Yesterday we tackled DIY Polka Dot wine glasses (super easy, right?). Today we will continue with an equally as easy and budget friendly gift you can make for the holidays.
We all have a handful of girlfriends we would love to gift a little something special. Here is an easy and custom gift that you can make in less than 15 mins.
– MAKE UP CASES: I picked these up at my local Dollar Tree, but I have also seen similar at H&M or Forever 21.
– GOLD LEAF PEN
– THICKERS CHIPBOARD STICKERS IN GOLD
– 10 mm JUMP RING IN NICKEL
– SMALL PIECE OF CARDBOARD
STEP 1: Tassels are all the rage and once you see how easy they are to make you will be adding them to everything. Simply get a small piece of cardboard that you wind with your embroidery thread. I like to mix up colors so I used 2 different colors here. Wind the threads to your desired thickness.
STEP 2: Open your jump ring with pliers and loop it through the top thread section of your cardboard.
STEP 3: Cut your threads from the opposite end of the cardboard and then knot a section in the middle of your threads.
STEP 4: Use your pliers to add your tassel to the make up bag. I added it to a loop I had on the side of the bag, but you could also add it to the zipper. You will then use the pliers to close the jump ring. More detailed images of tassel making here.
STEP 5: Now it’s time to customize. Use your painters tape to mark a level line where you would like your monogram to go. Then use crazy glue to attach the thickers stickers.
STEP 6: For the silver make up bag I added a multi-colored tassel as well and then decided to go with some lettering instead of a monogram. Again use painters tape to add a level line where you want your writing to go.
STEP 7: With your best handwriting write a little saying. Since it was a make up bag I decided to go with Finishing Touches.
STEP 8: All done!
Relax and admire your handiwork and make one for yourself too!
