2. DIY Christmas Ornaments

Do you have any holiday traditions? I’m so traditional when it comes to holidays. We always watch It’s a Wonderful Life. We always bake our family Nuts & Bolts recipe. And I always make a new ornament. At least one, if not more! This year I’ve been busy making embroidery hoop wreaths at every turn, and I knew it was the perfect idea for a mini wreath ornament too!

6. DIY Mason Jar Cocktail Gifts

The most important part is that you find soda cans (or other mixer beverages) to fit inside your mason jar mugs! Normal soda cans will fit in these mugs; plastic soda bottles will not! Here I’m using large 24oz Ball Jar mugs that have a 3″ wide mouth. I recommend going soda shopping with your mug in hand!

16. DIY Candles & Container Combos

It’s that time of year where we prepare to hibernate. That means cozy socks, piles of blankets, and lots and lots of candles. Thankfully making all those candles on your own is easier than you think. The best part about it is that you can make candles that are completely custom for you — which means your favorite scents in containers that match your style or space.


17. DIY Waterless Snowglobes

A trendy retailer had advertised their version for an uppity price, prompting me to try and recreate them myself. And let me tell you, an obsession was born! I, of course, came armed with vintage supplies- old jars, vintage bottle brush trees, and couple of mid-century figurines. The results? 100% charming.

In the world of tea, tea bags often get a bad rap.

Even better, tea bags are convenient–no mess, no fuss…almost effortless to use!

21. DIY Coasters

I know that there are approximately 80 gazillion tutorials out there for how to make your very own DIY coasters out of 16 cent tiles from Lowes….but I think maybe the reason for this is that coasters are actually pretty useful, and even if you have some it’s always okay to have more because they don’t take up much space, and these are super easy and cheap to make, and if the person you give them to doesn’t like them it’s really easy for them to stick them in a drawer somewhere and only pull them out when you come over! Yay!
