Hey Look - blog header



The idea of "DIY gifts" sometimes gives me the image of pre-school macaroni-decorated picture frames or baskets of christmas cookies decorated with too many sprinkles in all colors of the rainbow. But homemade gift giving can be quite sophisticated, too. And it's a lovely way to show someone that you care about them. I've searched the web for ideas and instructions for DIY christmas gift and found some true beauties that are easy to make. Here are a few of my favorites:
