Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas

DIY Glitter Rimmed Mason JarsDIY GLITTER RIMMED MASON JARS Made using old canning jars. Add an arrangement of flowers or even makeup (even paint) brushes for a complete gift.

I can assure you I’m not the craftiest person in the world, more stubborn than crafty but if I can make these gifts, so can you. We’ve got everything from decorative jars, to candles, to scrubs (both salt and sugar) to play dough for the kids to even a DIY mirror spruce up from that goodwill or garage sale find. You might even find you don’t want to give a few of these away and keep them for yourselves. They’re all budget friendly and like I said incredibly easy to make. A little time, a little glitter (because sparkle all the things) and you’ve got yourself a thoughtful gift to give for the holidays (or just because you want to make someone smile, there should be more of that in life.)

DIY Cinnamon Wrapped Candle www.bellalimento.comDIY CINNAMON WRAPPED CANDLEYou can buy cinnamon sticks and vanilla candles in bulk for extra savings.

I am a candle person, and we’ve got 4 to choose from. Whether you like, coffee, cinnamon, a more rustic looking log candle (you’ll need a power tool for this one but it’s still doable) or a serene floating candle, we’ve got you covered. These make great hostess gifts if you’re invited over for a dinner party.
