If our 2015 Holiday Gift Guides have been serving you well but you're also looking for a DIY experience, head to Artists & Fleas's free holiday show this weekend. Taking place in DTLA's Arts District on Saturday (December 19th) and Sunday (December 20th) 11am to 5pm, will host more than 80 holiday-ready vendors, as well as a series of creative, hands-on workshops.
At 11am, attendees can take in a coffee scrub workshop ($10-$20), which will offer a selection of essential oils that can be mixed with organic virgin coconut oil and fragrant coffee grounds. 1pm will feature a build-your-own "mocha mask" and roll on cologne for men and women ($10). 3pm will present our favorite, DIY gingerbread "campers," which will be a modern, hipster take on your traditional gingerbread house. That session costs $40 and will be lead by design star Nadia Gellar.
