DIY Holiday Gift Ideas

Hello everyone! This was the exciting post I was talking about yay! Today, I have several DIYs that you can make for very cheap and in under 15-20 minutes! Let's go :D


Fabric Scrap Letter

You Will Need:
-Felt
-Fabric scraps
-Glue/sewing machine/needle + thread

STEP 1:

Okay to make this letter, first you need to cut out the letter out of felt. You can do this out of paper to, but I did felt because fabric scraps will sew easier on there.

it was so dark today, the pictures are bad I'm sorry :(
 
 
STEP 2:
 
Now you want to cut out some random scraps out of fabric. You want to make these shapes as odd and irregular as possible!
 
 
 
 
STEP 3:
 
So gather your thread, sewing machine, glue, etc and start adding your scraps onto the letter! You can do this one of two ways: by either applying and then cutting off parts of the scrap to fit the letter or cutting the scraps to fit first and then applying.
 
 
As you can see, I cut off bits to fit my letter.
 
 
And now you're done! You can do the whole name, sew or add this onto a shirt, and do whatever you want! This makes such a cute and unique gift, I love it!
 
 
Easy Peppermint Sugar Scrub
 
You Will Need:
-1/2 cup of coconut oil
-1 cup of sugar
-Peppermint Essential Oil
-Food coloring (optional)
 



STEP 1:

Basically, all you do is add all the ingredients together into a bowl and mix!

For the essential oil, I would add two or three drops, depending on your oil! And if you used food coloring, 3-4 drops should be good.

And for a display, you could put it in a mason jar. I cleaned out an old jam jar for mine and it worked fine.

Of course, if you don't have peppermint or want to do something else, you could use another essential oil :)

Friendship Photo Collage

You Will Need:
-Photos
-Large paper
-Scrapbooking supplies (tape, glitter, whatever you have)

STEP 1:

Start out by cutting out the photos and making them the size you want, and the shape!

They don't have to be square/rectangle, I invite you to use whatever shapes you want!

STEP 2:

Now you can glue or attach your photos on. I used hot glue since I couldn't find a glue gun but you can do this however way you want to.

STEP 3:

Decorate it! You can outline your pictures in felt, ribbon, washi tape, whatever you can find! Get creative with this and make it unique to you and your relative/friend.

Whited out friend's face for privacy :)
 
 
I used a lot of different things to outline my photos :)
 
 
STEP 4:
 
Finally, to fill up that white space you see, I wrote a cute message and put a bow on it! Writing a message finalizes it and really puts the icing on the cake :)

I'm terribly sorry for the quality of this post, I really wanted to get it up today and I was totally rushing through it and ughh. I went from decent photos on my last post to horrid iPad quality photos like the ones I started out with here.
 
I hope you somewhat enjoyed and got some inspiration! Friday's post should be better, I promise xD
 
Thanks for reading,
Noor
