It’s a great gift that’s sure to bring a smile to any father.

By creating and giving a Father’s Day grilling apron, it makes your father feel in charge, appreciated, and boosts his ego about his grilling skills (that we all know he already has).

In today’s DIY post, I’ll walk you through a few steps that will guide you in creating a custom made Father’s Day grilling apron in a matter of 10 minutes that reads “All Up In Your Grill.”  It’s time to start creating!

Step 1: Download the reversed “All Up In Your Grill” printable and print onto the Iron-On Transfer Paper. The lines on the transfer paper is the back of the paper. You’ll need to print the design on the front of the paper.

Step 2: Once the reversed design is printed, trim the excess material. Leave a quarter of an inch border around the image.

Step 3: Place the apron on a towel that’s on a hard, smooth surface. Iron out any wrinkles on the apron before applying the design. Tip: I washed and ironed my apron before starting this project to ensure a smooth and clean work surface.

Step 4: Turn the iron to a high temperature setting and place the image face down on the apron. Make sure that it’s centered and move the iron over the transfer paper in various directions for 90-120 seconds.

Create your own design to place on an apron using iron-transfer paper.

 Step 5: Once the transfer paper is cool to the touch, slowly peel the backing off starting with one of the corners. That’s it! You’re Father’s Day grilling apron is ready to be wrapped and gifted!
