Blogmas 1: DIY Gift Guide

DIY Gift Guide for the Holidays, by Courtney Tomesch

I love giving and making gifts for friends and family. But I always stress out over making or getting them the perfect gift. Over the years I have made a ton of gifts and had all intentions to write up a blog post on them just never got around to it. So I'm going to post a collection of gifts I have made  over the years (linking the original tutorial so you can make the gifts too.)

I made a pair of Galaxy shoes and every time I wear them out I get a ton of compliments. These are super easy to make and can be customizable to fit any person you want to give them too

This is the same techneque as the Nerdy onesies, but you really can use that on anything and everything. You don't have to just use Avenger logos. I heard you can also make stencils on a vinyl cutting machine if you have one of those.

Warning paper crafts take forever to complete! I thought this was going to be a simple gift but it wasn't. A tip to make sure it works best for you is try and find a fast drying glue, and also keep your fingers clean from glue. it will transfer to the paper. Over all I did enjoy how this Direwolf turned out.

Felt Harry Potter Ornaments
To make these I just googled symbols from Harry Potter, traced them on to felt and and hand stitch them together. It's super fun and all the Potter Fans in my life loved them last year!
