10 things i love: handmade gifts

The 10 things i love this week is all about DIY/handmade gifts! For all crafters out there that are still looking for christmas gift ideas!
I personally love giving people handmade gifts. Personal, individual and unique gifts are the best, don’t you think? At least from what I experienced, my friends/family love beautifully made DIY much more than things you simply buy. And as the following gift ideas/tutorials show you, it can be so easy and inexpensive!

  1. Once upon a time (long long ago)… I made macrame: net bags, hanging baskets, bags, … and now (more than 30 years later) there are macrame bracelets. But I like it 🙂
    And I like the other things too.

  2. I LOVE the teacup candle idea–have always wanted to do that. I only want clean-burning candles like soy candles these days, so wouldn’t use paraffin, but I’ve heard there are soy wax beads you can buy and melt down!

    1. I fell in love with the teacup candles as well, but unfortunately I don’t have any nice looking porcelain cups. Maybe after the next trip to the flea market… 🙂 Soy wax beads sound like a good idea!
