With the right supplies and just a little bit of time, you can make special DIY gifts for everyone on your list!
We’ve all been there. The holidays sneak up on us and all of our best laid plans for homemade gifts are for naught: the elaborate baking projects become too overwhelming; the meaningful quilts, felted ornaments, and knit blankets are still weeks from being finished; those lovely extracts need a few more months to cure than you have on hand.
It’s okay, take a breath. Here are some beautiful DIY presents – both food and craft – that won’t take you several months and all of your free time to make. Each is great for the holidays, as host(ess) gifts, or for any other celebratory event you want to gift something handmade that doesn’t break the bank (or the clock, as it were).
