Recycled Ski and Pallet Sled The sleds are very cheap to make but they go fast. Gift them to older kids or pull your little ones around on it. For them, you could even add a back and sides.
Quilt Potholders Love to quilt and need a little project that can be finished quickly? These might be just what you need and they're a great way to use smaller bits of fabric that you love. I gave these as gifts to siblings and a few friends last year. They were so fun to make.
Homemade Fire Starters Need a gift idea for a man (or woman) who loves burning wood? Make them some fire starters using small Christmas cookie cutters and package them up in a brown sandwich bag (or a jar) with some red ribbon.
Keepsake Name Sign Craft stores have everything you need to put these name signs together and they're very sweet, don't you think?
Simple Knotted Fleece Blankets My sister gave our kids these blankets for Christmas a few years ago. I couldn't believe how easy the instructions sound. Our kids still use these nightly during the colder weather, often bringing them downstairs with them in the mornings.
Homemade Stilts Jamey made these for our kids many years ago. They still use them and he's raised the foot holds as they grow and are able to maneuver higher off the ground.
Pumpkin Streusel Bread I couldn't put this post together without mentioning a baked gift, could I? This is my most-often baked gift and I hope to make some mini loaves of it this year for gifts and to have on hand to take to potlucks and get-togethers.
Do you have any homemade gift ideas for this year? I have another one but if I share it won't be a surprise so you'll just have to wait :-).Pin It
