Once upon a time I made my dad a patchwork magnet that was supposed to look like him driving his truck… it turned out about as well as you just imagined, or worse. Of course he still used the magnet on account of the fact that I made it, but I’d like to think that my taste in handmade gifts has improved since then. So, I put together a list of some of my favorite DIY projects to get you inspired to create rather than buy this year.
1 leather pouch by Sugar & Cloth for Poppytalk // 2 makeup utensil holder by House of Earnest // 3 postage stamp coasters on Design*Sponge // 4 ethnic wrap clutch by Swell Mayde // 5 stitched and patterned shower curtain on Design Love Fest // 6 custom stamped leather tie clips by Lovely Indeed // 7 unisex chef’s apron by The Purl Bee // 8 cutting board by Oh Happy Day // 9 secret family recipes book on Real Simple // 10 monogram marquee letter by Sugar & Cloth for Grey Likes Nesting // 11 printable elixir bottle labels by Eat Drink Chic // 12 vintage tin candles on Design*Sponge // 13 morning, noon, and night salt scrubs on Real Simple
