How to Make These Last Minute Gift Ideas: DIY Daddy’s Sweet Pack

What you need: 

Four Pack Clear Soda Bottles

Bulk Candy

Spray Paint

All you need is a four pack of tall clear soda bottles and four different types a candy. We found this four pack at Trader Joe’s. All you have to do is to drink the bottles of soda and make sure that they are clean, make sure you keep the caps too. We were very careful about taking the tops off our ours as they were not twist off tops.

Then you have to keep the little box that the soda came in and spray paint it and decorated it to be unique just for your dad. When we were little we made these DIY Father’s Day Plaques it is amazing how our gifts have changed as we have grown up.

Now all that is left is to fill the bottles with his favorite candy. Each of our bottles took 3 movie size boxes, you might buy larger bags, about 12 oz to save money.

You can do a lot of unique things in the glasses too. If I had more time I might make paper ties between them. This gift is so time efficient and easy. Every dad will love this gift and it does not take long. This would make a fun birthday present, great hostess gift or just a thinking of you present too. Perfect even if it is not about last minute gift ideas.

What types of candy would you fill these bottles with?
