DIY Christmas Gift Ideas for Mom and Grandma
DIY Paper Flower Wreath
Grab a pre-made grapevine wreath and add some paper flowers to it for a DIY paper wreath that blooms all year. Check out our tips for choosing the best cardstock for paper flowers and grab a free flower template off the internet. For a DIY Christmas wreath, use our free paper poinsettia template.
Paper Flower Shadow Box
Whip up paper flowers in several styles and colors and add them to a shadow box. This is a beautiful handmade gift that really packs a punch. You can also use vinyl to add a name or sentiment to the glass.
DIY Christmas Gift Idea for Dad or Grandpa
Wallet Gift Card Holder
Gift cards are great gifts, especially when you package it in a creative way. Try this paper wallet card for a cool gift idea for dad or grandpa. This project has an added layer of cool when you use Kraft-Tex Paper Fabric.
DIY Christmas Gifts for Teens and Kids
Giant Paper Flowers for Room Decor
These giant paper flowers are perfect for DIY teen room decor and they make a great selfie background. Watch the giant paper video tutorial over on our YouTue channel and try your hand at making your own.
Shrink Plastic Charms or Earrings
You can make the coolest customized charms or earrings with our Shrink Plastic. Stamp, draw or even print (on the printable shrink plastic version) your designs, then heat them up and watch the magic happen. Our Design Team Members have had so much fun playing with this. Monica made fall charms, and Kate made shaker bits for a shaker card and Tarot inspired earrings.
Customized Paper Monogram Letter
These paper monogram letters are so fun to customize and make great room decor for a child. Choose a child's favorite super hero or cartoon character and dress up their initial with the colors and characters of your inspiration. Kids love these personalized gifts.
Paper Flower Crown
This gorgeous paper flower crown is the perfect dress up accessory and completes a princess outfit perfectly. Though this looks super fancy, the process is actually fairly easy. Follow along with our paper flower bouquet tutorial, but cut the stems short and attach them to a headband.
DIY Christmas Gift Idea For Significant Other
Why I Love You Mini Album
This is such a special gift that will be treasured for years to come. We have this tagged as a gift for a spouse or partner, but really, this is a gift that would be cherished by anyone. Make heart shaped pages, include a photo and write a short message on each page. This is a fun album to make for grandma or grandpa as well and each child can write a message.
DIY Christmas Gift for Teacher
Personalized Shaker Desk Magnet
We love this idea for a teacher appreciation gift any time of year, but it's also a great Christmas gift for a teacher or co-worker. Create a personalized shaker magnet that sticks to the teacher's desk. Make a generic one for all year round, or dress it up with a holiday themed tag.
So there you have it. DIY Christmas gift ideas for everyone on your list!
