Top Ten DIY Gifts That Anyone on Your List Will Love.
1. A LUXURY CANDLE
It might be pretty obvious this idea would have made it to the top of our list! Making your own candles is simple with the right tools and instructions. Plus, you can do it in your kitchen in about forty-five minutes, so it happens to be one of the less time consuming DIY gifts.
For complete instructions on how to create your own luxury candles check out our blog How to Make a Wooden Wick Candle.
If you’re planning to make candles for a few people, the Curated Candle Kits are the best option for you. You’ll receive vessels, fragrance, wax, wicks and clips, and safety labels that will allow you to make up to twelve candles at once!
2. A MARBLED RING DISH
This marbled ring dish is made from oven bake clay and gold liquid gilding. You can get all the supplies to make it at a local craft shop. It’s one of the most simple, yet elegant DIY gifts.
It’s tres chic, super simple, and can be used for storing stacking rings, bracelets, earrings, and other small knick-knacks.
Every dish will turn out one of a kind and you can select any combination of colored clays to create the perfect dish.
The clay dish can also double as an appetizer dish or decor piece if your gift recipient has a more minimalistic accessory style.
3. A FRINGED FLANNEL THROW
Fringe and flannel are two things that are majorly on trend. This DIY throw will only cost you about $10 and it can be done in around an hour.
Modern farmhouse is a thing now (thank you Joanna and Chip Gaines) and this blanket will look as good as store bought blankets five and six times as expensive as making your own.
It also requires basically no sewing skills, so as long as you own some scissors and can dig up a pin somewhere around the house, you’re ready to go!
4. A PERSONALIZED EASEL CALENDAR
For those of you who are a bit more virtually inclined versus hands-on, this personalized calendar can be designed 100% online! You can select from tons of different design templates, create your own, and upload your own photos.
It also comes with an adorable wooden easel stand that gives the calendar a modern, upscale look. You can even paint the wood easel or stencil a unique design on it with this gold foil paint from Amazon for that handmade touch.
5. PUMPKIN VEGAN DONUTS WITH MAPLE CASHEW FROSTING
Who doesn’t love donuts? Especially when they are filled with pumpkin and maple goodness.
These pumpkin vegan donuts are just flat out TASTY. We won’t tell if you make your own “test” batch too!
Sub the einkorn flour for Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free flour to make this recipe gluten free (and still just as delicious). The recipe works for almost anyone, regardless of dietary restrictions.
Place the donuts in a small holiday tin and they are gift-ready!
6. A MACRAME WALL HANGING
Macrame DIY is incredibly popular, but to those of you who have never attempted it before it can seem difficult and intimidating! Have no fear, it’s definitely not as hard as you might think and you don’t need any prior experience in knotting.
The wall hangings Solid Oak come in a kit that provide you with everything you need (including step by step instructions) and they’re super affordable.
7. A LADDER SHELF
This ladder shelf is SO simple, modern, and only requires plywood and towel rods. It’s perfect for holding magazines, towels in the bathroom, or a cozy blanket.
Building a ladder shelf will undoubtedly stun whoever the lucky recipient is who gets to add it to their home and become a keepsake for years to come.
Good luck wrapping it up though!
8. TASSEL EARRINGS
These earrings are easy to make (and very inexpensive), but they look as good as designer fashion jewelry!
Tassel earrings would be a great craft to make with your kids or if you’re a last minute DIYer reading this blog the week before Christmas, they can be made in about five minutes.
PS- make sure to get silk tassels so that the fringe doesn’t get tangled up after multiple uses!
9. A CROCHET MARKET TOTE
Ok, these market tote bags have been all the rage for some time now and it’s obvious why! Not only are they ultra cute, but they can be used every time you go to the grocery store or farmer’s market which equals plastic bags saved… yay!
You can create your own with this free crochet pattern. The chunky yarn makes this bag extra sturdy and luxurious. Go with the oatmeal color suggested or choose your own fun color.
10. GEMSTONE SOAPS
These gorgeous gemstone soaps are a perfect DIY gift during the holidays for your friends and family. They look stunning in a guest bathroom and they’re so pretty, you’ll hardly want to use them.
This recipe could not be easier and it makes up to 9 soaps. That’s a whole lot of gifts to give… Plus a few to keep for yourself!
Add one of our skin-safe fragrances like Orange Rind + Clove or Rose Patchouli + Amber to really step up your soap making. If you’re going to add fragrance to your soaps, it should make up five percent or less of the total formula.
