When I was researching yesterday’s post about D-I-Y gifts, I stumbled upon a link to make this fun hat/wig combo, which would be perfect to wear while I trail behind the kids as they go trick-or-treating next month.
Anthropologie has so many cool gifts that could also easily be D-I-Y, if you are so inclined (which generally I am NOT).
First, these Celebration Jars could be tailored to almost any recipient or occasion and are cutely packaged in a mason jar. Love those felt crowns! Kids could also even make these as a D-I-Y favor at a birthday party.
This is a set of small gifts, one for each day of the recipient’s birthday week. Fun!
How about this sweet little mouse? She could be made in a re-purposed Altoids tin.
More ideas for a re-purposed tin are here.
Happy crafting! Send me some completed projects, please. 😉
Recently I saw this oversized Mason jar candle holder online, but it was sold out from the store by the time I got there to check it out.
It holds a large three-wick candle, and I thought this would be perfect for a casual outdoor gathering, provided that spring and summer eventually show up.
Even though I struck out with the above, I found some cool DIY projects that are even better.
Check out these glittered jars from Cakerypapery:
So simple to make! Here’s how.

Ok, here’s the coolest one of them all, glow-in-the-dark jars:
Will someone please make me a set of these? Here are the instructions.
