We are always trying to come up with handmade gift ideas for Dads that they will actually use! We have made all sorts of things in the past – like homemade salsa with a printable label and a decorative sailboat. Every June, we also have the kids fill out a Father’s Day Printable (or this one too). This adds a special heartfelt message from the kids to dad. They fill out a questionnaire about their dad. They are so fun to look back on year after year. It is a riot to see how the kid’s handwriting, drawings and opinions and answers about dad change over time. Such an amazing memory!
This year we made a DIY Father’s Day Leather Keychain that Dad will be sure to use!
See our DIY video on the Darby Smart for the full tutorial!
We love to use Brass clasps/keychains for handmade keychains. You can find them at the hardware store or amazon. We used the same clasps for the rope tassel keychains. I still use that keychain everyday and I swear – that clasps has saved me from losing my keys countless times. So, save dad from losing his keys and whip up one of these DIY Leather Keychains!
