DIY Pinecone Father’s Day Cards

Show papa how much you care with these simple DIY Fathers Day cards! Ive had pinecones on the brain recently since theyve been all over the trail that I take day-to-day walks on. I gathered a bunch of them for these DIY moths from a few weeks earlier and had some remaining resting on my desk. I recognized that they might look a lot like mustaches if arranged so! At first I believed I would try to make them into beards as well, but they started to get pretty big and take over the card without looking as just like beards as I had actually hoped, so for these ones I just stuck to mustaches. They could also make excellent bushy eyebrows too!

If there arent numerous pinecones around where you live, not to worry, you can use this exact same idea but with pine needles, flowers, yard, sticks, leaves … whatever you can find outdoors! And no need to restrict yourself to mustaches either– hair, eyebrows, and beards are all enjoyable alternatives to play around with. Whatever you and your kids pick to do, Im wagering theyll put a huge smile on daddys face this Fathers Day!
