1. Felt Heart Ribbon Bag

For this project, you’re going to need two felt hearts and some ribbon.

Start by placing the felt hearts on top of each other. Now you could hot glue this, but I'm going to use some ribbon instead. I started by measuring the ribbon and then cut it, and then I wove it in between all of the little hearts, all the way around on one side and then the other.

Clean the surface of the coffee cup. Place the stencil onto the cup and use stencil tape to add extra room. Dip your stencil brush into the multi-surface paint and offload most of it. Pounce the paint onto the stencil until it's fully covered. Let the paint dry completely before removing the stencil.

7. Customized Coffee Mug

For this project, take a white mug and start by cleaning it with a rubbing alcohol prep pad.

  1. Next, place an adhesive stencil on top. I added some additional stencil tape around this one to protect the edges so I wouldn’t get paint on them.
  2. I dipped my stencil brush into the paint, I offloaded as much as I could, and then I tapped that paint onto the stencil.
  3. Once the stencil was coated, I removed the stencil tape and carefully peeled off the stencil while it was still wet.
  4. Let it dry completely before moving on.
  5. Add some coffee to it, and your little gift is complete.

If you’re not comfortable with paint, you can easily add one of their decals from the store. You can find the full tutorial at DIY Gifts for Men: Easy and Creative Ideas

Don’t want to use paint or decals? Here’s a quick tip.

  • Add some window clings to your mug and then you can remove them at the end of the season.
  • And another tip, add window clings to a candle or even a candle holder. Those candle holders can also hold candy and treats as well.

I'm going to move that aside and now's time to put my s'more together simply putting the graham cracker on and pulling off the marshmallow.

15. Dollar Store Indoor Fire Bowl and S’mores Kit

For this project, you’re going to need some dollar store rocks, a sternocan, a basket of your choice, and then a glass container of your choice as well.

  1. You’re going to place a large sum of the rocks at the bottom of the wired basket.
  2. Then once you get enough of those in, you’re going to place the glass container in the top and at the center of those rocks and in the basket.
  3. Then I’m going to continue taking the rocks and placing them around the glass container until I reach the top of the glass container. Now you can use any rocks you want from the dollar store.
  4. Once that is complete I’m going to place a sternocan in the center and then I’m going to remove the lid.
  5. I’ll take a clicky lighter and light the sternocan so that a flame is present. Now it puts off a flame, but you can’t easily see it unless it’s dark. This is a great emergency heat source. It can be used inside or out.
  6. Now for some added fun, I’m grabbing some graham crackers and splitting them in half. I’m also going to add a piece of chocolate to one of them. And then I’m going to set this aside. I’m going to add a wooden skewer to a marshmallow. Now you could use the metal skewers from the dollar store. Both come from the dollar store and I’m going to go ahead and toast my marshmallow. Now you can look for sternocans that are made for s’mores and for food.
  7. Once my marshmallow is toasted, all I have to do is place the lid right back on top of the sternocan and it puts the flame out.
  8. Simply putting the graham cracker on and pulling off the marshmallow.
