DIY Stocking Stuffer: Make Cute Constellation Notebooks for All Your Friends

We're still in love with trendy constellation motifs. Get the look for less with this easy DIY notebook perfect for stuffing a stocking.

From accessories to artwork to office supplies, constellations are having a major design moment. (This oversized constellation artwork is on my personal to-do list. I'm in love!) But apart from my walls, I'm also very into constellation-themed gifts. One reason: It's easy to personalize the gift with the recipient's zodiac sign. An easy-to-make, inexpensive gift that can be totally customized? Yep, it's true! See how I made them: 

DIY Constellation Notebook 01:01

Create a DIY constellation notebook for a personalized stocking stuffer.

Once you gather your supplies, these are so easy to produce in a batch. Mini brads (found in the scrapbooking section) make up the points of each constellation, with a simple stitch and metallic embroidery floss filling in the space between star. 

Best of all, we have 14 free, printable constellation stencils to choose from, including all 12 zodiac signs. Personalize each notebook with a gold paint pen and a name, and it's ready to stuff in a stocking or gift to a coworker. Your friends and family will love using them all year long to record their brightest ideas!
