5 DIY Gifts Your Friends Will LOVE!

Hi friends! Today I wanted to share with you a quick list of 5 (plus a bonus!) easy, cheap, yet fantastic crafty gifts that people will actually be excited about receiving! We all know it’s the thought that counts, and the people on your list will know you put a lot of thought into these awesome handmade gifts. So put that fruitcake away and have a look at these awesome gift ideas (which I also want to make ALL of them for myself as well)!

DIY Lace Candleholder

This candleholder is so elegant and looks like it was bought from an expensive home decor store, but it was made with only a few small lace doilies, some wallpaper glue and a water balloon. (Scroll down on the linked webpage for English instructions).
