Why not get creative and make some DIY marble items for your friends and family? These 5 items are not only easy to make, but they’re also fun! They made lovely and thoughtful gifts, perfect for any occasion.

These marble mugs are just the thing.  A truly personalized, perfect cup!  The mugs themselves cost only about $1-2 and just a few minutes to make, but look completely high end.

2. DIY Marble Paper

I was skeptical when Lauren told me about marbling paper with food coloring and shaving cream. How can you possibly get those gorgeous swirly patterns with just pantry and bathroom items?! It seemed either too complicated to try or too good to be true. But I’m always up for a challenge or to debunk a myth. But I’m happy to report that marbling paper with shaving cream is, indeed, too good to be true and beyond easy. In fact, I went through 3 cans of shaving cream after my first attempt – it’s addicting. Beware.

3. DIY Marble Candles

Want to add some personality to your space? An eye-catching pair of marbled candles and vintage candlesticks will add excitement to your dining room or mantle.

4. DIY Marble Coasters

These nail varnish marbled coasters were inspired by some eggs that we marbled a couple of years ago.  It is a great kids craft for older children.  I did this with Mini who is ten and he loved it.  In fact, he now wants to marble anything that isn’t tied down, so I am going to get some mugs.

5. DIY Marble Ring Dishes

It’s easy and lots of fun to marble with nail polish. My obsession with nail polish marbling came after I marbled mini pumpkins with nail polish for Halloween. I thought it would fun to try marbling little ring dishes next. The results were amazing! Wouldn’t these marbled ring dishes make wonderful Valentine’s gifts. I share all of my secrets below.
