Christmas gifts four ways, using one $2 item from Kmart!
I have created four super easy DIY gifts that all cost under $2 each to make, and they have all been created using one item, this silicone Christmas ice-cube tray.
DIY Crayons –
I have seen DIY crayons a gazillion times on Pinterest and thought they would be perfect as little Christmas trees.
I removed the paper, broke up the crayons and placed one crayon per mould and baked them at 150c for ten minutes.
I let them cool slightly, placed them in the freezer until firm and then popped them out of the mould.
I have placed them inside a Kmart gift card tin and they make the cutest and most practical little gift.
I have made a batch of old fashioned toffees in the moulds and you can find my recipe here. So cheap and easy to make and they look great wrapped in cellophane and tied off with ribbon or twine.
I melted white chocolate using a double boiler (in the microwave is fine) and let the chocolate set in the mould. I then added them to a cello bag with a gift tag for a quick and pretty gift.
Christmas is often a very expensive time of year so I hope one, or even all of these budget friendly homemade gifts come in handy for you this festive season.
Happy moulding lol
