Do you feel like Valentine’s Day is really Singles Awareness Day? Well don’t despair because you’re not the only one! Instead of moping around and feeling like you should have an S.O., embrace the benefits of being alone by following the philosophy of Treat Yo Self. Here a few DIY gifts you can make just for yourself and not have to share them with anyone!
Crayon Color Block Candles
-Crayons (any colors you’d like)
Pour some wax into the Dixie cup and partially heat it up. Remove the label from the crayon, cut it up into little pieces then add it to the wax and melt. Once the wax and crayon are melted, stir them together so that they form one solid color. Place one wick in the votive then pour the melted crayon wax into the votive. Repeat this several times with various colors so that the candle is color blocked. Wait between wax pourings so that the previous layer can solidify.
-Magnetic parts holders
-Paint (any color you’d like)
Simply paint the magnetic parts holders and let dry. This will make them colorful and easy to spot when you want to just throw your bobby-pins or paper clips somewhere. You can also glue gun a strong magnet onto the back of the bowl. This way you can place it on your fridge and put miscellaneous metal objects around the kitchen in it.
Jewelry Block Holder
-Small block of wood
-Small gold metal rod
Stain the small block of wood then, once it’s dry, hammer in the sawtooth hanger into one side of the block. Use the wood glue to glue the metal rod parallel to the opposite side of the sawtooth hanger. If you cannot find a gold metal rod, buy some gold paint and paint it. Make sure you the block of wood is in the middle of the rod so that you can string jewelry on both sides of it. You can use this for bracelets, earrings, or rings.
How will you celebrate Singles Awareness Day?
