Happy Monday crafters! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Father’s Day is almost here! A simple wood caddy, personalized for your dad makes a great gift. You can put a few new tools into it, or maybe Dad’s favorite snacks. The chalkboard front allows you to put a loving message, a “Honey Do” list (ahem), or even a reminder of when the game is on! Laura Bray designed and created this awesome and useful Father’s Day craft. This project is very simple to make, and it will take up to 2 hours to complete. See the supplies and instructions to create this project below. To see more projects by Laura check out her blog, Katydiddys.
