so here's 3 diy presents you can still pull together before christmas:
christmas in a jar
i found this recipe about a year ago on pinterest (via dandee) and saved it for this christmas. i gave it as hostess gifts and little extras. i even kept one for myself and have been using it almost every evening for christmasy scents in the apartment. i purchased all the spices on either amazon.com, nuts.com or myspicesage.com. instead of using labels, i printed the instructions on kraft paper and then used a circle punch to make little tags which i tied around the jars with baker's twine and voila! gift!
i gave these to my dad last year for christmas (along with some garrett's popcorn, as you can see in the photo!). you can find all the supplies at a michael's or similar, and from there all you need is a hot glue gun and some twists in a pipe cleaner!
this was last year's diy gift to friends and hostesses (see more here).
plants and bulbs are always well-received!
hope this post gets the creative juices flowing for all my lovely procrastinators out there :)
