You don’t have to spend a lot of money to give a truly awesome, fun, neat gift. With just a little money, a little time and a little creativity you can make a fun DIY gift too.
I wanted to create a DIY gift that was fun, unique and practical for an upcoming wedding so I put my ‘creative cap’ on and went shopping. I purchased a 12 quart stock pot, four soup bowls, microfiber towels, two pot holders, a ladle and a round table cloth.
Now comes the fun part! Putting it all together. I purchased a beautiful white table cloth for $5, took it out of it’s packaging and unfolded it. (Love the lacy pattern in the center and around the edges.) I didn’t bother ironing the tablecloth because I am actually using it as the wrapping paper.
I loved the idea of the different colored soup bowls and was fortunate to find towels that matched in color.
I wrapped each soup bowl in a pretty towel and placed a rubber band around the top to keep the towel in place.
Next I placed the second hot pad on top of the soup bowls and place the remaining soup bowl on top of the hot pad. I also gently inserted the soup ladle, along with the stock pot lid.
The final touch was to “wrap” the entire gift inside the white tablecloth add a fun ribbon. I gathered the tablecloth at the top an wrapped a couple of rubber-bands around the top to keep it all together. You could use a smaller tablecloth and wrap a bow around the top instead of in the center too.
***Make this gift with a SPORTS THEME by using sports related items such as a favorite teams towels or these neat NFL Pittsburg Steelers Football Soup Bowls found here: NFL Pittsburgh Steelers 23-Ounce Sculpted Gametime Bowl
Or if you like the bowls I used you can find them here: Handled Stoneware Soup Mugs
There ya go! I had fun putting this all together and it was easy peasy!
