Handmade Summer Birthday Presents

Handmade gifts are always more special than something store-bought. It shows that real effort, time and love when into the process. Here are a few of our favorite summer projects that would make the perfect gift for your BFF. Make her a statement accessory like personalized sunnies, you can get creative with her favorite décor (pearls, gems and stones). Another statement piece would be our beach-inspired clutch purse, it's great for a night out and you can insert any photo you want. If she's the bohemian, organic, type-girl, she'll love the DIY Jewelry Branch. It's virtually free to make, a great way to showcase her jewelry and organize it! Last but not least, seashell candles. Bring the beach to her (or him!) by collecting a few seashells then making them into a great room addition, candles.
