Everybody could use a little bit of relaxation. With today’s gift idea, you could give this to anybody on your list. I made a bunch of these last year for Christmas; Renee has told me that she uses hers daily!
DIY Neck Wrap
Supplies (makes 2):
- 1/4 yard flannel fabric
- 8 cups un-cooked rice
Cut the flannel in half across the width so that it is roughly 9″ x 20″ (the length will be determined on how wide the fabric was to begin with).
Fold the fabric in half length-wise with right sides facing each other.
Sew one of the short ends and the long end. I also like to sew a little bit on the second short end so that it is easier to sew the final end after it is filled.
Clip the corners and flip right side out.
Fill with about 4 cups of un-cooked rice. Make sure to leave enough room so that the neck wrap can be folded and molded to your neck. You could add a couple drops of essential oil to the rice for a nice scent, just make sure it’s not one that the receiver is allergic to or doesn’t like.
Fold in the raw edges and sew the end closed. You can either opt to do a ladder stitch so that it is invisible or just sew it closed with the machine. Last year I did all of them with the invisible stitch but if I did them again I would probably just sew it closed with the machine.
To use, heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals until nice and warm (but not too hot).
Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial for a DIY Neck Wrap. I found that they were relatively quick and easy gifts that make a great impression.
