Hi friends! It’s Shea, back with some DIY goodness for your Black Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This year I had the excuse of “eating for two” so I had no shame going back for seconds (and maybe thirds).
If you know anything about me, you know that I’m a DIY nut… that’s how I found the Something Turquoise blog while planning my own wedding! Fast forward several years and here I am, part of the ST team! One of my favorite parts of the job is getting to assist Jen with her DIYs. She’s the reason I became the Cricut fanatic that I am. It has become, hands down, my absolute favorite crafting tool. I have even convinced several friends to get a Cricut of their own! That being said, now that Thanksgiving is behind us, we can officially dive into all things Christmas!
I’m assuming if you’re here, you are a DIYer, which means you probably are planning some DIY gifts this holiday season. If you have a Cricut machine you’re in luck (and if you don’t, put that baby on your Christmas list ASAP!) because today I’m going to be sharing all of the best blank items to personalize with your Cricut for all your friends and family! There really is nothing like a personalized gift, am I right? So, let’s dive right in!
These blank hats are just screaming for some vinyl and how cool that there is a hole for your pony tail?! Perfect for your sporty friend. Check out these adorable “Bride Tribe” hats that we created with them. So cute right?
Do you have a beer lover in your life? Or maybe someone who drinks canned wine or even soda. These are a fun way to help someone keep their drink cold, and the best part, you can customize them any way you’d like! Add a monogram, or a favorite quote or team. We used them as Bridal Party koozies.
What I love about this one is it’s totally outside of the box. You can create a custom ice bucket for a newly engaged couple, with a bottle of champagne, or you could create one for a newly married couple with their new last name and a bottle of wine. It’s a totally custom way to help someone keep their bottle cold, like we did here.
I think we’ve all got a wino (or two) in our lives that would love one of these customized wine tumblers like the ones we did here.
I think most of us are trying to be more mindful of our waste. These cups are great for your coffee loving friend that’s trying to be a little more green. Check out how we personalized them here.
Another way I think we’re all trying to go a little greener is by using reusable tote bags instead of plastic bags. This is another option where the possibilities really are endless. We created some Bachelorette Party Swag using them.
This is another outside of the box idea you may not have thought of. It would be perfect for a newly married couple, or a first time homeowner! See how we personalized ours here.
You really can’t go wrong with a tank. Whether you’re making something for a bride to be, a new mom or maybe even your bestie using her favorite song lyrics, a custom tank is sure to be a hit. Check out the fun Bachelorette ones we created using a shop file here.
Have I gotten you inspired to create some custom gifts this holiday season? Receiving gifts is definitely one of my love languages and so giving gifts is also one of my favorite ways to show my love. A personalized gift goes that extra little step to show someone you really care. I hope you’re able to use some of these great blank items to create some personalized gifts of your own. And don’t forget to check out our shop for some awesome cut files! Happy Crafting!
