Favorite Finds: Unique Fathers Day Gifts

My week is completely messed up so I decided to move things around a bit to better manage my time. So today you're getting my Favorite Finds post early...I tried to include as many unique Fathers Day gift ideas as I could round up!! And with Father's Day this weekend...I figured the more time I have you to try out any of these ideas the more you'd like me!! 

Retro Candy-Filled Soda Bottles
The very talented Kristine McKay has a great post with some very unique Fathers Day gift ideas on her website. There's even a television segment from when she showed off these ideas. The best part about Kristine is that she also gives you free downloads for all her printables!! 

Manly Way to Hang Pictures
Loved this creative idea that I saw over on Creative Home Arts Today's website. They actually are teaching how to make the cute canvas pictures wtih postcards but I liked the belts for the frames better. 


Ruffled Ribbon Tutorial 
Okay so this has nothing to do with unique Father's Day gifts...but I had to share. Just the other day I bought me a package from Pink Paislee of pre-ruffled ribbons. You received two colors that are about 12" long with an adhesive back. Only issue is they were almost $2 each ($3.99 a pack) and they were limited on colors. I thought it would be so much easier to create my own and just happened upon a fun tutorial for these yummy pleated ribbons on Little Birdie Secrets




BBQ Brownies
What guys wouldn't love you to make unique cupcakes for him for a unique Father's Day gift?? And you know me...I love creative cupcake ideas. I found this idea over on the Family Fun website. But wait, these aren't acutally cupcakes...they're brownies. personally I loved the toasted hot dogs (aka hot tamales)...to funny! 

Smore Cupcakes 
Crafty Chicks had some really fun projects, but of course this yummy cupcake picture caught my eye! They are Smore Cupcakes...how yummy. Now would someone make them for me?? 

How to Frost a Cupcake
I loved that the very talented creators of Little Birdie Secrets created a video tutorial on how to frost a cupcake. Sounds simple, but I admit that I don't know how to make my with the cute swirl of frosting goodness like this video shows. I think I'll be able to master doing them now,



I hope you enjoyed this weeks "Favorite Finds"! I post this once a week and I think there are some very fun ideas included. Hope to see you again soon!
