You can go ahead and decorate it with tassels and beads and write a message on the other side of it.


There are a lot of ways in which you can add pictures to your Father’s Day crafts. The best thing about them is that no matter how many years later your father looks at them, the pictures will always help refresh the fond memories he has made with you.
