How to make a paper plate Father’s day shirt craft
Get a big round paper plate.
Make a cut on two opposite sides approximately at a one-third position of the paper plate. You can use a ruler to make the cuts exactly on the opposite sides.
Fold the two flaps we got inwards to get the shape of a shirt’s collar.
Fold the two sides beside the collar backward and cut them off to get the shape of a shirt. Now, kids can paint daddy’s shirt using watercolor or crayons.

Kids can either color the tie now or decorate it using crystal stickers, tiny paper pieces etc. They can also write their special Father’s Day message for daddy. Once the tie is ready, cut it out.
Stick the tie on the paper plate shirt between the two collars and the gorgeous Father’s Day shirt craft is ready.
We also made more paper plate shirt crafts where we glued some buttons instead of a necktie in the middle. We cut a bow shape out of foam paper and stuck it above the buttons between the collars. If you want to make a bow, you could also use a felt sheet or a piece of cardstock.
