Christmas is almost here. While most of you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of last-minute Christmas shopping, I'm not surprised if some of you are even done with all the holiday shopping, and here I am, just starting with the gifts.
It's no secret that I love Christmas and all that goes with it, but I am such a big procrastinator. I loved doing things last minute. It gives me the trilled, suspense; the adrenaline rush pushed me to be more creatives. I worked more productive this way, and I thrive on the pressured circumstances, and I guess my mind designs this way.
So before you spend all your money on store-bought items, why not start making DIY gifts or even skip the same old store-bought stocking stuffers and give some holiday happiness with homemade gifts your friends and family will cherish.
Why bother with DIY Christmas gifts, you ask? Because Christmas present becomes more significant when they're homemade, your time, energy, and thoughtfulness make it more unique and always be appreciated.
Here's one of the perfect ideas for Christmas gift DIY: Personalize Mug gifts. It is effortless and affordable. This mug is the easiest and most personalize DIY present you can make.
All you need is:
Rubbing alcohol if you make a mistake.
Clear Plastic Wrap
What kind of marker do I need? You will need a paint marker (Oil base marker); you can buy it at the craft store; even Walmart carries it.
Wash your mug and dry it.
Drawing the mug using paint permanent marker
If you make a mistake, wipe it off with rubbing alcohol.
Allow your cup to dry at least for 24 hours.
Put your mug in the oven (don't turn it on yet), then turn on the oven to 450 "F and bake for 30 minutes. After baking, turn off the temperature, leave the mugs in the oven until cold and take it out of the oven.
Once the mugs are cold, put the paper inside the mug squeeze it to help give some height for the goodies. Arrange all the goodies and tape them close to each other using double-sided tape to secure them. Wrap it with clear plastic and tie it with the ribbon.
Thank you for reading. I hope this will be your inspiration for Christmas gifts. Happy holiday everyone!
