DIY Father's Day Gift Idea - Homemade Six Pack of Treats for DadIf you’re looking for a homemade Father’s Day gift idea that the kids can make, then you’ve come to the right place. My son made this fun candy and treat filled six pack for Father’s Day complete with a chalkboard carrier for writing his own custom message! To create with your child for Dad, all you’ll need is a six pack of soda, chalkboard spray paint, a piece of chalk, washi tape and assorted treats like candy, nuts and whole coffee beans – whatever are Dad’s favorites.

Chalkboard Paint DIY Craft ProjectTo get started, you’ll first need to drink all of the sodas in your six pack, wash them and allow them to dry thoroughly. Be sure you keep the lids. As these come with twist off caps, you can simply twist them back on after filling your bottles. Then, once you’re ready to start, simply spray paint all sides of your soda carton with two coats of chalkboard paint. Allow the first coat to dry completely before applying the second coat. My son created an easy mess free way to spray paint his container outside on the carport by using a large cardboard box as a shield.

DIY Washi Tape Decorated BottlesWhile your bottle carton is drying, you can use that time to dress up your bottles. This is so easy that kids of any age can participate. Simply wrap washi tape around the bottles or apply to bottles at random to create your own custom look.

Washi Tape DIY Craft ProjectDecorate all six soda bottles with washi tape. Once they’ve all been decorated, you’re ready to fill them up with candies, nuts or coffee beans. Be sure to pick treats or snacks that are small enough to fit through the opening of the bottle and remove without getting stuck.

Homemade Father's Day Gift Idea - DIY Washi Tape Decorated Six Pack of TreatsYou can fill the bottles in whatever way is easiest for you. You can use your hands as a funnel to pour the treats into the bottles.

Tip: Be sure to prime your chalkboard surface before using. Wait 24 hours before writing on the surface, then rub over the surface with the flat side of the chalk and erase before writing for best results and to keep the paint from scratching off.
