Using cute earrings or your favorite family picture, dad will love a custom tie tack for Father's day. Everyone can make this super simple diy fathers day gift, so the kids will be excited to give dad something he can actually use.
Looking for Father's day gifts for the kids to make and give to dad can be pretty difficult. Especially if it's something you want dad to actually keep and use.
If he's a dad who has to wear ties every day, or even just to go to church on Sundays, making a fun patriotic tie tack that he can wear is the perfect gift idea.
The fun thing is that you can make tie tacks for any holiday or with any picture.
Looking for something non patriotic? Let your kids color a picture or use a family picture. Shrink it down to a one inch circle and glue it to one of these circle blanks for a unique and fun father's day tie tack.
The possibilities are endless and the idea is super simple. Plus, it's something dad will absolutely love to use and show off.
To make this super simple DIY tie tack, you will need:
Start your tie tack by cutting the ear ring back off of the star. Please be VERY careful doing this, as the back could fly up and hit you or get lost and you step on it later.
If you want to use a family picture or let the kids draw a picture to put on the tie tack, simple scan your picture and resize it into a one inch circle using your favorite graphics program.
Once you have done that, print and cut it out.
Glue the picture to the front of these circle blanks using modge podge. Then modge podge the front of the picture to keep it from getting worn.
Dab a little bit of glue on the end of your tie tack base and add the star or picture on top. Since you don't want it to be upside down, double check how dad puts his tie tacks on.
My boys and husband like to put there's on to grab the shirt and secure it all together, so I place the design on the right side of the tie tack when facing up. (Picture above is upside down thinking of it this way.)
This idea can be done with almost any picture or large earring. I've noticed that Walmart has super cute earrings for almost every holiday so making a huge set for dad would be a super cute Father's day gift.
It would also be a fun idea to use one of our one inch circle quotes to put on the circle. Let dad spread some cheer and good words while wearing his tie tack.
