Fatherâ€™s Day is right around the corner. Come June 19th, we will all be celebrating the dads who have made us who we are today, and those who are currently showering our little ones with love and affection. This year, do something different and unique. Skip the traditional tie and mug gift and gather the kids around for a fun fabric project. Whether you opt to let your little ones finger paint on top of a fabric covered canvas or are feeling ambitious enough to upholster dadâ€™s favorite chair in the perfect print from your favorite online fabric store, the question is how to choose the perfect fabric. Looking for a DIY craft project for the father in your life but arenâ€™t sure how to make a fabric craft that is appropriately masculine? Here are our top picks!
Masculine Prints For Dad:
- Skip The Florals: When choosing a masculine print for dad, the first general guideline is to skip the florals. While home decor fabric stores are known for their beautiful floral prints, they tend to seem too feminine for the man in your life. Opt, instead, for muted patterns or solid colors.
- Consider Personal Taste: As with all gift ideas, consider the recipient’s personal aesthetic. Work with the color scheme in dadâ€™s room or build off of his favorite colors to create a fabric covered chair for dad or a picture frame that really speaks to his color preferences. If you stick to his favorite color schemes, you donâ€™t need to worry about whether theyâ€™re masculine or feminine because they reflect the man you loveâ€™s preferences.
- Stripes Work Best: Stripes are perfect for dad. Gender neutral and customizable for color preferences, stripes offer are the perfect pattern for Fatherâ€™s Day upholstery gifts. Use dadâ€™s favorite family pictures as the base for a photo collage. Choose three to five photos and collect wooden frames for each of the pictures. Cover all frames with your favorite striped pattern and arrange in a fun pattern in his bedroom for an inexpensive, yet wonderfully appreciated gift.
