DIY Gift Giving Ideas Holiday DIY's L*SPACE Holiday DIY

Need a quick gift in a pinch? We’ve got you covered with this perfectly sweet DIY. Equal parts creamy and delicious, you can whip up a batch to gift to all your gal pals or your co-workers. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love chocolate?


-1/2 cup dry milk

-1/2 cup cocoa

-1/2 cup sugar

-1/3 cup chocolate chips

-handful of mini marshmallows

- 1 quart glass jar

Layer ingredients into the jar beginning with the dry milk. Give it a jiggle so that it lays flat. Once you have created your first layer, you can then begin adding the other layers including the coco, sugar, chocolate chips and marshmallows. Hint: to keep the ingredients looking layered and pretty we suggest using a funnel to add a new layer. Add as many marshmallows as needed to fill up the rest of the jar.

Once you’re ready to gift (or enjoy), mix the contents of the jar together and add ¼ cup of the mix to a cup of hot water.

And don't forget the most important part...add a splash of rum or Baileys to spice it up (or help you tolerate your in-laws)! Shh...we won't tell! 

Sip, snuggle & enjoy!

Start by measuring out all of your ingredients & combine into mixing bowl. Add in crushed rose petals (using a mortar & pestle or crush by hand) & continue mixing.

DIY Festival Necklace


Putting the finishing touches on your outfits for weekend 1 of Coachella? Don’t forget about the accessories (& we’re not just talking about flower crowns)!

Here’s a quick and easy DIY you and your festival squad can make. All you need is a quick trip to your local craft store and a little creativity to make this super easy no-sew festival-inspired necklace!


Here's what you need:

-Leather cord

-Cut Cowry Shells (If you can't find em' at the beach, you can purchase them here)

-Assorted Silver Conchos (Find them at your local craft store or purchase them here)


-Beads (We recommend a thick bead with ¼’’ inch hole)

-Measuring Tape  

Step 1. Grab your leather cord, measure out 2 feet & cut.  

Step 2. Fold your leather cord in half & then thread one end of the leather through the concho so that the cord is running vertically though one end. Repeat on the other side so that the leather cord is threaded vertically through both ends of the concho. 


Step 3. Add your stabilizing bead to both ends of the leather & pull through. 

Step 4. After stringing through your stabilizer/decorative beads, add your cut cowry shells to both ends of the leather. Knot & tie the shell (Expert tip: After knotting the shell, leave ¼ inch of leather sticking out. String excess leather through bead & cut for seamless finish). 


Step 5. Adjust the concho to where you would like it to lay on our neck (we suggest adjusting the concho low) & then pulling it up once you decide how many times you want to loop.  

Step 6. Make one for your bestie (chances are you'll have extra leather chord, bead + shells why not make one for your BFF or your whole festival squad?!)
