Gift A Day #22: DIY Part 1

Saturday, December 22, 2012

I’ve warned you to avoid the stores, so for the next two days, I’m going to share with you some DIY gifts. Today’s subject is crafts, but unless you have a craft closet like yours truly, you may need to go to a craft store.

Here are some easy things that you can make at home!

·         Stockings: $1 stockings + glue + glitter, you’ve made personalized stockings!
·         Limoncello: Ferment a quick gift! Bottle it in mason jars.
·         Ornaments: There are so many things you can do with inexpensive clear ornaments. I like this photo ornament from the House of Smiths blog (no relation!). I’ve also seen clear ornaments with a variety of things inside like pearls, sequins, glitter and candy! Get creative!
·         Tote Bag: I made this tote for my bridesmaids! It’s super easy – buy a canvas tote, outline an initial and then bedazzle the crap out of it. Whola!
