Finding the perfect Christmas gift can be difficult and sometimes expensive. Fortunately, some of the greatest, most memorable gifts come from the hearts and minds of loved ones. Consider creating your own gifts this holiday season. Here are a few creative DIY Christmas gifts suggested by us here at Lincoln of Troy. Enjoy the holidays!
- Creative Mug – One of the most cost-effective, memorable gifts one can give is a creative mug. Simply buy a plain white (or color of your choice) mug and a porcelain painter pen. Draw on the cup with custom designs, let it dry, then wrap it in a box and bow. Your loved one will think of you every time they use the mug!
- Jewelry Storage Frame – Odds are you know someone with too much jewelry. They obviously need a place to store it and there are few compartments more accessible than a jewelry storage frame. Find a frame and use half a sheet of plywood backing up to size. Add hooks and screws for hanging purposes. Use gorilla glue, a stapler, and mesh to create the backing. Decorate as you see fit.
- Custom Camera Strap – Camera straps are relatively cheap and can make the perfect gift for your family photographer. Buy one in any color and add acrylic craft paint, a few swivel hooks, and some leather or vinyl for a sophisticated touch.
