5. DIY Paper Mache Nesting Bowls
A lovely chic project everyone will be dying grab ahold of.
6. Photo Collage Letter
I wanted to share with you all a Christmas gift that I gave to my brother and sister’s family…but it can be passed as a birthday or even a mother’s day gift. It’s a pretty easy project and only cost me about $20 but made a bigger impression than that.

A cute keepsake purse that looks good enough to eat!
9. Gilded Coasters

10. Lush Inspired Shower Jellies
These soap jellies are super simple to make and such a fun little treat for the shower. Lush sells a small version of these for $10 or a larger version for $20. You can make them in minutes for a fraction of the price and customize with any color or fragrance you like.
11. DIY Ginkgo Leaf Earrings
If you’ve never played with shrink plastic (aka Shrinky Dinks) before, well then I should warn you. These. Things. Are. Awesome. You essentially start with a huge piece of plastic and then pop it in the oven for a few minutes and watch it melt to ¼ its size. It’s oddly therapeutic, especially for secret pyromaniacs like me.
12. DIY Zipper Book Clutch
I love Kate Spade’s book clutches, they are SO cute. These were definitely inspired by those books.
13. DIY Wool Felt Ball Coasters
These fun colorful coasters make the perfect gift for a coffee or tea lover!
14. 5-Minute Metallic Geometric Planters
Save money on expensive pots and planters with this quick and easy project that will conceal any ugly plastic container in about five minutes, for less than $1 a piece. Using some leftover contact paper, you can whip up some faux metal containers to create an amazing gift!
15. DIY Spa Kit
Moisturize and replenish your skin with this peppermint-scented spa kit! The trio includes a sugar scrub to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, a whipped body cream to soften dry skin, and a foot soak to relieve sore/tired feet. Package the kits up in cute half-pint jars and you have the perfect little DIY gift for anyone who would love a little pampering during the stressful holiday season.
16. DIY Copper Candle
Sometimes you just need a few more copper accents to scatter around your house, right? These super simple copper votive candles are the perfect thing to add to your space! Plus, they’re easy to make in big batches and give out as gifts!

For the chef in your life…

24. YinYang Kitty Knit Socks
These are two-toned, toe-up ankle socks with a kitty chart on the toe and foot. They feature a simple short-row heel. They can be made Yin and Yang style with contrasting colors or two-of-a-kind!
