DIY Father’s Day Gift

Fun DIY Father's Day Gift idea, an "I'm Nuts About You" Caddy. A whimsical, thoughtful and useful present for Dad.

Dads give us so much comfort and love, we’re nuts about them, right? So why not show Dad how you feel about him with a DIY Father’s Day Gift… of nuts!

Father's Day Gift Supplies

Supplies: DecoArt Olde Worlde Decou-Page Paper, DecoArt Decou-page, wooden caddy from Michaels, #1 Dad wood piece from Michaels, three Mason Jars, shipping tags, scissors, a nail file(!), a chalk ink pen, a foam brush and a paint brush. You’ll also want to stock up on Dad’s favorite types of nuts. We used cashews, mixed nuts and peanuts.

Decou-Page Paper

Aren’t these new Decou-Page Papers cool? They come in packs of three coordinating designs. I wanted to play off the Olde Worlde patterns when creating this gift. The patterns in this package include an map, old fashioned handwriting and letters. These papers are meant to be used with the Decou-Page products, they are resistant to tearing and bleeding and you can use them on wood, metal, glass, fabrics, terra cotta, ceramics, resin, and more.


Step 1: Trace the shape of the sides of the caddy onto the back of paper with the map design and cut them out.

 Step 2: Apply a think coat of Decou-Page on the back of the paper.

Step 3: Place the paper on the sides of the caddy and use the nail file the paper around the edges so the paper fits perfectly.

Step 4: Cut the script paper into 5″ by 5″ squares and use Decou-Page to adhere it to the top of the Mason Jar lid.

Mine were Cashews, Mixed Nuts, and Peanuts.
