Craft Roundup: Homemade Gifts for the Graduate

Whether they're wrapping up middle school or heading to college, kids are celebrating the end of the year. Give them one of these DIY creations as a present!

School's out for summer! I know more than a few young crafters who are excited for long summer days spending time with friends and enjoying the warm weather. As class has wrapped for most schools around metro Detroit and southeast Michigan, there's still time to surprise your child or a family friend with a handmade gift congratulating them on another year of making the grade. No matter their age, we've got a few gift ideas that will cover them all.

 

'Lips' Lip Gloss Holder

For the young lady who simply cannot live without her favorite lip gloss, create this fun (and very glitzy) lip gloss holder from the Henry Happened blog. The key ring is a great addition for hanging off of bags and backpacks.

 

Geometric Stamp Set

Summer rainy days will be set thanks to this fun and simple stamp set from Mermag. Encourage the recipients to build upon their designs, as Mermag shows you in her photo how-to.

 

Message in a Bottle

Tell your scholar just how proud you are of her for completing a big year at school with this alphabet block set from ClubChicaCircle.com. It reminds us of our own DIY color blocks!

 

DIY Berry Boxes

For the graduate of any age, surprise him with his favorite homemade snack presented in these charming paper berry boxes from Fellow Fellow. Wrap the goodies in a piece of glassine or wax paper so that any oils that might be there don't stain the carton.
