10 Handmade Gift Ideas

Since the holidays will be here before you know it, I decided to help you out (you’re welcome) and round up some two twenty one DIY projects that you can easily make for the special people in your life.  Because nothing says “I love you, and you better appreciate this gift because I burnt myself with my glue gun while making it for you” like a handmade gift.  These handmade gifts are easy to make and inexpensive.  Because we all know that I can be lazy and cheap.

GREAT inexpensive handmade gift ideas!

    I think your DIY lucite tray was the first thing I ever created from Pinterest way back in February. I’ve made several as gifts for friends and family and is the reason I am now a self-taught Photoshop Elements addict. I just bought out my local Container Store’s supply of trays for Christmas gifts. :)

    Thanks for posting again and can’t wait to try some of your other ideas.

    You crack me up! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been injured somehow doing homemade gifts that always take 3 times longer than you intend! But they’re always so greatly appreciated, which is what REALLY counts :) Thanks for sharing!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in
    it or something. I think that you can do with some pics
    to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
