Add creativity and heart to your holiday with easy DIY homemade crafts.


It doesn’t matter if you have the best crafting skills or some that leave a little to be desired, a DIY gift is from the heart. We've rounded up some handmade gifts that are extremely easy to pull off, as long as you have some patience, creativity, and love to give. Try them out and remember to leave yourself enough time to send them to your loved ones.

Handmade Christmas Candles

Not only do candles smell amazing, but they also look charming on a Christmas table setup. Candles add warmth, light and are a lovely way to spread a little Christmas cheer!

Make handmade candles with just basic supplies like wax, a wick, and a container, and a little bit of know-how. The best part about this gift is that you can customise everything that goes into it, limited only by your imagination and your willingness to experiment. If the receiver is sensitive to fragrance, you can choose to leave it out and opt for an essential oil to scent your candle instead. The extra concern and gesture makes the gift twice as special.

“Mistletoe” Mason Jar

Pamper your loved ones this holiday season. If bath bombs are not something your sisters or girlfriends are into, why not send them a customised Spa Pedicure in a Jar? Fill a jar with everything she would need for a parlour-worthy pedicure. All you need to do is head down to your local store or chemist and snag some at home pedicure supplies like a foot file, cuticle cutter, nail polish remover, cotton pads etc. For an extra touch, match the gift tag to the nail polish for a gram worthy picture.

DIY Flower Printed Tote

Do your bit for the environment while also creating a special gift.

There are many ways to dye a tote bag, but did you know you can dye the cloth tote bag by pounding flowers? Start with a clean bag and slip a piece of wax or parchment paper inside to keep the flower dye from leaking through. Use flowers like marigold or petunias that have more pigment in them. Take off any access foliage and lay them out on the bag. Secure them with masking tape and slowly hammer away making sure to hit every inch of the flowers. Peel the tape and flowers off to reveal your print. If you want to fill in some gaps, just repeat the process. Leave it to dry. Lastly, put a piece of parchment paper on top of the bag and iron over your design with a hot, dry iron. This will help the colours set in and keep them from fading. This one is not only fun creating but is sure to turn out really beautiful.
