10 days left untill Christmas.
It is time to really get crafting.
Joy and happiness drives everyone around us into an almost mad state in which one should simply find the perfect non-existent gift for everyone loved. This translates into pure joy in the night of the 24th and 25th, a simple moment that we`ve all waited for so long. A selection of personal easy DIY gifts has been curated for the gallery below. These are beautiful crafts, gifts that one would actually like to receive. Cast a glance and leave your valuable feedback in the comment section below.
Up-Cycle and RE-PURPOSE an Everyday Item
An item that has already been in your home has memory, experience, personality unlike a new, bare, unrelated item that everyone can just purchase. In the picture below Courtney has materialized a beautiful picture frame out of an old clock frame and the resulting do it yourself project is simply stunning. A leather belt can also help you craft, creating contrast between the white stark of the metal frame and beautiful texture of leather, regardless of color.
You can start this craft anytime if you have a thrift store nearby or simply have an old clock lying around.

RE-PURPOSE beautiful containers
A lot of energy is invested in little mass produced items that we overlook daily. It might seem irrelevant to many but the simple gesture of re-purposing can go a long way in the long run especially if you scale the process. A simple galvanized bucket, a ceramic flower pot or a Midcentury container holding a beautifully arranged succulent composition can cost little to nothing and the result will be much appreciated.

materialize an airy breathing geo-air plant hanger
Plants are probably one of the most beautiful gift that one can offer. Natural, priceless, airy and graphic; they can enrich almost any decor. You can serve plants in various sizes but it is very hard to go wrong with a minimalist presentation. The DIY Air Plant Hangers showcased below have been found Homey Oh My! and their simplicity is honored.

Naturalness in color can create splendid results with small efforts. The technique below is entitled “paper marbling” and happily it does not involve toxic substances so it`s definitely a craft that would work beautifully if realized with your loved ones. You can always use Christmas colors to obtain that holiday vibe.
