Gift Ideas for Teenagers/Best Friends Leave a comment

DIY gifts

This DIY idea is for all sorts of people of every age group. We have tried to make these all gifts that we all personally would like to receive, so they’re kind of more

Makeup brush holder

To make this makeup brush roll, you will just need a placemat, and a hot glue gun. You can get them at thrift stores. So you just want to fold the bottom up, and just make sure of course that it will fit whatever brushes or whatever you would like to put inside it. And then just glue little stripes of hot glue down. Ten make little pockets for the brushes. And of course do that the whole way along.

Next attach some ribbon so that it could be tied closed. You may have in your collection of stuff and it happened to match. So cut out two pieces of ribbon, and attach them together, and then glue them onto one end.

And now as you can just put in your brushes. And if you want, you can make some of the pockets bigger than others to fit larger or smaller brushes. It’s really up to you. And then once they’re all in there, you just roll it up, and tie it with the ribbon.

And this isn’t just for makeup brushes; you can also use it to hold paint brushes, or pencils, or whatever the interest is of the person you are giving it to.

Flower crown

Next up is a flower crown. So to make this you will just need a bunch of fake flowers. You can get from a dollar store and they’re really, really cheap. Optionally, you can also have some wire to base it around, but really you don’t have to do this.

Next you just want to intertwine the wires of the flowers and make the crown. Make sure that you use a range of large and small flowers, that way it will look the most balanced. Then make half a crown for this one. If you do this, you can use some sort of tape to go over the edges, and make it feel a little bit more professional, and so you don’t have any wires poking out of hurting anyone.

You could also do this with ribbon. So for these personalized tea bags, you’re going to need some coffee filter paper. You can buy this at any supermarket

Next cut out some little rectangle shapes, a bit bigger than you want your tea bags to be. So cut out as many as you want to make. You can try to make some heart shaped ones. Then just sew around three of the sides, leaving one open. You can hand-sew this as well, but don’t glue it.

You can either use a loose leaf blend or you could mix together some of your own. So put a spoonful inside the tea bag- don’t overfill it because we still need to close it. And half of them were a mix of these two berry flavored teas from Twinings, that may go really well together.

And once you have made as many as you want, cut up some lengths of string, then fold in the corners of the tea bag, fold the top over (just like this), put your string in place, and pop a staple through it. And just to be safe, and tie a knot with the string as well.

So again, just fold in the corners and fold the top down. And then you can cut out some little tags (if you want) to attach to the other end. You can write literally whatever you want on these tags. And to package them, you can put them in a little box or something.

I just decided to out them in this little jar.


Another great idea you can make as a gift for your best friend is a tshirt. So I always see these really great sassy shirts on tumblr, with lots of different sassy quotes. We have decided to make was inspired by which is also quite popular on tumblr.

So all you need to do to make a really simple tshirt- I’m sure you’ve seen this a thousand times before- but you can get these printer transfer sheets, and you just need to print out an image on this paper, according to the instructions on the packet (because it does vary between them).

Then place it face down, iron it onto your tshirt, and then carefully peel off the backing and you have a tshirt! So this is just an idea to give you guys some inspiration: you can just make some best friend bracelets with beads and cord that you can just buy at a dollar store or a craft store.

Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful day.
