gifts to craft

Friday, December 9, 2011

As I mentioned, we're not a big spending family for the holidays. I've found that people can usually buy themselves whatever they need, but something made is unique. I've received many a handmade gift that I really cherish. My favorites?

Homemade Vanilla Sugar Scrub

Shaped Crayons

Hand-Sewn Apron

Homemade marinated vegetables or spice blends.

Tissue Envelope, seriously so helpful.

Decorated Globe - this is not actually a craft but I think it would be fun to attempt for a kid's room with some butterflies, or maybe even superhero stickers? It is originally decoupage if you want to just purchase it.

Also I am a fan of food gifts, such as these cheddar crackers.

Or maybe some snack mix?

Or maybe just some old fashioned cookies.
