Redneck Champagne Glass Gift
Many people love gag gifts, and if you can create something that people would want to buy their best friend or sister as a gift, then you've got it made. Every day gifts that poke fun or amuse are exchanged throughout the world, so you just need to be in front of the right people at the right time. I already know of at least five people who would buy this redneck glass in a heartbeat.
Materials You Will Need
- Canning jar with lid
- Candlestick holder
- Strong glue
- Various decorations to tie around the neck such as bow ties, camouflage, or ribbon.
Steps for Making Your Redneck Champagne Glass Gift
Step 1 - Sand the bottom of the canning jar and the top of the candlestick holder to create smooth surfaces that will stick together easier.
Step 2 - Wash both the jar and candlestick holder off and let dry.
Step 3 - Flip the canning jar upside down. Put glue on the top of the candlestick holder and press on the bottom of the canning jar. Let dry for at least one day.
Step 4 - Decorate with bow tie, ribbon, or whatever else you can come up with that is worthy of a redneck champagne glass.
Rocks With Quotes
I love this one! Lots of people love unique rocks, and people love quotes! So if you can create a rock with quotes then there is a chance that you can easily sell it at a craft fair or online. However, if you can create a bundle of rocks with quotes then there is an even bigger chance.
Materials You Will Need
- Rocks with one flat side
- Permanent marker
- Acrylic spray paint (water-proof, clear)
Steps for Making Your Rocks With Quotes
Step 1 - Pick up a rock, turn the flattest side upwards, decide what you want to write on it, then write. (I know I'm being obvious here.) A good tip is to let the rock speak to you. If you feel that it gives you a sense of peace, then you may want to write 'peace' on it. Chances are if it sends you a message, then it may send other people the same message as well.
Step 2 - Continue process with at least four more rocks.
Step 3 - Spray your acrylic paint, from about 6 inches or more away, over the word side of the rocks. Let dry.
Step 4 - Turn rocks over and spray with acrylic paint. Let dry.
Step 5 - Repeat steps 3 and 4.
Step 6 - Sell as a package of five rocks.
