When it comes to brainstorming gift ideas, Father’s Day generally seems to give people more trouble than Mother’s Day. That’s why we’ve been on the lookout for clever gift ideas for dad so we can share them with you here, and we hit gold when we ran across this DIY Sailor Knot Keychain tutorial from Michael Ann Made.
Because we have a couple knitters on our staff, we decided to make some easy knitted icord for our Nautical Knot Keychains using scrap yarn from past projects. However, even if you aren’t a knitter, you can easily replace the icord with a thick length of rope or twine for a unique take on the project.
To personalize our Nautical Knots, we added two blue gift tags in the style Color Wash that say:
Happy Father’s Day
For being my anchor
The Color Wash style is particularly good for this project because it offers a charm option. We, of course, had to choose the anchor charm to go with the nautical theme of the project.
Once you put your the whole keychain together with your key ring, personalized tags, some keys, and maybe even a few themed charms or trinkets, this project comes together to make a unique gift for dad. Happy upcoming Father’s Day!
