DIY present hacks for everyone

With Christmas just around the corner, we are all looking for the best and most thoughtful gift to give to our loved ones. Regardless of the occasion giving presents to the ones you love is a very emotionally rewarding experience and not everyone can afford to go out of their way to buy someone a present. So, this video is ideas especially when you are thinking of present ideas to give to your favorite people.

1. DIY cute plant pots.
Not only these are environmentally friendly, but they are also an affordable way to give someone who loves plants a thoughtful gift. Take an eggshell that has been broken in half, then using a needle pierce the bottom. After that, add some soil inside and any seeds that you desire, preferably botanical seeds. Spray with water and wait for them to blossom. You can create different herbal little egg pots and give them to someone.

2. Family cube
If someone close to you just started having their own little family. Here is an idea. give them a family cube present. You take 8 wooden cubes and you connect them all to each other using masking tape, as you can see from our little demonstration. Use two types of pictures, square ones, and rectangular ones. Crop the images to fit every little cube as a puzzle and there you have it :). A personalized family present.

3. How to decorate anything using double-sided tape and reactive foil:
If you are looking for ways to make someone’s gift appear more festive and pleasing to look at, try this little craft technique. Take a double-sided tape and place it on your bullet journal, planner, diary or wrapping paper. Then peel the top sticker of the tape off and place your reactive foil on top. Then remove it and you will see that the foil got stuck on the double-sided tape. You can create different diamond shapes, fancy triangles and you can make it look as expensive as a Moleskine journal.

4. How to make your own cinnamon candle decorations for the holidays:
This one is quite simple, yet very interesting and one you’ll love. Take a regular round candle and add some brown craft thread around it, then take cinnamon sticks and add the inside of the thread all around the candle until you finally cover it. Lastly, add circle the thread around the candle again to secure the cinnamon sticks. And you’ve turned a simple candle into a cozy gift.

5. How to make your own soap:
This would make a perfect personalized present to any girl out there. The only thing you have to do is know which scents she likes the most.
– Peppermint – Lavender candle:
Get some soap base and cut it squares. Then, put it in a glass bowl and microwave until it melts. Then, separate it equally. In one bowl add some peppermint essential oil and green food coloring, and in another bowl add some purple food coloring and lavender essential oil. First pout the lavender oil in a soap mold, or any silicone mold. Let it sit there for a few minutes and finally add the lavender soap you just created on top. There you have a customized bathing soap to give to your loved one.

First off, no one would want an eggshell as a present. It will crack to pieces soon as they get it.
Second, with the CD case and hot glue will easily come off. There are other alternates to make that design.
Thirdly, no body has access to resin. It is quite expensive and not even a 5-minute craft. You need to wait at least a week for it to cure.
Forth, 8:04 you can use iodine salt, wash pipe(those fuzzy craft pipes you get at a craft store) and food coloring) this works over night. Plus its a lot cheaper and easy to find.
10:12 that towel can be used as a wash cloth. Those ear ring holders are cheap and you can find other ways to store them
11:40 let first set dry before putting on more layers or you’ll just get a marble effect. They seem to have fail to mention that.
