It’s National Make A Gift Day! When it comes to holiday gifting, we think that a handmade present can be one of the most meaningful ways to spread cheer. So we’ve compiled a list of DIY projects that are fun, affordable, and sure to be appreciated by the recipient. These low-cost gift ideas let you show your love through a little TLC. Happy holiday and happy crafting!
Embroidery Hoop Ornament
Even if you’re not a skilled cross stitcher, you can still still make a fun embroidered ornament to give to a friend or hang on your family tree. We actually think the simplest patterns are the cutest!
DIY Sleeping Mask
We love these DIY sleeping eye masks from Awww Sam. Start with some plain eye masks and iron-on vinyl, which you can cut into fun shapes to create a personalized eye mask for friends or family members.
Washi Tape Notebooks
We love Washi Tape. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at our Washi Love, Washi Tape, Vintage Washi, and Holiday Washi stickers. But we digress. These Washi Tape Notebooks and Pencils from Lia Griffith are a great, affordable gift that is fun and easy to make.
Dip-Dyed Ombre Bag
Who doesn’t love a good tote? We love how this pretty one from Hi Sugarplum has a relaxed, organic feel achieved by dip dying a plain white tote. This useful gift is a great accessory for your fashionable, eco-conscious friends.
You didn’t think we were going to leave this one off this list, did you? A personalized collage or card is a great way to celebrate the holidays, send well wishes, and highlight your favorite photos.
