Making Special Gifts

If you are the type of person who likes to really give someone something really special like I do, I feel you pain and struggle when you try to think of what to get them that will be special. Tip for all you special gift givers: make them something! If they haven’t been wanting something or have a list, then make them something you know they will like. A lot of times it is cheaper and easier to think of when you decide to make something.

For instance, my friend just moved into her first house after college. I knew she was going to be nervous, excited, and all sorts of feelings in one. When you move into a house by yourself it really needs to feel homy. Living alone is already nerve racking enough, living in a house that doesn’t feel comfortable, or yours is not going to help the situation! I wanted to make her some sort of decoration that I knew she didn’t have, and could definitely use.

I diy vaseknow she loves wine, and she also loves that burlap, hemp, rustic, natural colors kind of look, so I thought I would wrap bottles up in hemp. I couldn’t believe how easy it was either. I just took some super glue and glued down the start of the wrapping, and then every so often I would add some glue to the bottle to make sure it stayed in place, and then at the very end of the hemp wrapping I added some glue.

I love that she can totally use these however she wants! She can add real or fake flowers, or use it as a bracelet holder, or just leave them as is! When she opened them up she absolutely loved them! they definitely went withe
