If your dad’s a golfer, you can’t go wrong by making him a Father’s Day gift basket. It’s easy to do with a bucket, artificial turf, glue and a few key golf essentials. We even have a printable golf flag to use instead of the usual card!

Any bucket or basket will do. Just be sure to have enough turf to cover the outside completely. You’ll want to trace and cut it in two sections to make it easier to handle.

A homemade gift basket gives you the opportunity to fill it with items of your choosing rather than those you might not want. The kids can have some input too, especially when it comes to which snacks will get Dad through the back nine.

If Dad’s not a golfer, it’s easy to adapt this craft for his favorite sport or hobby. He’s going to love it!
