With Father’s Day fast approaching, I went on the hunt for affordable and crafty ways to celebrate the occasion. Through my search I found these fantastic ideas that Dad will be sure to appreciate. As someone who has made a lot of coupon books and terrible versions of breakfast in bed, these crafts bring a clever way to celebrate the father in your life. Not to mention, he won’t have to pretend to like the burnt toast and coffee grounds you’ve brought him, or is that just me?
