Instead of waiting in lines and being stuck in traffic why don't you make a cup of Joe, turn on Frankie Valli Radio and get to craftin'! Here are some easy DIY gift ideas. PicMonkey CollageOn the top Left we have a memory wire bangle using a JJB Petite Strand and Design Element mixed bead pack. The memory wire is super tough to cut, make sure you have a wire cutter on hand! IMAG40902 For the Bohemian Nights Bangle you will need... -Memory Wire -Design Element in VENUS (or your choice of color palette) -Petite Strand #24 IMAG40912 Next we have the Hemp Knotted Bracelet.

Here we used green colored hemp purchased at a local craft store, an Inspiration Pack in Natural Beauty and a toggle clasp for a touch of class. IMAG40972 For the Hemp Knotted Bracelet you will need... -Hemp (or your choice of cord such as leather) -Inspiration Pack in NATURAL BEAUTY IMAG40992 Last but not least we recreated an old favorite in new colours.
