Default Any Crafty ideas for guys?

I work at a group home. I was thinking of making the ladies something. Which is easy. Some can wear clippies and others I would make like a rosette pin or something. But if I make something for the girls, I have to make something for the guys. I don't want this to be exspensive. I just have lots of supplies, so it won't be a big deal to make the ladies something. There is only 3 guys and they range in age from 20, 30 and 60. Can you think of anything. I guess if nothing else I can buy them candy. lol!

Not to sure if this is along the lines of what you are looking for but I made Corn Bags this year... you need 2 pieces of 10X20" fabric and 4 cups of feed corn per bag.. I used an old sheet for the liner and then you make a sham for them... super easy to make! You pop them in the microwave for a couple hours and they are really nice to have to keep your feet toasty... weird but nice!

A couple of hours, or a couple of minutes?

I was also browsing earlier and found a craft that I love for guys... they took a 6 pack of empty cream soda bottles and decorated the six pack and bottles and filled with little candies! It was super cute!

this was posted on another thread here . . . i'm in the process of making them now.

the fleece for the guys is skateboards and don't have time for the clay noses so i'm just doing 3 french knots.

also, i found mini puffs - i think they're 1.25"????

I am making bottle cap clips for my family who lost a loved one last year with his picture on it the cap. For the girls it was easy to make a clippie with a tiny camo bow and put the cap in the center but I couldn't figure out what to make for my uncle. So I just made a bottle cap and bought a "kelt pin" out of the jewelry making section at HL and attached it to that. That way my uncle can pin it to his fishing cap.(it looks kind of like a fishing hook)

I bought a package of 4 bottlecaps out of the jewelry making section with the little hook already attached and it hooks right onto the pin where there are 3 separate tiny holes.

Each bottle cap was about 25 cents and the kelt pins were about 37 cents each so only a little over 60 cents each for the hardware. They could have fun choosing what to put on their bottle caps although if you don't already do bottle caps that's a whole separate venture to get into!
