This year I will be making my Holiday Gifts! This is a great way to save money and to make a one-of-a-kind gift for the special people in your life.
Several easy homemade gift ideas are:
Simple leather journal
Soy container candles, scented or unscented
Leather draw string bag, pouch
All of these are simple DIY projects and only take a couple of hours, tops. You can do an internet search and watch a video or get the step by step instructions. IF the instructions go on and on, do another search with the word “easy” in it. None of these projects are “Rocket Science” and any beginner can accomplish every one of these.
I melt the wax for my soy candles in the microwave in a “microwaveable safe glass bowl”. It is easy, fun and I love the fact I have candles made by me in my home! When making the leather draw string bag, there is no sewing if it is round (like a dinner plate)! Punch holes evenly spaced, run a string or leather lacing and it is done. You can choose to decorate with beads or if you are using suede leather you can paint on it. It is really simple and fast.
So choose your project, don’t go overboard when getting the supplies. Simple is always better and won’t hit you in your pocket book like a bomb went off. Your friends and family will love the gifts you made just for them and you will not have to touch those credit cards this year!
If this is not your cup of tea, then support local crafters and go to a craft show to get your unique handmade gits!
