Homemade Gift : Housewarming

Last week I showed you the Upcycled Decorative Bowl that I made and told you it would soon contain a gift.  Well, my very favorite neighbors are moving away.  I'm so sad!!  But I'm also so happy for them.  They found a great deal on a house, still in the neighborhood, and it fits their needs much better.  To congratulate my favorite neighbors I thought I'd put together a small housewarming gift.  And me being me, I wanted to handmake at least part of it.  I thought about crocheting a blanket but I just didn't have time.  So I bought a few things and made a few things. Check it out.


1. I removed the labels off of the candle and blanket.  I wrapped the blanket in the pictured ribbon.

 2. Next I added a little detail to the candle with sticky floral Washi tape and I found some silver letters and spelled out their last name.


3. Next I painted a cute and easy little home sweet home canvas.


 4. The last thing I did is draw "Best Neighbor Ever" Inside a wreath of leaves on a mug with a ceramic marker.  These markers are awesome.  You let your cup sit for 8 hours and then bake the mug. After it cooled I filled it with chocolate.


5. Then I put it all in my decorative paper bowl!

 Well what do you think?  Would you like to receive a housewarming gift like this?  Well you can!  Email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
