Or How to Use Glass Goblets from the Dollar Store for Gifts.
(Eleven Gifts-a-Giving, continued from previous post. HERE)
While browsing in the Family Dollar Store I saw these awesome, wonderful goblet glasses. I thought, ‘what can I do with these?’. I know lots of the blogs make amazing crafts from things purchased from the Dollar Store so I wondered if I could make something from these totally cool goblets.
Okay, I came up with AT LEAST 3 ideas! Here they are:
1. The Reindeer Goblet
I had a bunch of stuff on the dining room table (my all around work table) like white glittery branches and some bows and these REINDEER that I bought at where? THE DOLLAR STORE!! Yay! You get TWO reindeer for $1. You can’t beat that.
So I started putting branches in the goblet and then I had a bright idea to add some light so I put a 20 light set into the bottom of the goblet. Ooooo I was getting somewhere, indeed. When I spotted the reindeer and put him on the top of the arrangement, I knew I was on the right track. (Is this post too wordy already?)
Here is the result.
I added two bows also.
Isn’t that gold reindeer cute???
I also added some little white plastic bead thingees in the bottom of the glass. I think this would be great covered with cellophane and tied with a ribbon.
2. Chocolate Spoon Goblet
I made some of these by twisting chenille stems around my finger and gluing them to a straw or wooden skewer.
and a GOBLET..
Some Styrofoam.. I only needed half of this piece of Styrofoam. You know how expensive Styrofoam is now? This round piece was $3.50! (didn’t that used to be industrial waste?)
And the piece de la resistance…a tiny bag of Lindor Chocolates that cost $1.
I taped this bag to a skewer so it would fit into the arrangement nicely.
See? It sits right up on top!
I added a bow onto a candy cane.
And here it is – all ready to give either as a hostess gift or any small, fun gift you want to give someone. After the candy is gone, they still have a pretty nice goblet.
3. Chocolate Candy (or any candy) Goblet
1. Buy candy
2. Put into goblet
3. Tie bow onto stem of goblet.
4. Wrap with wrapping paper or cellophane.
More Lindor chocolates (my family loves them and they were on sale also).
I put the pictures into Picassa and had a little bit of fun over there with these photos. It does make a difference to lighten them up and enrich the color of the photos somewhat. I put a “vignette” around some of them also. It gives the pictures a dreamy kind of look, doesn’t it?
Well, I hope you all got some great ideas for gifting from this post. Tomorrow the “Eleven Gifts-a-Giving” will continue with EASY FLEECE GIFTS TO MAKE.
