Father’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 dad’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 aren’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 dad’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 don’t need to worry about whether they’re masculine or feminine because they reflect the man you love’s preferences.
  • Stripes Work Best: Stripes are perfect for dad. Gender neutral and customizable for color preferences, stripes offer are the perfect pattern for Father’s Day upholstery gifts. Use dad’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.

Fabric created gifts are the perfect chance to bring the family together for a fun-filled day of crafting that is sure to warm dad’s heart.

Your home’s walls are your chance to inject your personality into your home’s interior decor. They’re also the perfect opportunity for each of your family members to get a say in the look of their personal space. Unfortunately for many families, wallpaper can be expensive to buy and install, and doesn’t easily lend itself to mixing and matching. Creating fabric wallpapers from decorative fabric, however, allows you to do exactly that. Whether you’re looking to wallpaper your kids’ doors to give them a sense of ownership over their space or have some nooks and crannies that could use a jolt of personality, shopping an online fabric store for your favorite fabrics and converting them into wallpaper gives you unlimited decorating freedom at a price that can’t be argued with. Here are some ideas for fabric wallpapering.

Top Two Fabric Wallpapering Ideas:

  • Doorways: Doors are the often neglected white space of a home. Rarely addressed in home decor planning, these spaces provide the perfect canvas for small pops of personality. Browse an online fabric store with your kids and let them pick out a pattern for their door. Create a color blocking scheme for visitors to see when they walk past your closed doors. Wallpapering your home’s doors with fabric is easy, inexpensive, and a fun family project that turns a white, drab space into a fun opportunity for design.
  • Closets: Another often overlooked opportunity for design, picking your favorite fabric and converting it into wallpaper to line inside of your closet turns creates fun, friendly space to hang your clothes and choose your daily wardrobe. Brighten your closet and instantly start your day on a brighter foot.

These are just two of our favorite ideas. In reality, fabric wallpaper can work for everything from bedroom walls to window sill ledges and are less expensive and easier to install than your traditional wallpapering techniques.
