I’m a handmade girl when it comes to Christmas gifts (big surprise, right?). I love store-bought gifts too, but there is just something special about putting love and effort into making something for a friend or family member. Usually I crochet scarves or make ornaments, but this year I thought I would search farther afield for other awesome DIY handmade gift ideas.
The good news about these handmade gift ideas? Literally ANYONE can make them. I specifically chose tutorials that anyone can make, no matter their skill level. You don’t have to be “crafty” in order to make a handmade gift! Just head to your local craft store, pick up a couple of supplies, and follow along with the tutorial to make an awesome and one-of-a-kind gift that everyone is sure to love! People will be impressed. Trust me 😉
