I just recently found out about DIY gift exchanges and thought about how cool that would be. But then I would need to make friends with people who actually enjoy doing DIY projects because I believe my friends and family in LA would be too lazy to agree to this idea. So instead of exchanging gifts I thought about giving DIY gifts. DIY gifts are amazing because 1) The giver saves money 2) A lot of thought and time is put into what the giftee shall receive 3) Very few people in the world will have a present exactly like it. So here are some ideas for people who haven't bought their gifts for friends yet and would maybe like to save some money. They could also make great stocking stuffers. You have 2 days left, which is plenty of time to buy materials and make one of these babies below!
1. Box Braid Necklace - Honestly WTF
2. Braided Hex Nut Bracelet - Honestly WTF
4. Braided Woven Curb Chain Bracelet - The Dapper Bun
6. Pom Pom Beanie - Honestly WTF
7. DIY No Sew Leather Clutch - Absurdly Peculiar
Oh and because I am too lazy to buy Christmas cards, I made a couple:
(Inside note: Sometimes it sucks to be green!)
I know, lame joke..but I seriously laughed out loud when I was looking at this card a couple nights ago.
My favorite card EVER.
I made this for my friend who is not only a fan of Ryan Gosling but the tumblr site, Hey girl. If you haven't heard of it, take a look...it amuses my friend a plenty. Here is some Hey Girl for crafters.
Having fun being lazy and eating a lot in Phoenix. ESPECIALLY eating some amazingly-bad-for-you fry bread. I was introduced to that goodness today. Heading home on Christmas Eve! Happy Holidays everyone!!
