Gifting something from the kids for Father’s Day (or any occasion for that matter) is bound to be a win! Who doesn’t love a little something handmade by their children. These DIY personalized Garden Tools are super easy to make and you can even add on a little mini version for your kids to keep too!

It was such a pleasure to put this together to be featured in print for this June’s Loving Local magazine. You can see the feature in print at any participating pickup locations or order your copy to be delivered. More information on that here.

Keep in mind that if your husband isn’t one known for a green thumb, change up the tool. It would also look so cute on a hammer! Try our any tool and be sure to tag @creativewifeandjoyfulworker and @lovinglocal.ca so we can see! Enjoy and Happy Father’s Day!

DIY Personalized Garden Tools for Father’s Day

Materials:

  • Sandpaper
  • Scissors
  • Alphabet Stickers
  • Shelter Chalk Paint (by Spruce Collective)
  • Paintbrush
  • Big and Small Wooden Garden Tools (You could also do a hammer, shovel or any other tool that your kid’s Dad would love)

DIY Personalized Garden Tools

Directions:

  • Prep area for painting and sanding
  • Use a fine to medium sandpaper to take off any top coat and clean wooden tool ends
  • Once cleaned, brush off dust and apply your alphabet letters

  • Apply the letters very firmly. Make sure to push out any air bubbles and fill any little ridges or cracks
  • Paint over the letters lightly with thin layers of paint. I started away from the letters after dipping the brush to allow for the least amount of paint on the brush when I hit the letters.
  • Paint 2-3 thin coats using furniture chalk paint. My favourite is Shelter by Spruce Collective.

  • Let dry
  • Use the sharp edge of your scissors to lift the letters off, remove all
  • Once removed fold over your sandpaper to make a point and brush off any paint that may have leaked underneath the letters
  • Tie them together and gift with a plant.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
