Unique Types Of Horse-Themed Gifts That You Can Make

Posted on

If you are trying to find the perfect gift for someone who loves horses, you might want to take a few moments to review the following ideas. By making your own horse-themed gifts, you are sure to provide a gift that no one else will be giving that person.  

Horseshoe Photo Frame

Using horseshoes is a great way to show off a love a horses. If you do not have any of your own that you can use, you may be able to purchase them online or at a local antique or gift shop. Find a plain wood frame photo frame that is wide enough to support the weight of the horseshoes. The wider the frame, the easier it will be to attach the horseshoes on there without having to worry about them falling off. Do not make the mistake of assuming that you can use glue to hold the horseshoes in place. They are metal and have a lot of weight to them. It is best to nail them into the frame. Simply nail them in place in whatever pattern you like the most. You might also want to think about adding a picture to the frame for an extra special touch.   

Coffee Mug With Painted Horseshoes

You will first need to purchase a plain white coffee mug, craft paint, and paint brushes. You can hand paint horseshoes of various sizes and colors on the mug. Make sure that you are allowing the paint plenty of time to dry before touching it. This may take a few hours depending on how much paint you used. Once it is finished, you can wrap it up as is and give it to your loved one. You can also decide to turn this unique coffee mug into a unique planter for small flowers. Add some potting soil and plant a small flower and place it in a gift bag so it can get plenty of air.

Horseshoe Trivet For Hot Pots And Pans

Take three or four horseshoes, depending on how big you want it to be, and weld them together so that they connect to form a trivet for hot pots and pans. This is a much better option than buying a plain trivet to protect tables and counters from the hot pots and pans, as this is personalized with something that interests him or her.

With those three unique horse themed gifts that you can make in mind, you should have no trouble coming up with something that the special person in your life will appreciate. Contact a local outlet, such as Sigoli Gifts, for further assistance.
