I'm so excited to share this collection of 150 Frugal DIY Gift Ideas with you. You will see project ideas from me, and my Thrift Store Decor Team friends. They are such a talented bunch of ladies, that I'm sure you will find something to make for everyone in your family. You still have lots of time, and most of these Frugal DIY Gift Ideas are very simple and inexpensive!
Here are my favorites from the group (in no particular order).
Makeover on a Pair of Candlesticks
Christy from Our Southern Home got a great deal on these candlesticks. I think I would have passed them by. After working her magic, they are multi-purpose candlesticks!
Frugal DIY Gift Ideas | Coasters
Sadie Seasongoods Sarah made these simple wooden coasters that could be customized to almost everyone you know! I love the fabric and the wood tones, don't you?
Bottles With Bling
Who doesn't love pretty bottles? As Kathy (Petticoat Junktion) mentions, you probably have enough stuff in your stash to make one of these glass bottles decorated with vintage jewelry. I am so envious of Kathy's collection of vintage jewelry!
Vintage Candy Dish Handmade Candle
If I'm being completely honest, I've never been a fan of these vintage amber dishes. But! After seeing what Pam from House of Hawthornes did, I'm wishing I could make some of these homemade candles!
Crafty Mason Jar | Fill With Fun, Quirky Craft Supplies
Do you love this Frugal DIY Gift Idea as much as I do? The possibilities are endless. I love how Kristen from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia embellished this Craft Lover Gift! Bonus! Your recipient can repurpose the Mason jar!
Easy Succulent Planter
If you love thrift store shopping, I'm guessing that you already have random teacups you love. If so, you can make this oh so cute teacup succulent planter. Maryann (Domestically Speaking) will show you everything you need to know.
Now, the time has come for me to choose just ONE of my projects. This isn't going to be easy . . . .
Mason Jar Tissue Holders
Well, in fact it WAS easier than I thought it would be. I will admit that I was swayed by how popular these Mason Jar Tissue holders are on Pinterest. They have been shared over 100,000 times. I get notifications every couple of hours that someone has shared them again!
