I love the idea of homemade gifts, and even though I’ve pretty much given up on the idea for this year (I can’t do it all), I did do some research and brainstorming for some ideas. There is still time to make these happen if you’re up for it!
Dip dyed placemats – I’ve never done any of my own dyeing but I hear it’s pretty simple. These are so pretty!
Stained letterpress block – I’ve been meaning to do this one for awhile. A five-minute, personalized project, perfect to display.
Woven wall hanging – these can be super simple to make. Double up on the yarn and it’ll go faster.
Quilted coasters – These look pretty straightforward if you have a small amount of sewing skills.
Cloth napkins – Or, even more simple in the sewing arena, just get some pretty fabric and make it into napkins.
Cleaning supplies gift basket – How nice would it be to get some all-natural, good-smelling cleaning supplies with recipes? Great ideas and links here.
Well sorry family, you are probably not getting any of these lovely gifts this year. But if I start working on them now, maybe by next Christmas. :)
Have you ever done homemade gifts? Would you consider it?
