Hockey Gift Idea

If you have hockey players in your life, you know all the usual gift ideas.  Jerseys, sticks, new socks, hockey books, etc.  But if you need a little stocking stuffer or a diy homemade gift, then I have an idea for you!

Earlier this year, my husband and I (yes, together) made personalized hockey pucks for all the kids on our team.  I am not sure where I got the idea from (I can’t give Pinterest credit this time), but it was so simple and the kids loved their pucks.

Here’s what you need:

  • plain black hockey pucks (about $1 at Canadian Tire)
  • a jar of Modge Podge (available at craft stores
  • image to place on top of puck

Give your hockey pucks a quick wipe down to take off any dust or dirt and let it dry.  Find your image online or make a monogram, whatever you want to put on the puck.  We chose to make pucks with the initials of each player and printed them off in the shape of a circle as we found this covered the puck the best.

Cut out your image to be just slightly smaller than the face of the hockey puck.  Using a small wide paint or foam brush (I like using foam brushes), spread some Modge Podge onto the face of the puck.  While it is still wet, carefully place your image on top.  After it has set (a few minutes), paint some Modge Podge on top of the image.

You may notice it start to buckle a little if you use too much. Don’t worry, you can try and spread it out now, or use a tiny pin to poke a hole and let the air out later.

Once it has dried, feel free to give it another coat of Modge Podge.  It just helps to harden the image on the puck surface.

And then you are done!  It is really such a simple gift to make and who wouldn’t love a personalized hockey puck?
