Holly Bloggy After Party: Homemade Gifts

As promised, all week I’ll be featuring some ideas from the Holly Bloggy. Here are just a few of the fabulous ideas that were submitted to the Homemade Gift Event over at Tater Tots and Jello. It was nearly impossible to pick just a few items to feature. Everything looks so great! I finally managed to pick out a handful, but I must say, if you haven’t been over to Jen’s place yet, you have to go over there and take a look around and all the great ideas!

I just love these cones. The creator filled these with candy and set them out on the table at resturant where she was meeting friends. What a creative idea! And hangers would also make them a perfect tree ornament after all that candy is gone!

Isn’t this plate adorable? I just love personalized stuff. I really need to try some of this mod podge stuff. I’m always seeing the coolest projects made with it!

From: The Boatwright Family
And more mod podge! These coasters were made with wrapping paper! So if you like to do mod podge or any kind of paper crafts but you’re on a budget, this is an inexpensive option for you! I just love the designs used here! So festive!

These little bowls look so elegant, and when you add a candle inside they give off a beautiful glow! Jen’s also created a lovely star, which I’d love to have on my tree!

You guys never cease to amaze me with your creativity! This message board was made from an old window! I love that it’s a decorative yet purposeful gift, and it’s also personalized! Fantastic!

From: Tidy Mom
Cheryl made these great sugar scrubs! I’ve seen a lot of homemade spa gifts but none made with sugar! This is definitely on my list of future projects to try!

Here’s another project I’ve been wanting to try! I just love these jars full of delicious ingredients. Jen filled these with everything you need to make spiced hot chocolate. Yum! And aren’t accents cute?



  1. Everything is wonderful! I have really enjoyed checking out everyone's creations 🙂

  2. Lots of cute ideas!

  3. Thanks for stopping by and featuring my coasters! I give full credit to my hubby for the wrapping paper idea. I've given out several sets of these coasters as hostess gifts this year and everyone truly loves them. I'm new to crafts, and am loving the blog world – so many great ideas, and great people!

  4. Thanks for including my message board, my daughter liked it so much she found us four more windows on Craig's List….more to come!
