DIY Gift ideas for Dad This Father’s day

Taking a little time to make a gift for Dad is bound to make him feel good. Not only is the gift unique, but spending time on someone else always goes down well. As coming up with good ideas can be tricky, we’ve created some craft gift ideas and recipes to get you started.

Bottle bouquet

Crafty children can decorate some of dad’s favourite bottles to make a vase of flowers with a refreshing centre. We’ve even designed a stencil for the flower patterns which you can download by clicking button below and print at home.

What you’ll need 

  • Our printable flower and leaf pattern stencils (download below)
  • Scissors
  • Coloured paper (including green for leaves and bright colours for flowers)
  • Four or six pack of beer, cider or soft-drinks (we used Estrella Damm Premium Lager for the box shape, if not just put the bottles in a spare cardboard box)
  • Sellotape
  • Wrapping paper
  • Tissue paper (shades of green for the leaves)


  1. Print and cut out flower and leaf shapes using our downloadable patterns. You can then use these as stencils to draw and cut around.
  2. Roll your paper flowers around the top of the bottles and a bottle–top sized circle to the cap. Attach using the tape.
  3. Tape your leaves to the bottle stem.
  4. Cover the six-pack holder in wrapping paper to create your ‘vase’.
  5. Add tissue paper foliage to the vase before you add the bottle–flowers.


Dad might not wear a tie very often, but a colour-in tie is a lot of fun. Add vivid colours for a flower power tie. It’s the perfect bookmark to stick in Dad’s copy of his favourite book.

All you need to do is download the bookmark tie template below, print it off, cut it out and decorate until your hearts content!

Bring the pub home

Dad might be enjoying his pints at home after lockdown, so why not create a ’pub away from pub’ at home. This idea comes from Ocado customer Clare Dawson, who created a personal pub experience for her dad.One of the most fun parts of the crafting experience is to come up with your pub name and make your own pub sign. We’ve also created some beer mat templates for you to print out and colour in.


  • Tape packets of bar snacks to cardboard and hang on the wall
  • Name your pub and make a sign
  • Get in some of dad’s favourite tipples
  • Line up sparkling glassware and some lemon slices
  • Get out board games to create that traditional alehouse vibe
  • Make your own personalised beer mats (try our downloadable PDF below)
