I had the best intentions to create a bunch of rad holiday DIYs for you guys this year. I really did. But between the madness that accompanies owning a small business this time of year and the fact that I'm in Mexico right now without much crafty material (unless I whip something up that requires a lot of sand), it just hasn't happened. Thankfully, the are a few past DIY projects that I'm going to share with you, and if you're in the same position as me (still with shopping and wrapping to do!), they might just come in handy!
printable file contains 20 tags per sheet. For details on how to print them out and turn them into beautiful accessories to your wrapped gifts, just click here.
personalized gift coupon sets using your favorite photos. These vouchers are a creative (and budget-friendly!) way to give unique gifts to your significant other, parents, kids, co-workers or friends. And the meaningful gesture behind them won't fade as soon as the holidays are over. Find out how to make your own right here.
wrap bracelets. It only takes a few supplies, and you can create several of them out in a half hour. I plan to make a few of these when I get back home this weekend to give as gifts on Christmas morning. To find out how to make them, click here.
homemade dog treats in honor of Bubby dog, who we'd lost a few weeks earlier. Her dog Isis (aka the 'Bean' in Bubby and Bean) absolutely loves them, and we think they make the perfect gift for your doggies or friends who are dog owners. Just drop some in a cello bag and tie closed with a piece of ribbon. You can check out the recipe right here.
lanterns. They turned out really well, and I've since made several for gifts for friends. The great thing about these is that they have so many uses for the holidays - you can give them away as candle holders, fill them with candies or greens (they make great vases!), or use them as holiday decor inside or outside of your home. Details on how to create them can be found here.
peanut brittle and puts the pieces into pretty tins as gifts for friends and family members. She shared the recipe with you guys last year, and if you haven't tried it yet, I highly recommend it. In addition to being a sweet gift, it's also a delicious treat to serve when hosting friends or family for the holidays. To see how make your own, click here.
vinyl record dessert stand DIY. This easy project also makes an amazing gift for music lovers. You can find out to make your own right here.
