It’s that time of the season when holiday gift guides are starting to pop up around the blogosphere. As much fun as it is to run around the store picking out gifts (trust me, I can relate) sometimes it feels just as good to go the old-fashioned route and craft it up for the holiday season. Below is a little round up of previous posts I’ve done on some things I regularly make for everyone on my list! Hopefully you’ll find something perfect! I’m not very crafty or artistic, so you have my guarantee that they’re all easy as pumpkin pie! Just click the links for my simple directions :)
There’s the No Sew Fleece Throw, which could be customized not only to match decor, but also for a favorite school or sports team’s colors for guys.
A holiday classic is always Embellished Picture Frames. These are especially great if your artistic ability is limited to stickers (aka me, lol.)
Decorative Wall Letters are also simple and extremely personalized. You could pick greek letters, someone’s monogrammed initials, or even a word such as “love” or “dream.”
If you’re feeling especially crafty, one of my favorite things I’ve ever made is a Personalized Cork and Magnet Combo Bulletin Board. This took a little more work than the others, but it truly is a wonderful gift and extremely useful. I think these also turned out pretty darn professional looking if I do say so myself.
What are your favorite things to make? Are you more of a crafter or a buyer? What’s the best handmade gift you’ve ever received?
