I hope you had a nice weekend. This morning, I wanted to share a Father’s Day DIY that I recently created for Momtastic. It’s for a DIY hand painted tie. That one that see peeking out above, from behind that book.
Father’s Day is one of the toughest holidays for me to come up with gift ideas. Dads are tough to DIY for, but I’m happy with how this one turned out. And I have one more DIY for Dad later this week, that will add a pop of color to your home. So stay tuned for that…should be going up on Wednesday.
You can check out the full tutorial and more photos for this DIY Father’ Day gift on Momtastic. And on an unrelated note, that Pictorial Webster’s Dictionary is pretty cool (and it’s available on Amazon if you’re interested).
Photos, concept, and photography by Brittni Mehlhoff
P.S. I had Jeff pose for the photos. Can you tell he doesn’t like having his picture taken? It’s so different (and a little weird) to use a guy as a model, but for Father’s Day it’s kind of the only option.
Do you have any plans to make something for Father’s Day, this year? Or did you buy the perfect gift that you know he’ll love? Always curious to hear how other people tackle this holiday.

Thanks Kel. I try. 🙂Brittni
Love this tie idea! But I also really love the photos! And I agree with Rachelâ€¦ good job on those straight lines!Kelly @ Studio DIY
Thanks Rachel. I followed the natural lines in the weave of the tie, so that’s how I got most of the lines so straight…though I didn’t manage to space a few of them properly…which I hope is ‘adding to the character’ of the tie. 🙂Brittni
This is downright darling! What a great gift idea. Also, I’m thoroughly impressed with how straight your lines are!Rachel | The Crafted Life

Thanks Chelsea. I like that it kind of teeters between traditional and non-traditional, as far as Father’s Day gifts go.Brittni
