DIY Christmas Gifts

DIY Christmas Gifts

1.  Art Supply Pouch ~ These colorful pouches make a great way to organize art supplies and are a fun gift for your little artist.  Your favorite teacher would enjoy this colorful organizational tool too.  And as a mom, this is a stylish way to carry crayons in your purse to keep the little ones busy.

Friendship Bracelet

2.  Friendship Bracelet Kit ~ This kit is quick and easy to put together – great to give as a birthday or back to school gift.  Don’t forget to print out the free tag to add to your clipboard.

3.  Stuffed Harry Potter Doll ~ The scar, the glasses, the wand, this handmade Harry Potter has it all.  Use this pattern to sew your Potter fan their very own wizard.

4.  Scrabble Tile Necklace How-to ~ These scrabble tile necklace are so cute and super easy to make.  The possibilities are endless.  Use anything from a scrap of paper to a printed photo.

5.  MP3 Player Pocket Pillowcase ~ A MP3 Player Pocket Pillowcase – it is exactly what it sounds like.  There is a pocket with strap to hold an MP3 player while napping or relaxing.  Keeps that MP3 player right where you want it.

What To Make For Kids

Gloves for Teens and Kids

6.  Rockin’ Dollar Gloves ~ Make a rockin’ pair of gloves using knit dollar gloves from Target. This is a great gift idea for teens, or any rocker!

Fabric Slap Bracelets

7.  Spruced Up Slap Bracelets ~ All kids (and some grown-ups {wink}) love slap bracelets.  But let’s face it, they’re not always a desirable match to your nice clothing.  Check out this tutorial and turn those plastic slap bracelets into little works of art.

Polka Dot Purse
8.  Petite Purse Tutorial ~ At a little over 5 inches, this purse would be great for little girls.  But as mentioned in the post, a growing trend this season is little purses for “big girls” as well.  It’s the ideal size for carrying the basic essentials and won’t keep you weighed down.

9.  Scrappy Headband with Flowers ~ Make a headband from left over fabric scraps to match a handmade dress.  I love the shabby look of the fabric flowers.  And it just ties in the back, so you don’t have to worry about sizing.

10.  Lace Belt Tutorial ~ This cute belt is perfect for adding a pretty detail to a basic outfit.  The belt is also reversible, with a strip of patterned fabric on the back.

Boys Belt

11.  Super Cool Boys Belt ~ It’s hard to make things for boys, but here is the perfect thing! This belt took 15 minutes to make and it goes perfect with almost everything!

12.  Miniature Marshmallow Gun ~ These miniature marshmallow guns are so much fun!  You place a mini marshmallow into the end of the gun, blow on the other end and the marshmallow aims at the target.  The tutorial includes instructions for the pvc pipe gun and goggles.

Fort Kit

13.  ‘Super Hero’ Fort Kit ~ I absolutely ADORE this fort building kit for kids.  I’ve never met a kid who didn’t like to get all the blanket and cushions and try to build a fort.  This little kit not only makes it OK, but helps make it a little easier to keep it standing and provides them with everything they need, including instructions.

What to Make for Kids

14.  Skateboard Sling ~ This cool skateboard sling is perfect for toting a skateboard to and from the skate park. You could make this out of scraps, pick up a skateboard and some safety equipment, and have a great gift for any boy!

  1. I love all of these ideas and I wanted to make the felt Harry potter but the website with the pattern is no longer working 🙁 So sad because I wanted to make this. You can’t even comment on the blog to let the owner know.
