I might as well be a Who from Whoville, because I absolutely love this time of year! I love everything about it: the giving, decorating, treats, shopping, contagious spirit, and the birth of Jesus. Pure magic! However, if we let it, finding the perfect gift for EVERYONE on our list can quickly become overwhelming, stressful, and expensive. I am hear to help you! I have compiled all my gift-able DIYs in one convenient space just for you! Make your gifts more personable this year by creating one of my DIY Christmas Gift ideas. I promise these ideas are good!

A wreath instantly warms up a space, whether it be for the front porch, pantry, near your fireplace, a window or the base of a centerpiece. So, why not give one as a gift? Make the gift even more special and DIY! Wreaths are super simple, and don’t have to cost much either. Check out some of my ideas below.
DIY Cement Planter
Do you have a plant lover in your life? I know I have several! Why not buy them an indoor plant from your local grocery store and place it in a custom cement planter made by you!?! Planters can be pricey, so why not make your own!? Not only is the material cheap, but a mold can be created out of virtually any material found at home. Don’t want to make your own mold? Amazon has lots of premade silicone ones like the one I used (click here). Anyone with a green thumb will love the personal touch of this inexpensive DIY. I made several this past summer and had so much fun with them! Now if only I was better at keeping the plants alive..

Personalized Book Stacks
Personalized book stacks are a great way to personalize your space, so why not give the gift of personalization?! I plan to make a Christmas stack soon. These charming stacks are cheap and easy to make! Book stacks are a perfect way to celebrate a new home (“Home Sweet Home”), marriage (Mr & Mrs, new last name, wedding date), baby (baby name, birthday, time of birth, weight, height), or even a new dog (family stack with an additional book for the new pup)!

Diy Lazy Susan
Who on your Christmas list appreciates organization more than Marie Kondo? I have a great gift idea! A lazy susan! Take it a step further by customizing one like I did using jute rope. I recently rediscovered the genius invention that is a lazy susan and I am never going back! I want one for every room! They have great functionality by allowing you to use corners effectively and keep spaces tidy.

Can you believe I used actual mud to transform this planter?! Actual mud!? Check out the link below to see the before. Playing in the mud brought me back to my childhood in the best way. Giving the gift of mud may sound super weird, but hear me out! Keep reading! Mud painting is such a fun way to transform any décor such as a planter, vase, tray, or decorative bowl.

Reversed Canvas with a Shiplap Twist
A reversed canvas is a fun and easy way to personalize your space! I have one in every room of our house. A reversed canvas makes for a great gift too! I usually fill my frames with canvas or large photos, but recently discovered this awesome shiplap version! Who on your list could use one of these?? Don’t like your lettering? I have a tutorial to help you with that too! PS: I cheat! Check it out below!
