As Diamond Painters, we know how much dedication and love goes into each project. So when it comes to gifting, we think DIY presents are the best! There is nothing more special than giving a craft from the heart.
We’ve walked you through how to turn your leftover diamonds into Christmas decorations, household décor, and fun crafts. This week, we’re going to show you how to turn your drills into gifts, thanks to submissions from the wonderful folks in our Paint With Diamonds Support Group .
