Crafting Christmas Gifts with Goodwill Finds

It's crunch time!  Time to decorate and start crafting gifts for all the special people in your life.  Read on the learn how to use inexpensive purchases at Goodwill San Antonio to make quick Christmas gifts and decor.


One of my favorite things to buy at Goodwill San Antonio is the miscellaneous bags of Christmas ornaments.  They are usually priced $1.99 and are packed with lots of holiday goodies.  I love that you can find these year round, too, and start planning early.  I paired the ornaments with some other items from Goodwill to make adorable gifts that are quick and easy to make.


Supplies:
Ornaments
Various containers
E-6000 glue
Various paints


To make the treat jars:
  • Glue an ornament to the lid of the container.  (How cute are these elves?)
  • Paint the elf and lid one color.  I also painted mine with glitter paint to get a holiday shimmer.
  • Embellish the jar or bottle with glass paint.
To make the votive holder:
  • Paint the ornament.  I used white paint and glitter paint.
  • Glue the ornament to the front of the container.
  • Add a candle.
To make the candy jar:



  • Glue the ornament to the top of the container.
  • Paint the jar and ornament one color.  I used a spray paint with a hammered finish.

There you have it:  three quick, inexpensive gift ideas!  You can fill these containers with homemade treats or candy.  It's easy to make several in no time.  Here are a few other gift ideas with Goodwill finds.  You can find the full tutorial here.
