DIY Housewarming Gift Idea + Drink Dispenser

DIY Housewarming Gift Idea: Using a drink dispenser, filling it with all kinds of necessities that the new home owners may need at move in! Plus, they get to use the drink dispenser later!

I love it when I have two or more people celebrating the same thing.  Birthday’s, Accomplishments, Graduations, Moving in to a new home, or simply just give me reasons to thank them.  Why?  Because when I’m getting creative, I like to do it on a mass level.

Why not spread the love to more than just one person?

spread the love...

It makes it easier to shop for multiples than just one, because more than likely, when I’m creating a DIY project, all of the fixin’s come in multiples.

This week, I had TWO friends moving in to new homes!  My DIY Housewarming Gift was born…

DIY Housewarming Gift Idea:

I haven’t met a gal yet who doesn’t love a good ole drink dispenser.

They either want it, to store their tea in, or they want it for the parties they’re throwing at home.

I knew a drink dispenser was TOTALLY going to be the base of my DIY Housewarming Gift.

All of the goodies inside, were just the added cherry on top, while shopping.

I knew I wanted the contents of the gift to be things my friends would need when moving in to a new home.  You know, those things you don’t think about, until you need them?  There’s nothing more frustrating than gettin’ in a groove, unpacking, hanging things up, when you realize you’re out of something, and you have to stop what you’re doing, and run to the hardware store.

Well, if you’re anything like me, by the time you run to the store, and get back home…

Forgettaboutit.  I’m pooped.

Maybe that’s just me.

I love coming to my friends rescue.  I told you that when I showed you my DIY Sick Kit for friends.  There’s just something about helping others, that makes it easier to rest my head at night, right?!

By far, my favorite thing about this DIY housewarming gift idea, was that the drink dispenser did all of the decorating for me.  It’s pretty enough, that I simply just tied a ribbon around it.  BAM!

DIY Drink Dispenser Contents:

• Drink Dispenser (shocker, I know)

• Hand towel (white is always safe.  Tie a ribbon around it, to keep it small in the jar.)

• Surge Bar

• Furniture Pads {so they don’t scratch the floor}

• Gorilla Glue

• Furniture Dusting Wipes

• Batteries

• Furniture Touch-Up Crayons

• Monkey Hooks (Next to Command Strips, these are my favorite things to hang items with.)

• A book for the kiddos to read, while mom and dad unpack.

I just lucked out at the time the movie, “Home,” was popular! 😉

I just stuffed the drink dispenser full of the goodies, and tied a cute little ribbon around it with my homemade label.  You’ll be tickled to see how easy the label was to make below:

I just grabbed 3 paint swatches from the store.

I used one for the background, cut a corner off of another for the roof, and cut a square out of the last one for the walls of the house.  I used glue dots to adhere the house to the background paint sample, and wall-lah.  I had a “heart,” sticker from a previous project left over, and I attached that too, to had a little, “umph.”

Then wrote a little message to the new neighbors.

I used a hole punch to make two holes in each corner, and tied the ribbon through, and around the drink dispenser… and called it a day.

 We went around the following weekend, delivering the housewarming gifts, and my kids had a blast!  Making it a family event made it all worth it too.

Until next time,
