Father’s Day DIY Decorations

Happy Saturday to you!

Boy oh boy is it hot here today in Utah.. but that’s okay because I’ve been inside (hallelujah for air-conditioning!) making (and teaching others how to make) these awesome Father’s Day projects.

So I thought I would show you all how to make them as well. A lovely lady in church showed me a picture of some Father’s Day decorations and I saw something very similar to these and I thought ‘oooo I think I can totally make that’ So I tried and I loved the way they turned out.

What you’ll need:

  • 8 1/2 x 11 paper (any color)
  • 6 x 6 paper (different designs) 
  • Scissors 
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Buttons
  • Embellishments 


    Step 1: Take an 8 1/2 x 11 paper, fold it in half, then cut that in half (you should be able to make 2 per paper)

    Step 2: Half an inch down from the fold, cut an inch long cut on each side

    Step 3: Fold the cuts toward the middle until the top corners touch

    Step 4: Take the 6×6 paper and cut out a tie

    Step 5: Glue tie to paper shirt

    Step 6: Glue top corners down (the collar)

    Step 7: Glue buttons on each side 

    Now for shirt with a bow tie steps 1-3 are the same.

    Step 4: Glue top corners down (the collar)

    Step 5: Glue 2 or 3 (or as many as you’d like) buttons on the shirt 

    Step 6: Glue on bow tie

    Tada! Now you can enjoy! 

    Use it as a decoration or a Father’s Day card.

    If you have any other ideas to use these for or how we can change it up, I would love to hear from you.

    Now let your creativity and imaginations run wild!

    And I hope you all have a fantastic day!

    With Love,

    Miss Lynsie
