DIY Crafts that Grandparents’ will Love!
Grandkids Picture Sign
Make Grandma and grandpa something they can hang up year-round! Grandparents love pictures, so why not gather pictures of all the grandkids and make one big sign!
Ornaments are a great way to say I love you! Grandparents will love hanging these on their Christmas trees. They bring back memories and they can be shown off! You can even personalize the ornaments with hand or fingerprints. This is a memory grandma and grandpa will never forget.
Grandma loves to cook. What better way to spice up grandma’s kitchen than to make her Christmas dishtowels! They’re super easy to make, grab some plain or colored dish rags and paint them however you want! Grandma will love using these around the holidays.
Grandparents always have coasters out on their coffee tables. There are so many cool things you can do when decorating them too! Put pictures on them or simply just paint! There are endless options and these photo coasters can be displayed year-round!
The birthday board is a great tool for grandparents remembering all their grandkid’s birthdays! They will never miss a birthday again! List the months across the bottom of a board and hang the names going down each month. This is a great gift that will be used year-round!
Most of our grandparents wake up in the morning with a cup of coffee, right? Then they will love their very own mug personalized by you! Grandparents love handmade gifts from their grandchildren. Decorate the mugs with handprints and paint1
A handprint apron will always be used by grandma or grandpa while cooking. Aprons with grandchildren’s names or handprints on them are a great way to tell grandma and grandpa you’re thinking about them and you love their cooking!
Handmade Snow Globes
Snow globes can be a fun project! Use old mason jars and slide pictures in the middle along with glitter or sparkles on the bottom. When you close the top and shake it, it’ll look like it’s snowing in your picture!
Painted plates are great ideas! Let your kids paint on plates so their grandparents can keep them displayed or use them as serving dishes! Grandma and Grandpa love displaying their grandchildren’s artwork.
The holiday season can get cold. Make your grandparents something they can use all winter! Making grandma and grandpa blankets are perfect gifts that will keep them warm and happy! A simple knot blanket will make your grandparents’ Christmas!
