If you’re stumped on stocking stuffers this year, here’s the good news: I’ve got two DIY stocking stuffer ideas for you, inspired by one of my all-time favorite blogs, Lovely Indeed. And you might have some of the supplies for them in your house already! The first is a collage kit, which can be used for making art, and the second is a mini jewelry kit.
The collage kit includes blank tags, bits of ribbon, ric rac, twine, washi tape, solid and patterned paper, a couple of pages from an old letterpressed calendar, pom poms, mini cupcake liners, feltfetti, round labels and leftover label frames. The jewelry kit contains beads of different shapes, sizes and colors, beading cord, twine and ribbon, so the gift recipient can make whatever strikes their fancy. Packed in cute reindeer cups (sorry! They’re all sold out at The Land of Nod!) and finished off with cellophane bags and striped twist ties, the kits are ready to go. These kits can serve as party favors or party activities as well. We had so much fun putting together these stocking stuffers and hope they inspire you to create a few of your own!
