Christmas is over:( I had so much fun and it was great getting to see my brother and spend time with family. This post is a little late, but I wanted to be with my family as much as possible before my brother had to leave. You can se…
I always take forever to figure out what I want to get people. Everyone in my family is very picky, so it can be difficult getting everyone something they’ll like. I try to go for things I think they will use. My budget is pretty small this year as I’m about to start college, so everything is under $25. This gif…
Their is a giveaway at the end of this post.
Buying Christmas gifts can be very expensive, so to save a bit of money I like to make some DIY gifts. I also really like how much you can personalize gifts when you make them yourself.
All you need for this one is rocks and paint. I couldn’t find any rocks that would work for this around where I live, so I bought some from Michael’s. You can be as creative as you want with these and personalize them for the person you’re giving them to. I’m using these as paperweights, so I just used acrylic pa…
I found these tags at Micheal’s, but found them a bit plain. I wanted to decorate them, but didn’t have to much time, so I went through my craft supplies and ended up using tape I had for most of them and some glitter for a fe…
This is most of what I got for Christmas. I will leave links to everything I can, but as they are gift I’m not sure where everything is from. I hope you had a great holiday.
For these two I wrapped them in brown wrapping paper than used white spray paint to give them a design. Once they dried I decorated them with twine, raffia, little silver balls, and chalkboard labels.
I saw this idea and immediately fell in love with it. Using chalkboard paper or a solid colored paper that you can write on, wrap the present, then use the paper as the card. Simple, but really cute! After that I finished it off with some twine and a candy cane.
For the last one I took some old fabric I had laying around and tore along the side of it to create ribbon. Of course you can also buy ribbon, but if you have some extra fabric laying around it can be a good way to save a little bit of money.
Hope you like the post and happy holidays!🎄
Pick a plant of your choice and use whatever stones and anything else you like to decorate it. Make sure you have enough soil for the plant though
Hot Chocolate Ordaments
What you will need:
-Toppings of your choice
- To start off plan what order you want everything to be in and make sure to rinse out your ordaments. I suggest starting with the hot chocolate and working your way up.
- Before putting anything in the ordaments place them in cupcake liners, this is optional, but it helps hold them in place while your pouring.
- Next add your ingredients in layers and your done
Cookies in a Jar
-Recipe and ingriedients of your choice
- To start off find a clean jar and make sure it will fit the recipe you have chosen.
- Next add the dry ingredients in the recipe in layers. Start off with the flours and sugars and put things like chocolate chips toward the top.
- Close the jar and write out what they will need to add and how to cook it on a label or piece of paper.
-Essential oil of your choice
-Air tight bottle
-Twine for decoration(optional)
- Pour two cups Epsom salt into a bowl.
- Add 10-15 drops of essential oil to the salt and mix well. The amount can vary depending on how strong your essential oil is.
- Add one drop of food coloring and slowly build up the color. You don’t want to add to much as to much moisture can cause the salt to harden. (This step is optional)
- Pour into jar, decorate if desired, and your done.
I always struggle with picking out gifts for people, but I love these DIYs because they work well as gifts for a number of people. I hope you liked this post and found it helpful:)
