The Perfect Last-Minute DIY Gifts
We’ve all been there before. You have just a few days before a friend’s birthday or Mother’s Day, but you want a gift that shows how much you care. You want something that looks put together and not thrown together.
I’ve collected some of my favorite handmade gifts below that you can make in just a matter of minutes or hours.
An Amazon Prime membership comes in handy for some of the supplies, but you can also find many materials at your local craft store.
Shop Supplies for DIY Gifts
Many of these DIY gifts use the materials below, and it’s always good to have some of these handy for last-minute projects.
Wooden Items to Use with Mod Podge
You can decoupage any number of wooden items. Here are some great items to consider for DIY gifts.
Canvas Totes and Tea Towels to Paint
You could paint just about anything on a white canvas or fabric. Try starting with some of these, and see the tutorials above for recommendations on paint.
Mason Jars for Crafts
Mason jars are all the rage these days. You can paint or decorate these jars or use them as pretty containers for sugar scrubs, soaps or even homemade fruit preserves.
I have used scrapbook paper for tons of DIY gifts over the years. With pretty papers, you can create DIY banners, decoupage gifts or stationery.
