Double Duty for Dad’s Day: Centerpiece Meets Present Packaging on a Dime

Posted on Jun 21 2015 - 8:46am by Brenda Meehan



We’re off to celebrate but couldn’t resist sharing one quick dad-a-riffic idea done easy. This Paint Pail from our garage was the perfect centerpiece to center around Dad on Father’s Day morning, all decked out with Chris’ favorite coffee, FD cards, and of course – “his paper”; all awaiting his special day arrival…


This catchy DIY Centerpiece:

– Paint Pail (available from HOME DEPOT!)
– Stuffing for bottom. I used a small throw blanket that filled the pail fast!
– Secure weighted mylar Father’s Day Balloon (from the Dollar Store)
– Poof with coordinating tissue. (LOVE LOVE LOVE to poof tissue for dimension, pops of color, and height!)

You can also use FREE paint stir sticks to glue dot a special sign, your greeting cards, or even your balloon to for added sturdiness.

OR; To have this pretty pail do double duty, omit the stuffing and add Father’s Day gifts. A Home Depot or Lowe’s gift certificate in the card would theme beautifully with this batch of beauties for Dad! Here’s wishing that all you Fathers out there enjoy your Dad’s Day!
