Handmade Holidays: For the Romantic

Welcome to another edition of Handmade Holidays! This set is dedicated to the romantic, the dreamer who lives among the clouds. Soft textures, feminine details, gauzy lace- all of these things are sure to delight the romantic!

1. Ballerina Pink Bow Belt– Umm, how adorably perfect is this belt?! *swoon*
2. Paris Necklace Eiffel Tower Charm– I would say that ‘romantic’ accurately describes Paris, the city of love!
3. Silk Scarf in Silver Grey– This silky scarf has such a lovely pattern.
4. The Collar Necklace– A delightful twist on the peter pan collar and this way you can add a collar to any outfit!
5. Quaint Romantic Floral Garden Dress– The sweetest floral print- I wish I had a garden party to wear this to.
6. Hunter Green Necklace White Vintage Lace– This necklace has a lovely vintage feel with the pretty lace set against a deep green background.
7. Burgundy Felt Flower Dahlia Brooch– This brooch is an easy way to give that special festive touch!
8. Dreamy Early Grey Chiffon Dress– A perfectly delicate and floaty chiffon dress.

I hope your enjoying these picks and that they’re getting your wheels turning for potential gifts this season! If you have any particular theme you like me to tackle for Handmade Holidays, just let me know in the comments below! :)

  14. This is my kind of gift guide! Hopeless romantic? Yep … that is me. How amazing is that collar necklace. I really want to try to make one … really, REALLY want to make one. Must get on that :)

    ps. Just saw the red bow brooch/pin in your shop … is that a new item?!?!? I love it! How can you be selling it for only $2, that is crazy girl!!!! Your talent and skills are worth more than that :)
