  • twine
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • craft foam letters (D-A-D)
  • nuts, bolts, screws
  • empty toilet paper tube
  • small scrap of cardboard

Instructions:

  1. Cut the empty cardboard tube to the same height as the jar.
  2. Cut a circle out of cardboard that will fit inside the jar and rest on the bottom of the jar.
  3. Glue the cardboard tube on one end to the middle of the cardboard circle. Set inside the jar.
  4. Fill all around the tube with nuts, bolts, etc., leaving the tube empty.
  5. Glue twine all around the lid of the jar, beginning on the bottom edge of the lid. Continue gluing and wrapping twine until the top is completely covered.
  6. Cut out letters from craft foam to spell DAD. Glue on top of lid. (Photo shows jar without the nuts, bolts, etc.)
