10 DIY Father’s Day Gifts & Cards for Baseball-Fan Dad
Handmade greeting cards and printables are a great way to tuck in the "We love you, Dad!" sentiment with a baseball flair.
Check out the clever 3D effects in this Father’s Day Dodgers Baseball Card (1) from Craft Me a Card (via Pinterest) that uses cutouts, and this Baseball Mitt Father’s Day Pop-up Card (4) from The Soccer Mom Blog hiding kids’ photos inside! Or what about free printable Father’s Day baseball vouchers (2) from The Mom Bot that promise Dad some treats?
Mini baseball-themed gift baskets are great, too. Fun-Squared has this "Buckets of Fun" idea (3) filled with baseball gear and treats. While Running with a Glue Gun has this clever DIY Father’s Day concession stand tray (8), just like they have at the ballpark! (Tip: You can even surprise Dad with a DIY baseball concession stand at home.)
Handcrafted gift items made by the family are sure to warm Dad’s heart. Follow the tutorial from Kitchen Concoctions for a DIY baseball picture frame (5) painted with a weathered look and decorated with baseball accents. Transform a plain ceramic plate into this sweet Baseball Handprint Plate (6) with instructions from Plaid.
Dress up a baseball cap with this DIY "Super Dad" free cut file (7) from Siser, using heat-transfer vinyl and a cutting machine. Create a retro-style DIY baseball display case (9) as we saw on Yesterday on Tuesday—just the thing for Dad’s game keepsakes.
Or for a family project for all to pitch in, try assembling a DIY baseball hat rack (10) like this one featured on Crafty Morning. It just needs a plank of wood, old baseballs, and baseball-themed decals. Dad will love it!
