Crocheted Flower Necklace

I’M BACK! And I am so excited to share with you this necklace using last week’s crochet flower pattern. This project merged my two current crafting loves right now, crochet and jewelry making. Don’t let it fool you, it really isn’t that difficult to make (I think I may be getting the hang of those jump rings…finally). I LOVE how it turned out, and I hope you do too!

Disclaimer: I sought out all of these crafts with my own dad in mind, because I think he’s pretty cool, so they all have a little Papa Hill essence to them!

Glasses Case

Is it a rule that all dads have about a million pairs of reading glasses? Or is that just mine? Papa Hill buys multi packs or readers about once every month or two because he either loses them or ruins them. Problem solved with this nifty craft that keeps your glasses free from scratches and easy to find!

DIY Tie Organizer for Father's Day

Father’s day is just around the corner. This year instead of going with the universally accepted and oh so very common Father’s Day gift, a tie, I decided I would make my dad something to organize all those ties he has received in the past.
