Top 5 easy DIY Christmas gifts your family actually wants to get

Looking for something easy, affordable and beautiful to make for the loved ones on your list, but don’t know where to start? It doesn’t matter if you’re not able to sew, knit, or paint, has the best instructional videos to make any awesome project seem easy for any skill level – even newbies.

I have recently started using to help with my continuing education course, since it has some drawing instructional videos and I’m required to fill a sketch book with drawings, ideas and notes. I wasn’t comfortable drawing much of anything before taking the course, and have already witnessed improvement in my drawing skills from the Creative Bug courses alone.


The instructional videos are a lot of fun and are at a good pace. They have a variety of topics, themes and skill levels available for you to choose from, and so many projects that it was really hard to narrow it down to just 5 crafts. But I did it, and am excited to share with you my top 5 easy DIY Christmas gifts the people on your list actually want to receive.

1. Painted wooden centrepieces


2. Loom-knit hat

Making presents for loved ones makes Christmas much more personalized and meaningful. Even if you’ve never made a single thing in your life, makes it easy to understand and do it on your own.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
