Father's Day Presents
Belts and ties are the coin of the realm for Father's Day, but they don't have to fly right off the store rack straight into the gift box; add your own personality to the package. Embroider Dad's first or last initial on this year's tie. A simple linen tie makes a good candidate; try embroidery floss in a lighter shade of the same color for a refined monochrome palette.
Or make a handsome rack for Dad's new belt:
- Wooden hanger
- Wire cutters
To attach cup hooks to a good wooden hanger, first drill holes with an appropriate-sized bit. (If you try to screw hooks in with your hands without first making holes, the rod might split.) Space holes evenly, about 2 inches apart; if the screws of hooks are too long, snip off ends with wire cutters before screwing them in.
