TIn Foil Fish Father’s Day Craft

You can make these tin foil fish and use them for a variety of things.  Use them to decorate frames, make a bookmark, etc.

Here is the Video Tutorial

Supplies You Will Need

  • tin foil (dollar store usually has great deals on foil)
  • permanent markers
  • hammer (optional)
  • googly eye

Optional items – depending on how you want to make them, are:

  • white glue
  • glitter


  • embossing ink
  • thick embossing powder
  • heat gun


  • Shape tin foil into a fish.  If the shape isn’t quite what you were going for, feel free to trim with scissors.
  • Color fish with permanent markers and let dry.
  • Either use white glue and sprinkle with glitter and let dry.


  • Put embossing ink on fish and cover with embossing powder.  Shake off excess powder and return to jar.  Heat with a heat gun and allow embossing powder to melt.  Use a skewer or something so that it doesn’t blow away.  It’s too hot to hold with your fingers.
  • Let it cool and figure out what to do with them.  I’d love for you to share your ideas!!
  • One of the ideas I had was to attach it to a painted craft/popsicle stick and use it as a bookmark.  Great gift for a fisherman dad!!

That’s it! Remember: Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
