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.

Here’s how: 

GO SHOPPING

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. bridal gift
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.

I wrapped the soup bowls with a pretty colored towel.

Next I place one of the hot pads in the very bottom of the stock pot.

Now I placed three of the wrapped soup bowls on their sides and around the bottom of the stock pot.

Place the wrapped soup bowls around the bottom of the stock pot.

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.

For a little added personal touch, I added a handwritten recipe for Cheeseburger Soup. I also placed that in the top of the stock pot.

I also added a handwritten recipe for Cheeseburger Soup inside a cute note card.

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
