If you haven't done your Christmas shopping yet, I'm sorry to break it to you but you are officially a last-minute shopper. 

But don't panic just yet, we are here to help.

Here are some last minute DIY gift ideas from Pinterest that you can consider making for your loved ones.

1. DIY Scrabble coasters

For the scrabble afficionado, this would be perfect. Simply get old scrabble tiles and glue them onto thick, cork material and spray sealant to make sure drink spills don't ruin the coaster. 

2. Lace-patterned notebook

All you need is some lace, fabric spray, and a simple notebook. Just place the lace over the notebook and spray over the lace evenly. Remove it, and voila - you've got a pretty notebook.

3. DIY Mugs

It's the thought that counts right? Simply buy cheap mugs from stores like Daiso and doodle away with a sharpie. 

4. Sweet orange sugar scrub

This is what you will need: bowl and spatula, canning funnel, measuring cups, air-tight jars, 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup grapeseed oil, 10 drops sweet orange essential oil, and some food colouring in yellow and red. 

First, you stir the sugar before adding the grapeseed oil. Then you slowly add in the sweet orange essential oil. After that, add the food colouring. 

5. Unique friendship bracelets

6. DIY Chunky necklace

Chunky necklaces are so in

You would need some washers and jump rings - both of which are most likely available at the nearest hardware store. An old chain and nail polish in your preferred colour will round up the items you need to make this trendy necklace.
