Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog post. It’s been a while since I published a blog post. I had to pause a little the blogging due to having a lot of things to deal with during my absence of blogging. It’s a long story but I’m glad that I’m back to write again. Today’s post will be Christmas theme. And it will be about Awesome DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas
I will have a couple of posts that will be about Christmas this month. Well, I’m yet to get back blogging about DIY projects. For now, I have other things that I need to take care of before starting to make projects again. So, I have other ways to share Christmas posts and there will be a lot of new ideas coming in the next few weeks.
Well, it would be more fun to do DIY projects again. And will get back the seasonal projects and posts. Also, my first giveaway is coming soon. Make sure to subscribe to my email list when I announce it. It will be from my email list. I’m so excited about doing it for the first time.
I planned to do Blogmas this year but I don’t think it’s possible this year. I’m going to get everything ready beforehand. I’ll make sure that I plan my content a couple of months ago. This way, I will be able to do it and don’t miss a day. Also, will be less work and worry.
I didn’t do Blogmas last year, but I’m looking forward to getting ready for everything this year. I will do as many things as possible. It will be more fun trying all the things I wanted to try but couldn’t have the chance.
Last year, things were really the best and so much that I needed to do but couldn’t. Things weren’t organized and I will not do the same mistake in 2022.

It’s fun to craft and I can’t wait to get back to it and make more projects. What I’m going to share with you use paper and/or cardboard. But also you would need to buy the pencils and colors, ruler.

I mention the tools on each tutorial, but here is also the list of the tools that I used on these ideas. Well, to be honest, all my projects require these tools. And the two materials I focus on are cardboard and paper. That’s what you will see on this list of DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas.
There are more ideas if you want to craft more than these. But these would be perfect for Christmas. Something you can make and gift a friend or family member. You can add more to it if you want that’s what I love about crafting at home.
Anyone, let’s get started and see what kind of awesome DIY crafts you can gift for this Christmas. Make sure to share your thoughts on these ideas.
I would like to start with one of my recent cool DIY phone stands. I have a few more DIY phone stands that I made before. However, this is different from what I made. And that you can charge while putting your phone on it. Well, that’s not one of the reasons why I chose it to be on the list of the DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas. This is custom made at home and I’m sure someone would love to get one like this for Christmas.
It might look simple, but it’s very useful and something that we can craft in a couple of hours. If you have crafted something before, it would be easy for you. Because it doesn’t look so complicated but when gluing and cutting. We need to have more experience. This applies to all on the list of the DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas.
I put this one first before it has cool colors and matches Christmas vibes. So this is why I choose to start this list of DIY crafts ideas for Christmas. You can read more of this and how to do it through the link. There are full tutorials and step-by-step how to craft it.
The phone on the stand
I chose my iPhone to demonstrate how it would look when you put it on this cool stand. It can be for any phone and size as long as it’s not so big. Sizes like iPhone 13 would work perfectly on this. Tablets and iPads would be too big for this stand haha. Other than that, this would make a good Christmas gift idea. That’s why I put it on this of DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas.
The measures for this, you can change them as you want and based on the phone you have. But, once you make it bigger, the tutorial will be different and the items would be the same. Because you just need to change the places and measures. Whatever you do, it would be a good present and that’s why it’s on the list of DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas.
This DIY craft can be for any age from 13+ and you need to be careful with the kids. Just like any item, they would break this if you are not careful. So, if you want to make it last for a long time. Then, don’t be pay attention to it more.
Moving next to one of my favorite projects and one of the ideas for DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas. And something I have made before. This is an art frame and decoration for kids. Well, it can also be for adults. If you have pictures or art with the size of this frame, it would be perfect. You can put Christmas arts in this.
There was no reason behind this, and it was just something that popped into my mind. Something to put art on and put together a good presentation. It could be for kids’ rooms or anywhere in the house. Don’t throw it away if kids don’t like it anymore.
This is why I put it on the list of the DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas. It would be perfect to put the art as a decoration in the house. I was aiming for kids because with the little chairs; it looks good in the kids’ room. But it can be anywhere you want.
I also have a full tutorial and more pictures on how to make this. Sharing step by step how to make this DIY craft. It was so much fun making this DIY project. As you can see, mostly cardboard and little paper to add for style. Anyone can make this at home and would be the perfect gift.
You can use more paper on the project to add more decoration. And try to glue it very well because you don’t want it to fall later. This way, you can also make sure these DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas last for a long time
Most of it is cardboard. So, you would need to make sure that the cardboard is new and not damaged. Because you would end up with a messy art frame. Therefore, make sure the cardboard is new and no damage to it.
I mentioned this in the tutorial, but the small chairs could break any strong hit. That means you would need to keep it in a safe place and don’t hit it. Away from kids’ reach because they would break it fast if they play with it. And it means decoration and playground haha.
Something you also need to know about this is that you need to be careful and don’t put it where kids can reach it. This would get destroyed quickly, just like any other decoration in the house, you know. So, I highly recommend putting far from kids’ reach. And to make it a Christmasy gift, you can add more Christmas decorations on the side and more colors if you want.
You can gift anything you want for Christmas. However, those who receive these gifts will remember them and the receiver will love them as well. Another idea on the list of DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas, you can craft this awesome DIY portable bookshelf.
It’s also one of the best crafts that I made. The person who will get this will love it because it serves really well and, just like any bookshelf, this will hold tons of books and notebooks. You can take it anywhere you want, but you should also be careful with it.
I fully made this DIY portable bookshelf out of cardboard and paper. You can read more about it because, in the tutorial, I also mentioned important tips that will help you to make it last for a long time. Make sure to mention it to whoever will receive it as well.
Well, you might ask how the drawer works. Well, it moves smoothly and just works like any book drawer except made of paper and cardboard. It can hold a lot of books as well, but it also depends on how heavy the book would be. Some books would be so heavy and this might not be the perfect option.
You need to keep the books on the top shelf. This way, you can open and close the drawer easily. Because it gives some force to hold the entire portable bookshelf when trying to pull the drawer out. Since it’s cardboard, it helps to keep still haha.
The handle for the bookshelf would break if you pull it too hard or add force on the top of it. Because it’s glued and this means you need to be careful with it. Open it slowly and with care. Don’t forget to mention it to whoever gets this as a present haha. That’s something we want if we want to gift someone one of these DIY crafts gift ideas for Christmas.
Other than that, this would be the perfect Christmas gift and would be so helpful. If someone would gift me this, I would be so happy haha. But, I have already gifted myself before with this DIY project. The question is, do you think this is worth it to be gifted to any of your friends? Let me know in the comment.
