Father's Day Gift Ideas...with a French Accent!

pliant-pecheur-chemise-bucheron It was fun to see the store windows in Paris last week… filled with gift ideas for their Fête des Pères…Father’s Day…on the same day as ours! I was also excited to see my latest email from Marie Claire Idées, a French newsletter with lots of fun crafting ideas! For example, here's a fun camping stool made from an old flannel shirt that has also been used to line the creel-turned-picnic basket!

cadre-pele-mele-lin-bois I love the masculine edge to this photo display with its frame made of branches!

pense-bete-jean-couture Isn’t this clever? A framed organizer made from an old pair of  jeans!

meuble-recup-cave-vin If you are good with power tools...or know someone who is... how about reworking a piece of furniture to create a wine cabinet!

etiquettes-jardin-outil-peinture Oooh…I like this one…parts of old tools painted to serve as labels for the garden! Love the wonderful garden cloche in the background!

meuble-etiquette-vin And finally, a cabinet revamped with a large print of a wine label! And…lovers of corks…just look at that pretty basket filled with them! Sigh! Maybe it’s a little too late to create one of these, but I am definitely filing them away in my gift idea file!
Bonne Fête and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads in your life!

  2. Wonderful images, Debbie. The fishing stool reminds me, there is one in the basement I should dig out and use in some way around here.
