December 3 is Make a Gift Day. Even if the day has passed, let us, welders, take advantage of the holiday season by actually making something for our dear loved ones most especially now that Christmas is just days away. Here are 5 holiday welding projects you can do and maybe give as gifts to family and friends. 


There really is nothing so special when it comes to the history of this day. But there was a time when hand-made gifts are the only sort of gift one could give. And while buying something in the mall is easier, nothing will ever beat giving someone something made with your bare hands. 

5 Holiday Welding Projects you can do

1 Rebar Christmas Tree welding project

First on the list is a no brainer. Go ahead and make your family or your friend a sturdy Christmas Tree with branches made out of rebar. This is one tree they are sure to have for many years. Nowadays, anything unique is the way to go. 

Any welding process and a metal chop saw can do the trick. Just make sure you tack weld the branches to the metal trunk. Make sure you get a large piece of rebar for the trunk. With that, small rebar branches can easily attach to it.

2 Sheet Metal Reindeer Lawn Ornaments welding project

These antlered beasts will take some planning but it definitely is something very special to make. Designing and cutting take a lot of work as compared to welding them. Make sure you have the sizes right for every piece to make sure you save time in the welding process.

Once you have it all together, put on some paint and a string of light and you’re sure to have that family or friend of yours extra happy on the holidays.

3 Jewelry Holder Tree welding project

Here’s one you can give to the women in your life – your wife, sister, mother! Go for an elegant jewelry holder tree where they can put all those necklaces, rings, and bracelets. You can never go wrong with anything that has to do with helping out the women in your life get organized in style – welding style – that is.

All it takes is for you to weld some small straight pieces of steel together. Form it into a tree and then fuse that into a square piece of steel for it to stand on its own.

4 Copper Display welding projects

To change things up a bit, why not work on something made of copper instead of just rebar? You could use some thin copper pipes and connectors and make a copper display of any style and shape you want. One that would suit the holidays like a mini Christmas Tree, reindeer, a snowflake, or any other object that best represents Christmas – or not.

You could go with just anything that would represent how much you love them like a flower, maybe. Whatever object you decide to shape that copper into, make sure it fits the style of the person you are giving it to. TIG welding would work best for this kind of project.

5 Tealight holders welding project

Last on the list would be some tealight holders. What is Christmas without the warmth you feel at home with all those candles around. Make sure people you care about know how much you love them by giving them so tealight holders they can use on any day and not just on Christmas Day.

Your metal cutting skills will be put to test on this one. Think of a design that best suits the person you are giving it to. Once you have it all together, you can finish with some bronze powder or black finish if you’d like.

It’s Thanksgiving and that means Christmas is just around the corner. The question is – do you already have a gift for that welder in your life? It’s not that hard to please these men and women who work hard every day. But because of the nature of their job which can be tough, the least we could do for them is give them a gift that would surely make them know how much they are appreciated. Whether it’s for the holidays, birthdays, or anniversaries, we give you cool gifts for welders in your life. 

Cool Gifts for Welders in your Life

With so many things you could buy online, it can be a bit overwhelming to even start browsing the internet for what to buy. Here are some ideas that just might narrow down the choices you have. 

A Cool Leather Welding Jacket

First on the list is one that makes them look cool even while at work – the Waylander leather welding jacket. This is made with genuine split cowhide leather. It’s breathable, flame resistant, durable, and lightweight. This is hands down one of the best gifts you could give a welder. 


A 5 in 1 Leather Tool Holder

At the top of our list is a 5 in 1 Leather Tool Holder. All these words in one sentence just make sense. It’s handy, it can hold more tools, and it’s leather, which means it can last long. Have hammers, screwdrivers, or lumber crayons, pencils, and pliers all in one handy holder. This gives welders in your life the convenience they need and not to mention making it safer for them minimizing movement in the workplace. 

BBQ Grill Tool Set

If there’s another tool welders love using, it’s any tool to do some barbecue. Get them a BBQ grill toolset that is just as sexy as they are (wink wink). Nobody would even know they carry it with them since it comes in a metal briefcase. 

Waylander Welding Apparel

We’re not gonna lie, we want welders in your life to have that Waylander Welding apparel that looks absolutely cool for when they go out on any day. We’ve got hats and shirts that are great for that laid back weekend or that vacation you’ve planned for a long time. Let people know they’re one of the welders out there who know how to look good not just on the job. 

These five cool gifts for welders are sure to make the holidays extra special for them. If not on Thanksgiving or Christmas, any day would work. In fact, you can show them how much they’re appreciated any day of the year.
