Today I have a super funny father’s day gift idea! This spinner is easy to make and dads will love the joke!
This spinner is the perfect present for that dad that likes to golf (or hunt, or fish, or watch T.V.!) I’ve got a free cut file for you that includes all the options! Every time you flick the spinner, gravity will take its course and always land on the fun option!
Supplies to make spinner:
Hobby Lobby has all the supplies in their Crafts department that you need to make this fun gag gift for father’s day!
- Wood round (Mine are 10 inches wide but there are a few options and sizes. You can pick whatever size you want!
- Smaller wood round (Middle of the spinner)
- Clock Hands
- Paper studio adhesive vinyl in your choice of color
- Paper Studio Transfer Tape
- Upholstery tack or push pin
- Paint in your choice of color (The wood rounds are pretty plain too!)
- SVG Cut file (down below)
How to make a funny Father’s Day Gift Spinner:
I made two spinners because I wanted to show you that you could make a colorful one if you want! That’s the one I will show you how to make. The other one is just one color cut out altogether! Whichever way you chose to make it, it will turn out great!
Paint the wood circle
Like I mentioned earlier, the wood is pretty as is! BUT if you wanted to paint it, do that step first so it has time to dry before applying the vinyl! I used regular white craft paint and did a top coat of clear spray paint so the vinyl could stick to it better!
Cut out the vinyl
Upload the cut file into your cutter software. The cut file comes with SVG, DXF, and PNG so should work with most electronic cutters! I use a Silhouette cameo, and I have lots of Silhouette posts to help you learn your machine. Hobby Lobby has silhouette cameos as well as Cricut Makers if you are looking for a good excuse to purchase one!
Once the image is uploaded, pick what wording you want at the bottom. I have a few options or you can use the text feature and add your own fun option.
Since I had lots of layers, I had to cut out 4 different colors. Weed away the excess vinyl that isn’t part of the design.
Apply the Vinyl
I used the transfer tape and started with the bottom layer, then just started adding on the vinyl. Starting with the bottom yellow circle, then the orange circle, then lastly with the pie chart shape in blue. I used the same piece of transfer tape for all 3 and it was great! Not too sticky that it’s hard to get the vinyl off, but still lasted 3 applications!
The last Vinyl layer was the words. I used the offset to create some white around the words so they would pop a little more. You can see that I placed the little circle in the middle to make sure that the words weren’t covered up.
Adding the Spinner
What makes the spinner fun is that it always lands pointing down. To achieve that, I used one of the hands from the clock part. There were a couple of options at Hobby Lobby that would have worked for the spinner but this one was the easiest!
Take the upholstery brad and push it through the opening in the clock hand, and through the wood circle. If you push it all the way through, it will be too tight and the spinner won’t be able to spin easily. Leave a little space. (Pushing it was pretty easy! But if you need assistance you can use a little hammer!
Then press this whole circle and spinner in the middle of the wood round. The back of my tack didn’t pop through the back of my wood round, but if yours does, you could put a little hot glue over it to prevent anyone from getting poked.
Father’s Day Spinner
Then it’s time to spin. (and spin, and spin, and spin!) Dad will love that it’s always going to tell him what he wants! It’s a perfect little sign to hang in his office or garage!
Here is the Father’s Day Spinner using only one color of vinyl. Still very cute and a little simpler than the layers of adhesive vinyl!
These Spinners just make me laugh! I want to make myself one that says Craft at the bottom spot and hang it on my kitchen wall! Should I make dinner? Clean the house? laundry? or craft!
