Hand-made gifts have always been very popular, but in the past few years this topic has experienced a real boom. The trend has become so popular that handicraft and creative departments literally appear in every shopping center. With the development of this industry, it has become possible to make a gift that is not just very personal, but also of high quality.
It is necessary to involve children in giving gifts from early childhood - in this way they will not only congratulate a dear person and show generosity towards him, but also learn to express sincere feelings of love, gratitude and respect. The child can help to choose a gift in the store, or he can participate in its creation. Do-it-yourself present is most often done for dads, because in almost every family mom is involved in aesthetic education.
With age, when the child begins to independently generate and implement his creative ideas, the mother will definitely not be left without pleasant surprises.
A father's birthday present emphasizes achievement and resonates with the interests of the main man in the family. It is not necessary to perform it strictly in brutal tones. Children, especially small ones, are allowed to paint postcards in pink and pastel colors without hesitation and decorate them with cute little animals. A little love and tenderness will not hurt even the most mature man.
One of the most urgent options for a handmade gift is a postcard. You can sit down for its implementation literally the night before. If you have time to get ready, rummage through the family album and choose a couple portrait with vivid emotions. By the way, on the occasion of your birthday, you can take some original photos. Pictures of children with a poster, where a congratulation is written by hand, look very cordial. In conclusion, add sincere wishes to the postcard with a photo and it will definitely never get lost.
You can make a collage from the footage; for this purpose, there are several online services on the network.
You can draw not only on postcards, but also on clothes. To do this, arm yourself with fabric paints and a plain T-shirt. Dry the work and fix it according to the instructions. Most often, hand-painted fabrics are recommended to be washed no earlier than after 2 days, after having ironed them through a thin cotton fabric.
Dishes with an author's print will become a pleasant surprise for daily use. If you find high-quality non-toxic paints, it is allowed to scribble interesting wishes even on the bottom of the plate. It is difficult for very young children to work with such a surface; they can leave their creation on paper, from which an adult will transfer the drawing without distortion. For work, you will need ceramic dishes, a brush and special paints. You can replace them with ceramic markers, but they will not last so long. The creation must be fixed in the oven for 20 minutes at a temperature of 200 ° C, and then cooled in the same place.
Older children can give dad a really useful, designer gift. For example, a personalized leather case or belt. It is possible to apply the inscription in several ways, but neatly scorched looks especially masculine. It can be done with an ordinary soldering iron. The evenness of the burnt lines is ensured by the smoothness of the movements. You should not press on the soldering iron; for a thin line, a light touch is enough, like a felt-tip pen on a sheet of paper. Naturally, the lighter the skin tone, the brighter the pattern will be on it. For the first experiments, it is better to choose a fairly dense skin.
A handmade gift for dad carries the warmth of children's hands, no matter how old the child is. Handmade gifts are a beautiful family tradition.
