PROJECT OF THE MONTH: JUNE DIY Father’s Day Gifts to MAKE NOW

How to DIY HAMMOCK Paracord

PARACORD HAMMOCK from Made in Paracord by Caitlin Wynne – Imagine dad relaxing in his very own handmade hammock.

Father’s Day is less than three weeks away — Sunday, June 19th in the U.S. — just enough time to come up with something that would make dear old pops feel loved. Of course, at the end of the day, like my father who has practically everything, all he really wants is a phone call or skype or facetime if you’re geographically challenged or maybe a hearty hug if you’re closer.

But still. What dad, what MAN (am I profiling?), wouldn’t want to get a bright red tool box full of homemade BBQ, bacon, and chili flavored chocolate? Or a handmade Paracord hammock? Does he play golf?–hand dipped tees? Does he like to hike? Enjoy nature and the great outdoors? How about homemade beef jerky? Or does he enjoy watching sports–Remote Control Cookie? What about beer? One of the coolest new items coming out of Japan is a Frozen Beer Slushy Maker by Kirin Ichiban that perfectly pairs with the DIY black and tan soap! Scroll and click for more homemade DIY Father’s Day gift ideas sure to make pappy happy!

Happy Pubday! MOMMY DRINKS BECAUSE YOU CRY: A Sarcastic Coloring Book

The absolute perfect gift for Mother’s Day!

Mommy Drinks Because You Cry is the adult coloring book for the delightfully impolite. This collection of beautiful designs and fun illustrations is paired with the very best of all our worst thoughts, from “I child-proofed the house, but they still get in,” to “Home is where the Vodka is.”

Each hilariously captioned design is printed on sturdy tear-out pages perfect for amusing decoration or passive-aggressive gift-giving. When you want to unwind with coloring but aren’t in the mood to embrace sunshine and daisies, Mommy Drinks Because You Cry is the perfect adult coloring book to let you speak your native sarcasm!
