Resin Gifts Beginners Can Make

DIY Resin Tray

Resin tray is an easy project for beginners to make and a great resin gift for friends. They always come out gorgeous and stunning even if you just simply pour the resin without mixing any colors and embed the dried flowers that you love! No matter what things you want to embed in resin, remember to do a small layer of resin and let them get slightly tacky so that they will stay in place.

Resin Diamond Coaster

Believe it or not, this energizing coaster would make a perfect gift this holiday for those people who love colorful rainbows! The colors are always not limited so you can release your creative ideas to try different colors mixed. 

🌈P.S. If you want layered colors effect as shown in the picture, you need to prepare a few batches of colored resin in advance and pour them into the molds quickly in turn.

Tree of Life Artwork

It definitely jumps to the top of your gift list. There are many options to try for the actual tree trunks and branches in different seasons, like yellow and green with a light brown trunk for spring, red and orange with dark brown trunk for Autumn. 

You can also try to put your own picture in the middle and then your parents on each side as someone who comes from a family that is heavy into family history. If possible, you could fit in one more generation.

Bee Phone Stand

The phone stand is always functional rather than decorative. But the common phone stand you made using a mold makes you feel discouraged because the phone dissipates heat and the phone stand surface absorbs all the heat that it bends and warps. 

This phone stand made with bee elements meets either functional or decorative demands. Also, the stand surface would not absorb too much heat produced by the phone.

Resin Pens

Handcrafted resin pens are pretty much the epitome of functional art! I'm sure they can make beautiful gifts and stocking fillers for Christmas. They are also quick and simple to make and would sell well at any craft show.

But one thing you have to notice is that the resin pens you made are not refillable in this tutorial. If you figure out how to make refillable pens, you're more than welcome to let us know!

P.S. The flat edge of these pens can prevent them from rolling off the table.
