Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas – Unique Gifts You Can Craft

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

It’s hard to believe that Saturday is the first day of October. Not only that but it’s bringing some much cooler temps along with it! We’re dropping from the high 70s into the low 50s for a Saturday high. So of course it has me dying to pull out my fall wardrobe and get a head start on shopping for the holidays. If you’re the crafty sort like me, I’m sure you’ve already started thinking – or maybe even making – things for your fellow friends and family for gifts and stocking stuffers. Should you still be hunting for ideas for unique stocking stuffers you can craft, here are two of my latest favorites I’ve run across.
Moustache Keychain Tutorial from Katrinshine
Mustaches have been a huge trend for several long years now and I’m not sure it’s a trend that plans to die anytime soon. So perhaps we can bag the mustache trend as more of a tradition – a sort of theme for the hipster that refuses to ever die. If you’re a die hard mustache fan, or know someone else who is, this Mustache Keychain is the perfect gift for his or her Christmas stocking! The project is inexpensive and rather simple if you can manage a basic machine stitch and the step by step tutorial can be found over at Katrinshine Blog.
How to Make a Wallet Out of an Old Cowboy Boot from Poppytalk
Men like to hold on to things they love. Underwear. T-shirts. Regardless of how raggedy it becomes or how many holes it touts, it’s still perfect to them. That’s why it’s up to us women to save them. Don’t let your man be like my man and hang on to his sad, dying Family Guy Velcro wallet with the huge hole in the bottom any longer. Craft him a new one for his Christmas stocking and force him to retire the old wallet once he realizes the pure genius of the new one you’ve just gifted him with. This gorgeous leather wallet (pictured above) is constructed from an old, recycled cowboy boot. (Think thrift store and your crafty nature will reward your own wallet and not just your man.) This handmade cowboy boot wallet tutorial created by Jepson LeatherGoods can be found over at Poppytalk Blog.
