DIY Father's Day Fish Tin

If you're new here, I post recycled Pirouline tin crafts every month! You can find them all here.

Father's day is sneaking up fast, but not to worry, I have a fun craft project for you to make! One of my favorite I do with my dad is fishing. He always took me fishing growing up, so that is what inspired todays Pirouline project!

I recycled an empty Pirouline Cookie tin into a fish! It would be so fun to fill this with some new fishing gear to make a perfect Father's Day gift, don't you think?


  • Empty Pirouline Tin
  • Adhesive
  • Colored Paper
  • Scissors
  • Printer


1. Apply adhesive to the outside of your tin, and cover your tin in a dark green paper. (or other color! There's no rule that says your fish has to be green.)

2. Print out the template (found in the supply list above) and cut out the pieces you'll need to make a fish. I cut all of the fins & belly pieces from a lime green paper to contrast the dark green.

In addition to the template pieces, you'll also want to cut 1/2" paper strips from lime green and light pink paper for the lips.

3. Adhere on your fish pieces. Place the belly (half circle) on one side of the tin, and your eyes will go on each side of that.

Adhere a lime green strip and a pink strip to the top of the tin for lips.

4. Adhere the two smallest fins to the sides of the fish.
On the "cut 2" fins, cut 2 of each design adhere the top and side edges together and fold the bottom strip on the dashed line.

5. Adhere them to the back of your tin, to make the fishes back.

I designed some printable tags to go along with this tin, You can download them in the supply list above. They have some fish puns that are perfect for Father's day!
