10 Cool DIY Christmas Gifts
DIY gifts are so special.
Sometimes taking time to create something beautiful with love is a much more appreciated gift. The imperfections are just part of the charm.
Last Christmas I put the challenge out to my family to hand make one gift for each another. At first they laughed at me, but they soon got into the spirit and had a ball creating something special. I wonder if they are up for the challenge this year?
Here are ten ideas to get you (and me) inspired!
♥ Honey Lip Balm
This is so easy to make – it just uses coconut oil, beeswax, honey and essential oils! You only need to find some cute containers. Get the tutorial at Hip Home.
♥ Jewellery Storage Board
Transform an old frame from the opshop into a funky piece of art work and storage in one! Find the tutorial at Mona Luna.
Upcycle some old mugs into a gorgeous succulent pot plant holder. Using doilies and some decoupaging. Stunning! Find the details at The Happy Housie.
♥ Upcycled Snow Globes
You know how you have all those glass jars hanging around? Well, time to get them out and turn them into gifts or decorations. You don’t have to do Christmasy scenes, choose a toy or character your child loves instead. Head to the op shop to find some toys or nik naks. Find the tutorial at Martha Stewart.
♥ Inspirational Sign
I love all those motivational signs and posters, but some of them are incredibly expensive. Why not have a crack at making up one yourself? It’s pretty easy – just some recycled wood and a stencil (your local scrapbooking shop can help you out with this). Find the tutorial at Natalme.
♥ Quote Votives
Make your own cute tea light holders with quotes. It’s really pretty easy and you can personalize them to suit. Find the tutorial at Design Mom.
♥ Toy and Snack Strap
For kids on the move – their own strap to hold toys and a little jar of snacks. Really fun and original! Find the tutorial at Whip Stitch.
