GIFT.guide.DIY.

As much as I love getting the latest and the greatest for Christmas, sometimes homemade gifts are the best.  The time, thought, and love put into these gifts make even the simplest sentiments special. While I think Pinterest has everybody thinking they are the next Martha Stewart, I've rounded up my fav DIYS that most people wont screw up, and I  would love to receive. 

Easy, cost effective, and on trend.  Use any platter. 


I'm super obsessed with gold accents lately and the options are endless with gold leafing. 

There is no such thing as too many friends or too many friendship bracelets.  How cute and dainty are these?

How classy is a little bit of Champs and a little bit of sparkle?! 

Sharpie art is popping up everywhere these days.  I'd go for metallic for sure and an unexpected dish.  Love the way these look. 

DIY FORT (FOR KIDS, DOGGIES, OR REALLY COOL ADULTS)
What kid doesn't love a fort?!  Follow these instructions but use 6 ft sticks instead of  3ft for children. Less than $20! 

Options are endless with colors and accessories.  Would look super cute with a unique soap dish. 

Are you going to try any DIY's this year?  If so I want to see how they come out!
