DIY Hostess Gifts

DIY hostess gifts ideas from paint-dipped spoons to a hanging monogram show your favorite entertainer how much you appreciate them!

Spoon Bouquet: We dipped a set of plain wooden spoons in three different cans of paint. Tied together by a tea towel, this is a gift she’ll use again and again.

Olive Bag: Pick up fancy olives and package them in a waxed canvas bag available from Italic Home via Etsy. Our talented calligrapher, Sara Penick, wrote “olives” on this bag, but you could just as easily hand stamp the word for a gift-worthy appetizer.

Door Monogram: Wrap yarn around a large craft store letter and embellish with felt flowers for a monogram fit for the front door.
