DIY Christmas Gifts make an awesome Christmas Gift. They will make a memorable Holiday especially if you make them with love.
You can even have your children give you a hand with your DIY project. A memory that will last a lifetime.
Christmas is just around the corner, if you are anything like I am, money is tight so a DIY project fits right into my budget.
So this year, I’m looking for inexpensive things to make for gifts, things are unique, and hopefully things I have a multitude of laying around that can be easily and readily accessed.
Here is something you might have an abundance of, twigs & sticks and cans & glass jars.
I have seen these candle holders made with glass jars (usually canning jars), sticks or twigs, a bit of twine or natural jute and some hot glue.
It’s very simple, you break the twigs to just a little taller than the glass jar, hot glue the twigs to the jar, you can go sparse or you can completely cover the glass (I think I prefer the full coverage look). Make sure the twigs all line up at the base so it will sit flat.
Then you can wind some twine or jute around the outside in a decorative manner, tie a pretty bow or a plain knot, drop in a candle and voila! You have an instant gift. You could also use an empty, clean can, glue the twigs around the can, tie with jute and you have a great looking container for candy, pencils or whatever you wish to fill it with.
