Gifts for the New Year

How to make a gift for mom for the New Year with your own hands?

A gift for mom for the New Year should express the atten­tion and love of the per­son who gives it. If mon­ey for some­thing expen­sive is not avail­able due to age or cir­cum­stances, it is quite rea­son­able to do some­thing with your own hands to express your feel­ings. The range of New Year’s presents is very exten­sive — from dec­o­ra­tions to good­ies, so a child of any age will be able to choose the best option.

Paper Present Ideas

Paper crafts do not dif­fer in dura­bil­i­ty and strength, there­fore it is rec­om­mend­ed to give them only as a decor or as an item that will not be active­ly used. As an option, a use­ful gift is a stand for sta­tionery. For its man­u­fac­ture, mate­ri­als such as:

  • thick card­board;
  • thin design paper or decoupage nap­kins;
  • scis­sors;
  • foam sponge;
  • sil­i­cone glue.

Impor­tant! Hav­ing found a craft scheme on the Inter­net, it is more con­ve­nient to print it on two sheets of card­board.

The man­u­fac­tur­ing process of the stand is as fol­lows:

  1. you need to cut 12 iden­ti­cal pen­tagons;
  2. glu­ing the fig­ures togeth­er, it is nec­es­sary to build a volu­mi­nous and even wor­weiece;
  3. hav­ing col­lect­ed the first row, you will have to let it dry, and then dock it with the sec­ond row;
  4. using the remain­ing blank of beau­ti­ful paper, the required amount of coat­ing is cut out, which is then glued to the base;
  5. as soon as every­thing dries, the gift can be giv­en to the moth­er.

Anoth­er good paper gift is pic­ture frame. In addi­tion to the card­board base in the form of the frame itself, the fol­low­ing mate­ri­als and tools will have to be pre­pared:

  • thin design paper;
  • trans­par­ent glue;
  • tas­sel;
  • scis­sors.

Impor­tant! Of course, it is bet­ter to imme­di­ate­ly print a good fam­i­ly pho­to.

The man­u­fac­tur­ing process is as fol­lows:

  1. thin sheets are cut into small tri­an­gles, after which they are over­lapped and slight­ly ran­dom­ly glued onto a card­board base;
  2. after wait­ing for dry­ing, the sur­face can be fur­ther treat­ed with trans­par­ent nail pol­ish;
  3. as an addi­tion­al decor, origa­mi fig­urines or a quilling flor, volu­mi­nous stick­ers or dec­o­ra­tive peb­bles will look good;
  4. before con­grat­u­la­tions, the pho­to­graph must take its place inside the frame.

In addi­tion, from high-qual­i­ty paper it will be pos­si­ble to cre­ate grace­ful gar­lands of var­i­ous shapes, volu­mi­nous lanterns, a cor­ru­gat­ed table Christ­mas tree or a set for table set­ting. A large volu­mi­nous star placed on the win­dow is pop­u­lar today — it looks very styl­ish and gives the room a fes­tive mood. The origa­mi tech­nique allows you to make var­i­ous fig­ures, from snow­men to hearts and stars.

Snowflakes made of unusu­al mate­ri­als are always appro­pri­ate for the New Year. Paper hous­es look cute, inside of which there are tablet can­dles or deli­cious lol­lipops.

We create souvenirs in the New Year theme

For the New Year, it is very nice to receive a beau­ti­ful hand­made Christ­mas tree toy as a gift. Such a sou­venir will not gath­er dust some­where on the shelf, but will imme­di­ate­ly begin to please the new own­er. The toy can be made in any tech­nique, but to make the present per­son­al, you should give pref­er­ence to a ball with a com­mem­o­ra­tive pho­to placed inside. To cre­ate it, it will be enough to pur­chase a trans­par­ent glass fig­urine and fix a retro card inside.

Dec­o­ra­tive New Year’s pil­lows that cre­ate cozi­ness and mood in the house also look very cool. First, the pil­low itself can be sewn from an old plaid or jumper, and then dec­o­rat­ed with a themed decor.

If cre­at­ing a pil­low looks like too much of a task, then it is rea­son­able to lim­it your­self to a soft toy in the form of a sym­bol of the com­ing year.

Jelry and cosmetics

A fash­ion­ista mom will most like­ly like it neck­lace or bracelet, assem­bled from mul­ti-col­ored beads. They can be glass, wood, met­al or bright plas­tic — depend­ing on the cho­sen style.

A leather bag or bacweack will be dec­o­rat­ed with a key­chain made of col­ored yarn with pom­poms. In addi­tion to the fact that the prod­uct in the cur­rent boho style will look very cre­ative, it will also cheer up the par­ent on a cloudy day. If a moth­er cares about the ecol­o­gy of the envi­ron­ment and does not leave the house with­out a spe­cial shop­ping bag for gro­ceries, then you can present to her a new bag made from an old t‑shirt.

From a dense pas­tel-col­ored rib­bon, you can make a del­i­cate bracelet, dec­o­rat­ed with unusu­al ele­ments, and from woven leather — some­thing more seri­ous and con­cise.

Women love to acquire var­i­ous cos­met­ic things, pam­per­ing not only their body, but also their soul. Giv­en that hand­made cos­met­ics have a more use­ful com­po­si­tion, mom will def­i­nite­ly be delight­ed with such a gift. For exam­ple, it’s pret­ty easy to cre­ate bath bombs, scent­ed soaps, lip balms, herbal facial cleansers, or sug­ar, almond and essen­tial oil scrubs.

In addi­tion to the jel­ry itself, it is worth think­ing about a spe­cial orga­niz­er for stor­ing them. As a rule, the choice of this item in the store is rather lim­it­ed, so it is much more con­ve­nient to use an indi­vid­ual design that accom­mo­dates all avail­able jel­ry of dif­fer­ent shapes and sizes. An unusu­al orga­niz­er can be made from an old book. The Inter­net con­tains enough instruc­tions on how to turn an already unnec­es­sary vol­ume into a clutch for stor­ing cos­met­ics.

The eas­i­est way is to make a post­card for the New Year for mom, espe­cial­ly if the age of her daugh­ter or son is still small. The exe­cu­tion method is log­i­cal­ly appro­pri­ate depend­ing on your own pref­er­ences and skills. New Year’s cards are dec­o­rat­ed using the decoupage tech­nique, com­ple­ment­ed with embroi­dery or appliqués, vol­u­met­ric ele­ments or retractable details. Of course, the gift should be filled with kind and sin­cere words, if desired, in verse.

A great solu­tion would be to give mom self-made cook­ies, pack­aged in a beau­ti­ful pack­age. - a neat glass jar or craft paper, dec­o­rat­ed with New Year’s decor from cin­na­mon sticks, dried oranges and fir branch­es.

Hand­made gifts intend­ed for inte­ri­or dec­o­ra­tion are per­ceived with great sym­pa­thy. If the daugh­ter is able to draw a beau­ti­ful image, then it is bet­ter for her to present a draw­ing as a gift, maybe even a moth­er’s por­trait. If the skills do not allow you to cre­ate a work of art with a pen­cil, then you can choose some­thing eas­i­er, for exam­ple, a lacon­ic tapes­try. To make the decor, you will need woolen threads, an old pic­ture frame, a ham­mer and nails — noth­ing com­pli­cat­ed at all. The knit­ted cov­er on the mug looks very nice.

If mom is an avid cook, then she will def­i­nite­ly come in handy styl­ish jars for cere­als and spices. Glass bases can be pur­chased at any hard­ware store, and then each can be dec­o­rat­ed with an unusu­al porce­lain label with an inscrip­tion hang­ing from a thick cord.

The inscrip­tions them­selves are more con­ve­nient to apply with a sharp stick, while the cold porce­lain has not yet lost its soft state.

Pur­chased sets will become the basis for an inter­est­ing present if you con­struct any New Year’s design from them. From ined­i­ble mate­ri­als, you will need a glue gun, pack­ing tape and a bow. In addi­tion, you can not do with­out sets, choco­late bars and caramel can­dies. The man­u­fac­tur­ing process includes the fol­low­ing steps:

  1. caramel is locat­ed so that the sledge run­ners are obtained;
  2. bars are glued on top of them, form­ing the base of the sleigh;
  3. glue is used in small quan­ti­ties so as not to melt the choco­late;
  4. by plac­ing oth­er small­er sets and a pyra­mid of sets in the next lay­er, it will be pos­si­ble to form a filled San­ta Claus sleigh;
  5. the whole struc­ture is tied with a wide rib­bon for pack­ag­ing and dec­o­rat­ed with a bow of the same col­or;
  6. the indi­vid­ual com­po­nents are fixed again using a glue gun.

A par­ent who often works or rests in head­phones will come in handy spe­cial hand­made hold­er. First you will have to pre­pare two clothes­pins, sil­i­cone glue and decoupage nap­kins. So, you should do the fol­low­ing:

  1. the side of one of the clothes­pins is lib­er­al­ly lubri­cat­ed with glue; before that, in case of exces­sive smooth­ness of the sur­face, it will be nec­es­sary to use fine abra­sive sand­pa­per;
  2. two clothes­pins are inter­con­nect­ed so that the “top” is joined to the “bot­tom”;
  3. when the struc­ture dries, it will be pos­si­ble to glue it on all sides with decoupage nap­kins, fol­low­ing the basic instruc­tions;
  4. when you don’t want to spend a lot of time on decoupage, it is rec­om­mend­ed to use dec­o­ra­tive tape.

Adults and tal­ent­ed chil­dren can make some­thing large and use­ful for house­hold use. Alter­na­tive­ly, this could be a board for cut­ting food, a shelf in the kitchen, a hang­er for jack­ets, a neat tray with legs or even a side table. The abil­i­ty to work with flors allows you to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful the­mat­ic com­po­si­tion, for exam­ple, a Christ­mas wreath or a bou­quet for the table.

An inter­est­ing solu­tion could be cre­ation of a New Year’s top­i­ary, a can­dle­stick dec­o­rat­ed with dried flors and oth­er nat­ur­al mate­ri­als, as ll as a dec­o­ra­tive Christ­mas tree. To make a New Year’s top­i­ary, you can not do with­out tin­sel, sets, sparkles, shreds, rib­bons and Christ­mas tree dec­o­ra­tions. It is worth tak­ing steps such as:

  1. the fin­ished tree is placed in a pot and is usu­al­ly placed on a stand;
  2. the cre­ation of a dec­o­ra­tive ele­ment begins with the choice of a base, which can be a met­al knit­ting nee­dle, a stick or a pen­cil;
  3. work will require mate­ri­als such as glue, paints, a pen­cil and crown com­po­nents — for exam­ple, foam, papi­er-mâché and threads;
  4. first, with the help of a bal­loon, the crown itself is cre­at­ed — the eas­i­est way is to inflate it, wrap it with a dense thread soaked in glue, and then, after wait­ing for it to dry, pierce it with a nee­dle;
  5. the stick, which acts as a trunk, is insert­ed into the pot, and a round crown is fixed on it;
  6. fur­ther, the tree is already dec­o­rat­ed with all pos­si­ble mate­ri­als.

Impor­tant! It prac­ti­cal­ly does not cost mon­ey, but a box or a bag filled with pleas­ant wish­es and sets brings a lot of pos­i­tive emo­tions.
