Happy Friday friends! Today I’m sharing a simple, inexpensive do it yourself housewarming gift that I made for a friend of mine who recently bought her own home. Buying your own home is such a huge accomplishment, especially when you are a single Mom like she is. I am so proud of her and in awe of her achievement that I wanted to get her something special and since she lives in the Midwest, it’s not like I can simply bring her over a plant.
I scoured Pinterest and came across this picture which was my inspiration.
I picked up this fantastic galvanized steel lantern from Target on clearance.
Added a few housekeeping essentials.
And one special item to remind her of her friends here and our beautiful city.
All said and done, the entire project cost less than $20. It’s not how much you spend that matters, but rather the thought and care that went into the gift. I hope she loves it!
