If you’ve waited until now to do anything gift related Christmas, congratulations on being a professional procrastinator. The malls and shopping centers are guaranteed to be packed to the rafters with similarly minded individuals who thrive on the pressure of impending deadlines.
Perhaps the crowds around the craft stores will be a little thinner. If you’ve got a little time to be crafty, here are some great last minute DIY gifts from Buzzfeed and around the web:
Colorful Lockets – Take an average looking locket and give it a pop of color with a couple of coats of nail polish.
Mason Jar Recipes – From cookies and cakes to pastas and soups, you can give the gift of a favorite recipe with dry ingredients already in the jar. Measure out all the ingredients needed and add them in pretty layers. Attach a card with the remaining ingredients like milk, eggs, and water.
Placemat Purse – Make a stylish and unique clutch purse with a placemat, hot glue, seam tape, and a magnet to close it.
Cork Coasters – If you’re a wine drinker with a bountiful collection of corks, grab 4 and add them to the center of a small picture frame to make a nifty coaster.
