Last weekend, PID and I were invited to a wedding. We - like idiots - waited way too long (either that, or other invitees were WAY too on-the-ball) and there was barely anything left on the couple's registry.
I didn't want to be "that guest" who just bought a few random things because it was all that was left. So instead, I tapped into my creative juices and headed to Michael's.
So instead of something they ACTUALLY wanted, Mrs. & Mrs. L received a Macy's gift card and these personalized, hand-painted door hangers - one for every season.
Sometimes, hand-crafted gifts can be tacky, so it's always good to judge your audience. I certainly hope that the new Mr. & Mrs. will give them a lovely new home on their doors.
I simply ran to Michael's, picked up four wooden plaques, a few unfinished seasonal shapes and letters, some craft paint, hemp rope, and a matte finishing spray. Then let your creativity shine!
Congratulations to the happy new couple!
What are some other crafts that you've given as gifts?
