BBQ Tool Holder: Father’s Day Gift 2019

9 Materials

Easy

Each year I come up with a new gift idea for Father's Day. I went to the dollar store for some inspiration and came across some BBQ tools- that's it! Everyone loves a BBQ, and this would be perfect as a Dad'd Day gift.

Here's all the materials I picked up.

First, I built a small wooden board. I placed three boards tightly together.

And then used an anchor placed across the back about an inch from the top and about an inch from the bottom.

Then I nailed it into place.

Then flip it over, and sand it all down and smooth out the edges.

Next I sprayed some black paint sporadically over the board.

And again with some grey spray paint.

Then I dry brushed some white paint and I applied it to the cracks and made it looks a bit like wood grain.

I then dry brushed some grey paint on as well.

I then lined up the tools to see where I would want to place the hooks.

I also made a stencil using my Cricut and placed it at the top and sprayed it with white paint.

I then nailed in the hooks to hold the tools from. Just a knock at the top with a hammer and then it screws in nicely.

I stapled rope on the back to hang the sign from.

This is how it turned out! How awesome. Some tools did not have a hole at the top to hang from, so I added a bit of twine.

This keeps all of your supplies organized and makes a great summer gift!
