Pinterest Experiments - Craft Work

DIY Gift For Any Occasion

I'm definitely no artist!

Great first line, I know, but I'm being honest. I'm trying new things this year, so I'm having to step into lanes with things I'm not so comfortable with. Arts and crafts has been a lane that I've usually avoided. I found a craft I was sure I could do, even at my skill level of none to nonexistent!!

I searched Pinterest for something I could do for a birthday/Valentine's Day gift. I wanted to make something myself because I feel it gives things a more personal touch. I found a great project idea and here's what I decided to do with it!

This was a very simple task to do with not many steps.

Sharpie markers
Stuffed animal of your choice (you could also replace the stuffed
animal with candy, flowers, tickets to a Beyonce concert, whatever!!)
a bowl & a cup

I bought the colorful Sharpie markers and love sock monkey from Wal-Mart. I bought this bowl and cup from the Dollar Tree. I spent no more than a few dollars. Let me show you have easy this was:

1. I wrote the messages I wanted on each (the bowl and the cup)
2. Then baked them both in the oven on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Look at that?! Prep time took only about 10 minutes! Everything looked good and I was very proud of my turnout. I may have to change the number of Pinterest experiments from 1 per month to 2 or 3!!

What are some DIY gifts you've made for special occasions?!!
