Whether it is a Birthday or another other special occasion or holiday, a do-it-yourself gift is perfect to show someone that you care about them. DIY gifts are also not only fun to make, but can be very personalized to suit the receiver. Below are 5 awesome and easy DIY gift ideas!

Charming Necklace: Get some polymer clay, glaze, chains, an eye pin, and pliers for this do-it-yourself gift. With some polymer clay, make a charm that your friend would like, insert an eye pin at top of it, and bake it. Once the charm is cooled off, put some glaze on it for a shiny finish. Take the pliers and carefully attach the eye pin part of the charm onto the chain necklace.

Jar of Sweets: Get a jar, your friend’s favourite sweets, ribbon tape, scissors, glue, and a printer ready. Fill the jar with the sweets, wrap some ribbon tape around the lid of the jar, and for an extra touch, make a bow out of the tape and attach it to the circumference of the lid as well. Create a unique label on your computer, print it, cut it out, and stick it on the jar.

Decorative Cellphone Case: Get a clear or plain coloured cellphone case, E-6000 glue, and either some rhinestones or flat-back studs. Come up with a design that your friend would like, mark the cellphone case if need be, and glue the rhinestones or studs onto the cellphone case.
Studded Top: Get a top, some studs, pliers, and an x-acto knife at ready. Make small slits in the fabric near some seams of the top with the x-acto knife before inserting the studs. After inserting the studs, use the pliers to press the prongs of the studs securely into the fabric. More complicated designs, use fabric chalk as a guide. An alternative way to make a studded top is to use studs with flat backs and E-6000 glue.

Cabochon Earrings: Get some clear glass cabochons, surgical steel posts, earring backings, glaze, E-6000 glue, a small brush, scissors, and a small patterned design printed on paper. Firstly, make sure that the cabochons, steel posts, and the patterned design are of the same diameter. With the small brush, paint some glaze on the back of the cabochon, and place the cabochons onto the cut patterned designs. Stick the creation onto a steel post with glue. Repeat these steps for another earring. Add earring backings to complete the gift.
