Christmas is a wonderful time of year, from spending time with family and friends to eating our weight in turkey and treats. In all the excitement it’s easy to get carried away spending money and showering our loved ones with gifts.
For several years now, I’ve been trying to make sure that at least one part of every gift I give is homemade. Sometimes that’s as simple as making the gift tag or wrapping it using craft paper, twine, and greens. Lately, however, I’ve been diving deeper into DIY projects around Christmas time. Not only do I have fun doing it, but I save a little money and usually get really positive reactions from the giftees.
