Handmade Fathers Day Gift Idea

With Father’s Day around the corner, I really wanted to think of something special to give the men in our life.

My husband cherishes everything the kids make him, from hand-drawn art to clay hand prints – they are all displayed proudly in his office. But this year I wanted to come up with a handmade Fathers day gift that would do more than just sit on his desk. I wanted to wrap him in love wherever he goes.  And then it hit me…hand stamped belts.

This father’s day gift is something that your kids can easily have fun making one afternoon, and all you’ll need is a belt, some stamps and fabric ink.

I tried this on both a leather belt, as well as some cheap cotton ones – and both look great. The kids loved putting the stamps on, knowing that their Daddy would be wearing something they made. And I loved that they were doing a craft that wasn’t making a gigantic mess.

To take it a step further, my leather belt is reversible. So he can still wear it to business meetings, and the loving message will be on the inside. So go ahead and get stamping on this Father’s Day gift!

I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he opens this present…

    Cute! Sorry if this seems like an obvious answer, but are you using the fabric ink pad/stamps on the leather belt as well? Does this make sure that it won’t smudge or wear off onto clothes?

    What a great idea! Does the ink stay on the leather belt? i was wondering of it wearing off and maybe need a sealant of some sort.

    What an adorable idea!

    That’s really neat. Any problem with the ink rubbing off the leather? (I’ve never used fabric ink on leather…)

    Seriously great idea!

      “I Love Every INCH of You”: That is a great idea! I may have to borrow that :-).

      I wonder if this would work with fabric markers on a canvas belt.
