DIY Gifts for Friends!

This Christmas I was feeling a little bit inspired by the lovely Pinterest so I decided to combine a few pins I saw to create gifts for my friends. I was going for a combination of THIS, THIS & THIS.

I bought several teacups at Ikea ($3.99) that included the cup and saucer, a bag of shaved soy candle wax ($9.99 – Use a 40% off coupon that you can get HERE)  and wicks from Hobby Lobby, and some Pebeo Porcelain 150 pens (roughly $3.99 each) from blick.com.

I bought 1 Pebeo Porcelain Outliner for texture and one Pebeo Porcelain Marker for easy writing. Paint it on how ever you’d like, let it sit for 24 hours and then bake it at 300 Degrees for 30 minutes. After it’s cooled you can use the porcelain to eat and cook with and can be washed in the dishwasher!

I also made some simple and easy hair pins using some jewelry pearls that you can get from any craft store tied to the ends of bobby pins using clear elastic string (you can also use wire).

I’ll definitely be making these cuties again!. It’s a great way to customize any gift to your friends individual personality.

Hope you enjoyed!
