Fun Soup Theme DIY Gift Idea

You do not need to spend a lot of money to create a truly awesome, fun, neat DIY gift. With just a little money, a little time and a little creativity you can make a fun Soup Theme DIY gift as well.

Here’s how:


First of all, I wanted to create a DIY gift that was fun, unique and practical for an upcoming wedding. Therefore 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.

Assembling it was the fun part! The beautiful white table cloth I purchased for $5, was carefully taken out of it’s packaging and unfolded it. (Love the lacy pattern in the center and around the edges.) No need to iron 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 the different colors. Each soup bowl was carefully wrapped in a pretty towel, then the ends were drawn-up and secured with a rubber band around the top.

I wrapped the soup bowls with a pretty colored towel.

The next step was to place a hot pad was placed in the very 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.

The final touch was to wrap the entire gift inside the white tablecloth with an added ribbon. I gathered the tablecloth at the top and secured it in place with rubber bands. You could use a smaller tablecloth and wrap a bow around the top instead.

Make this gift with a SPORTS THEME by using sports related items such as a favorite teams towels or these neat NFL Pittsburgh Steelers 23-Ounce Sculpted Gametime BowlOr if you like the bowls I used you can find them here Handled Stoneware Soup Mugs.
