Fun Things to Make

Brooch Ribbon Necklace How-to 1.  Brooch Ribbon Necklace How-to ~ Take old and broken brooches, or even buy some inexpensive ones, “antique” them with a bit of spraypaint, link them together and attach to a ribbon.  Voila – a fab necklace that is reminiscent of Anthropologie, but is closer to a Target price tag. Fun Things to Make 2.  Thread and Rhinestone Bracelets {DIY}Spruce up some old bangles that you don’t wear anymore.  By just wrapping them in thread and adding some rhinestone chain for a little bling, you will have a brand-spankin’ new piece of jewelry.  And since this craft is super affordable, they would also make great Christmas presents. Christmas Gift for Woman 3.  Ruffled Clutch Tutorial ~ This clutch is so beautiful and versatile.  I looks great with a casual outfit, but could be dressy enough for a formal occasion. Fun Things to Make 4.  Holiday Bath Tea {Bath & Beauty} ~ Using the right herbs, essential oils and salts, you can create the scent of the holidays, or just about anything else you like.  This bath & beauty gift is an inexpensive yet thoughtful way to help your friends unwind and soak up the season.

6.  Glammed Up Gloves ~ No need to have boring gloves this winter season.  A little bling goes a long way.

7.  Homemade Coffee Scrub Gift {Recipe}I just love the smell of coffee.  This super easy recipe make a great body scrub that you can use at home or package up and give away as a gift.  Great for teachers, co-workers, or thank you gifts.
