During this festive month, are you in a pinch for gifts for all those parties and get-togethers? Fortunately, we have some DIY ideas that will express “I care” and also announce “I am really, really craftsy!” So let’s get started.
Bedazzled hand sanitizer bottle
Any party host will appreciate this glamorous and practical gift! Truly, nothing ruins a celebration like the spread of an infectious disease (trust me, I know.) Watch the short video to see how easy this gift is to make!
Are you familiar with amigurumi (little crocheted critters)? If your answer is yes, you probably have the skills to make these artisan microbes, perfect gifts for any occasion. If you are as fast at crochet as our colleague Kristen Wilson-Weiberg (who made these adorable little germs), you can whip out The Black Death during the span of a webinar.
For scintillating dinner party conversation, make small talk about the germs and the microbes shown. You’ll be sure to be invited back next year!
With syphilis and gonorrhea cases on the rise, these earrings can be both stylish and functional on a date night. And they couldn’t be simpler to make! Just put a pin prick in the packaging (make sure to put it in the outer edge so you don’t break the seal) and attach an earring wire using needle nose pliers.
Lit Bike Helmet
For the dedicated cyclist in your life, simply weave a string of battery-powered LED lights through a bike helmet and voila! Increased visibility and the ultimate street sartorial statement all in one!
Look for more editions of the Public Health Crafter’s Corner in 2020. It’s our gift to you! From everyone at Public Health, we wish you peace and joy in the New Year!
