Holiday Roundup: 10 Last Minute DIY Gift Ideas

Hello lovelies! Did you all have a great weekend? Mine started out with a mean seasonal cold, but thankfully by Sunday morning I was feeling well again, thanks to this awesome natural cold syrup that Satsuki recommended to me over on twitter (thank you again Satsuki).

This week I wanted to start off the roundups I promised, with 10 great Last Minute DIY Gift Ideas. There are loads of handmade presents to make online, but once I started searching I realized that not many of them can actually be completed in a short period of time or without too many expensive supplies. So after a rather exhaustive hunt (and remember I was still ill at this point, so I might have missed a lot of great ones) I found these projects to share with you all. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a roundup of delicious and not-too-complicated recipes that are great for making and gifting. See you then! xo Ez

    I think I will be availing myself of that silhouette idea! I painted some white animal silhouettes on wood for my brother (he is a hunter, so I did deer and fish etc.) but didn't even consider doing some reversed ones as well. Genius!

    Sweet ideas! I really have fallen for the trend with gold on the inside of bowls, or on one side as in the one here. And I really like Kate's painterly silouttes, I just wish I had someone to give them to…maybe the same idea with other silouettes :-)

    Glad to hear you're feeling better! These are some super cute ideas. My weekend was dominated by a horrible migraine, but luckily I rallied yesterday in time to go tree shopping and get a few things checked off my list. :)

    Finding an ideal Birthday present for the loved ones can be stressful sometimes and I would Like to thank the writer for making it easier for Me. I was looking for a Birthday present for my elder Brother , I've bought a Laptop as Birthday gift for my tech savvy Brother, a Photo Frame and a Musical Birthday Greeting card with a Famous quote printed on It.

    Thanks again !
