DIY Father’s Day Gift – Homemade Six Pack of Treats for Dad!

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

If you’re looking for a DIY 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 this DIY father’s day gift 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.

To 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.

While 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.

Decorate 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.

You 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.

Or you can use an actual funnel or – as Cody is using here – one of those reclosable soda can lid covers minus the resealable top.

Once all of your bottles have been filled, simply twist the caps back on and place back into the chalkboard painted soda bottle carton.

Now all that’s left is to write your message on the outside of the chalkboard bottle carton and gift and you DIY father’s day gift is complete!

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.
