****Last Minute DIY Gifts****


Don't bother going out to the mall for those last minute gifts and instead give these amazing DIYs a try.  I promise you won't regret gluing your table to the floor or stabbing yourself a million times with wire.....



Still have friends and relatives to check off your Christmas shopping list?  Can't bear to spend another day with all the clueless men shopping for ridiculous sweaters asking "My wife is about your size..what do you think about this?" or be spritzed one more time by that damn fragrance associate you passed by just about everyday for the last two weeks and said no thank you too every time?  Well then I ask that you make one quick stop to your local craft store ( I know its another busy store but the fellow customers will be much more pleasant) and the another stop to the liquor store (red or white will do), go home, put a good movie on or DVR'ed shows you haven't been able to catch up on and get ready to knock out that unknown coworker you got for Secret Santa, your Aunt May who you can't even remember and that friend who has it all.  This post is filled with amazing handmade gifts that you can have wrapped up by tomorrow.  Enjoy!!!


SHABBY CHIC EARRING HOLDER FROM KEVINANDAMANDA.COM

Does your friend own more accessories than she can wear in a year?  Does your cousin empty out a drawer full of chain and beads in search of her other earring?  Then this would be the perfect gift for them.  I came across this amazing tutorial on KevinandAmanda.com, a delightful blog full of inspiring things to try (including recipes) and interestingly free fonts. With a budget of only $10 and about 30min to make (give or take a minute or two to unstaple your finger) this is quick and easy with a fantastic end result.
