The Easiest Christmas Gift DIY


I feel like it’s lying to consider these adorable Christmas cups a DIY project because really all you have to do is assemble things, but that’s what makes these little cuties the perfect gift project for anyone, even those who continually have Pinterest fails with everything they touch.

I love how these little cups turned out. I made them to have a couple around our house for guests who drop by during the Christmas season and also for the office ladies in our neighborhood. I will probably fill them with those via instant drink packages from Starbucks, but I think that even empty, anyone would be thrilled to receive one.


So here is what you need:

Small mason jars: These are cheapest if you buy them in a package of 12. right now Michaels has a 50% off one item coupon that you could use for the jars. If you only want to make a handful of these, they are $1.99 each at Michaels or $1.53 if you buy 4 or more. The mason jars with handles would be really cute for this project, but they are more expensive ($2.99 each) so I just went with what was cheapest.

Lids and Straws: Michaels made this part soooooo easy. They sell right beside their mason jars packages of lids and straws. The lids already have a hole in them and they have a silicon stopper to keep the straw in place. They come in sets of two red lids and two red straws or two green lids and two green straws for $3.99 a package. I wanted to mix it up and put red straws with green lids and green straws with red lids so I bought both colors.

Remember to get the Michaels and Joanns apps on your phone for coupons. These can save you so much money. They typically have a 40-50% off one item coupon and sometimes a 20% off of your total purchase. On Black Friday, they are doing 25% off of your total, so that would be a great day for you to buy your supplies.

Gift Tags: I found mine at TJMaxx for $4.99 for 24, but Michaels sells similar tags. I already had mine, so that is what I used.

Each cup will cost you around $2.75-3.50 depending on how savvy you are with your couponing.

Have fun, act surprised if I gift you one of these cups, and Merry Christmas!
