This year, we made an early Father’s Day gift. So, of course with me and my love for gift wrapping, we decided to get creative with this year’s gift. Here is a quick and easy DIY Father’s Day gift wrapping idea that only takes a few supplies and less than 15 minutes to wrap.
Time: < 15 Minutes
First, I wrapped the framed family photo shoot gift that we made in brown paper. Other colors both plain and patterned will work. Consider using plaid or anything that may remind you of Dad’s button up dress shirt. You can also upcycle a brown paper bag.
I made the bow tie out of blue plaid scrap paper. I first cut out a rectangle, cut out triangles on each side, and then wrapped the middle with another piece of paper. The size you cut will depend on the size of your gift.
Next I used a small craft circle punch and cut out 3 circles to use as buttons. Again, play around with colors and patterns. I had this red piece left over from Christmas.
Lastly, I used brown ribbon as suspenders and wrapped a piece lengthwise around each side of the gift.
Tape it all together and you have a cute and simple paper dress shirt.
