the big box store for a gift, but those purchases come with a hefty carbon footprint. Chances are, your store-bought gift was made in a far off factory under questionable labor conditions. When you make something yourself, you also have total control over the components, so you can not only make something eco-friendly but create a Father’s Day gift that’s 100 percent unique!
Need some inspiration to get you started? Here are 5 DIY Father’s Day gift ideas, each with a video tutorial.
