DIY Gift Ideas

Last year I made all of my Christmas gifts for friends and family DIY.. Here are some ideas along with a few recipes!

Snowman hand sanitizer:  Super simple to make. Just get a bottle of hand sanitizer (mine is from Dollar Tree) and decorate.Would make a perfect teacher or hostess gift! 

Winter Coasters: Simply buy a few coasters at your local Home Depot or Lowes and podge modge some pretty scrapbook paper on top. Don't forget to add a few felt pads to the bottom!

Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar: Recipe

Cinnamon Vanilla Bath ScrubRecipe

 Daddy Gift: Got the empty frame at Hobby Lobby and used scrapbooking letters for the words.

For the pistachio lover: Fill a Christmas tin with pistachios and add a piece of cardboard in the middle to make a place to toss those empty shells!

Mocha Cocoa in a Jar: RECIPE

S more's in a bag: Be sure and add a recipe to make smore's in the oven and microwave. (Sorry, can't remember where I got my recipes from)

Gift for the baker: Fill a mixing bowl with cookie baking supplies. I tied some red ribbon around the wooden spoon too! Would also be cute to add an apron!

DIY Earring Holder: Simply find a frame, staple some screen or burlap to the back and hang on wall or set on a picture frame stand.

Happy crafting! :)
