DIY Birthday Gift Ideas | JENerationDIY


Hey guys! It’s Jennifer, and today I’m gonna be showing you guys some DIY gift ideas. This can be for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, pretty much any type of holiday or event that you need to give gifts for, and I specifically named it “birthday gifts” because today, June 5th, is my birthday, and guess how old I’m turning. Just take a wild guess. I’m turning nineteen. Calm your camels, I know I look thirteen, but I’m not. So, there’s really nothing I can do about it. If you like this video, make sure to like it, not just emotionally, and subscribe if you… subscribe if you haven’t already, if you like my videos, because that would be an amazing birthday gift. Make sure to follow me on my social media. I love, love, LOVE interacting with you guys. And… yeah. Without further ado, Let’s get started! So, this first gift idea is a baseball hat. This gift is very customizable, because you can basically stitch on any words/phrase that the person you’re giving to uses a lot or loves. In this case, I am using “vibes” ’cause I like good vibes! What I’m doing first is writing out what I want my word to look like, and you can use a white pencil crayon for this or chalk, then I’m going to take my needle and thread and start stitching. So, what you’re gonna do is basically stitch around the white lettering that you did. So I was actually watching a video from The Sorry Girls and learned about this, so if it’s going down vertically, then you wanna do horizontal stitches; if it’s going across horizontally, then you wanna do vertical stitches. I would recommend putting on your favorite show, or movie, or something, because this does take a while. My favorite show right now is Famous In Love. I’ve been binge-watching it. It’s so good. And once you’re done embroidering your design, you just want to tie off the thread and cut off the excess. Also I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m really, really sick right now, that’s why my voice sounds gross. Oh, also, I wanna know, when is your birthday? Comment that down below! This next DIY is a DIY canvas and obviously, this is also very customizable. I just wrote “dream big” because this is kind of like a birthday gift to myself. It’s a reminder to not limit myself to what I think I can do. So, I just wrote that out with my pencil, and then I traced it out with my Sharpie, because I didn’t wanna use black paint ’cause Sharpies are just a lot easier. So, I drew that in cursive as nicely as I could. If you don’t trust your free handing, you could definitely trace this. Now, for the flower design, it’s actually really easy. You just wanna draw a dot in the middle and then paint random squiggly lines around it in different shades of pink, and trust me, this is really easy. It doesn’t need to be neat at all. And then, for these other flowers, I’m just making random little splotches and just do whatever your heart desires. Now, I’m taking some green paint and I’m painting on the stems with some leaves, and now, I’m using some black paint to fill in the middle of the flowers, and that is pretty much it. You can obviously tailor this to whoever you’re giving this to by writing whatever phrase that they like. Next up, we’re making this really, really easy choker necklace, and I am taking some white polymer clay. And I’m kind of shaping that into a moon. Then, I’m taking a push pin and making a hole at the top, so that I can hang it from my necklace. Then, I’m gonna put that in the oven to bake for fifteen minutes. This really depends on what your package says, I actually kind of burned mine, but I tried to save it by putting some iridescent nail polish on top. Now, I’m taking some wire. I got this wire from the dollar store, but you can definitely use wire from a spiral bound notebook, or anything you can find around the house, and I’m bending that into a circle And this is called a jump ring, and I’m putting that through the hole at the top of my moon and closing that up and taking some necklace string. Honestly, this is just some random cord that I found around my house, and I’m stringing that through, and that is pretty much it. I just tied this two times around my neck, and that’s what it looks like. And let me know down below which one was your favorite. So I hope you guys enjoyed this video, make sure to like it, and subscribe, and I will see you guys next time. Bye!
