DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

We are on a budget in this house for Christmas gifts this year.  I decided that I would try to make all of our gifts that we would be giving to family and friends this year.  I want things to be more personal and more original - which also meant I needed some ideas.  

Here are some of the gifts I will be attempting to recreate for Christmas gift exchanges. 

Find these fun ideas here:
