DIY Christmas Gifts


   Christmas is the time of year where families come together to spend some more time with each other. Some people like to go on vacations, decorate the house, go shopping for gifts or even do homemade gifts. Christmas is getting closer and closer and you don’t have any idea on what to get your loved ones. What makes homemade gifts so special is that even though they do take a little time, energy, and effort, not to mention it is usually a little easier on the budget.

Here are some ideas for what to get your family/friends:

1. Yarn Ornaments

To make: Wrap yarn around a clear plastic Christmas ornament, holding the beginning of the yarn in place with a dab of hot glue, until the ornament is completely covered. Thread bamboo cocktail picks through the yarn to mimic knitting needles. Hang as desired.

2. Christmas Tree Cupcakes

To Make: Put together a DIY kit for the baker in your life. Mix up the dry ingredients for your favorite cookie (We love a good sugar cookie .) Attach a cookie cutter, a light shaped ornament filled with cookie decor, and baking instructions.
