DIY Christmas Gifts

Christmas gifts...is it me, or does it become more difficult each year to shop for certain people? There's at least a few on my list season after season that I just can't think of gifts for. I LOVE buying personal gifts...something that puts a smile on their face, that is out of the ordinary & a gift that they will enjoy for years to come.




Today, I'm sharing a round up of my DIY projects that will definitely make great gifts this holiday. I plan on making a few for those hard to shop people on my list because I think they will appreciate the personalized touch and get good use out of them.

If you click on the title of each gift idea it will take you to the step by step instructions listed for each project.
