5 WINTER CRAFTS FOR DIY ENTHUSIASTS TO DO WITH THEIR VINAS THIS MONTH

Yes, it's time to whip out that artsy soul!

It’s that time of the year where the cold weather rolls around and we can’t be outside as much. We wonder what kind of fun things to do with our best vinas that don’t require us to actually go through all the fuss and put on our boots and puffer jackets. So I’ve gathered for you, five of the cutest, easiest, AND holiday-themed DIYs perfect for this season. Most of the materials can also be found at your local dollar store, so super doable as well! Whip out that artsy soul of yours and make some great decors and gifts!

HO-HO-HO WREATH

 

Materials Needed:

  • Floral wreath ring
  • White tulle
  • Santa hat
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Scissors

What to do:

  • Cut the tulle into 4-5 in pieces.
  • Tie each piece of tulle to the ring and drop a little bit of glue on top of the knot to make sure it’s stable. Continue doing this until you reach about halfway on the ring.
  • Take the Santa hat and place it on top of the ring and hot-glue the ends to the ring.
  • If you want to hang it on your door, I recommend also getting a wreath holder and placing it on the door when you decorate.

YARN CHRISTMAS TREE

Materials Needed:

  • Yarn of any color of your choice
  • Glue
  • Styrofoam cone
  • Assorted snowflakes or buttons (optional)

What to do:

  • Take your yarn and start wrapping it around the cone as much as you want. Make sure the beginning is snug to hold its place.
  • Take the glue and squeeze it onto the yarn. You can take a paintbrush or even your finger and spread the glue all over.
  • Let the glue dry. I recommend at least an hour or two just to be safe.
  • You can also add on your little tidbits to make it more special or can leave it plain if that’s the look you want.
  • Once completely dry, carefully take out the cone from the inside of the yarn and voila!

PERSONALIZED WINE GLASS

 

 

Materials Needed:

  • Wine glass
  • Paint markers (gold or silver)
  • Printed paper with whatever word you want to be written on it (optional)
  • Masking tape (optional)

What to do:

  • If you decide to use the printed paper, tape that toward the top end of the wine glass with the masking tape.
  • Take your paint marker and slowly start to write on the glass over the place that you placed the paper. Or if you decided to freehand it, then do the same thing. Let the first layer dry for a minute or two before you go over it again.
  • Once completely dry you can take out the paper with the masking tape.
  • Open a bottle of wine with your favorite vinas and enjoy your new glass!
  • Reminder: This glass should only be hand washed very gently. Hard scrubbing on the glass can chip the paint.

PRINGLES COOKIE CAN

Materials Needed:

  • Empty Pringles can
  • Wrapping paper or any type of paper you like to use
  • Ribbons, charms, bows (optional)
  • Hot glue gun

What to do:

  • Clean the empty Pringles can thoroughly.
  • Cut the paper of choice to the size of the can.
  • Take your hot glue gun and make a line going from top to bottom
  • Place the end of the paper over that line of glue.
  • Continue the same method around the can every half inch or so until complete.
  • Decorate the can to your liking with ribbons or charms.
  • Put the top back on!

JAR MAKEUP BRUSH HOLDER

Materials Needed:

  • Empty jar
  • Gems or colorful rocks
  • Makeup brushes
  • Good gone or acetone
  • Cotton balls

What to do:

  • Grab an old jar and make sure it is clean of the previous contents.
  • Take the good gone or your acetone and put some of it on the label of the jar while scrubbing it off with the cotton balls until clean.
  • Rinse the jar again to get a good cleaning.
  • Dry it off very well or let it air dry.
  • Once dry, grab your gems or colorful rocks and pour them into the jar
  • Take your makeup brushes and put them into the jar; place on your armoire and be dazzled by your crafty-ness.
