Who needs Black Friday? Today I’m sharing 18 ideas for hand-made gifts that anyone can make! Who doesn’t love a hand-made gift? And the pride you feel as they are unwrapping what you so lovingly (Okay so sometimes there are curse words involved) created is second to none!
Let’s start off with a project to help loved ones stay organized? Like this cabinet door turned jewelry organizer.
It could also be used for coats, purses, towels, and more!
How about something for Grandma? This was a gift for my Mother-in-law. It’s all of her grandbabies and she loved it!
Has anyone on your gift list recently moved into a new home? How about a practical, but much-needed gift…a pretty fabric covered monogrammed wastebasket?
Have you priced nice wastebaskets lately? They can be expensive!
Is there a baby to buy for? How about this simple anyone-can-make baby quilt made from receiving blankets?
Here’s a project that will compliment anyone’s living space, and you can use any fabric to match any décor!
How about something fun and helpful that will bring a smile while folding laundry?
Is there anyone who loves to cook on your gift list? This system was perfect for getting my recipes under control!
Looking for an easy and inexpensive teacher’s gift idea? These are a great way to help organize papers while grading on the go!
Here’s a perfect way to organize photos and other mementos…perfect for a teen’s room or an office!
And for that special person that seems to have everything? How about a pretty monogrammed plaque?
Need a little hostess gift? This Monogrammed Mini Twig Wreath Ornament is perfect!
Here’s a sweet gift that is intended for the holidays, but really could be used all year long…this cute Christmas Tree Pillow! I made mine from vintage bedspreads, but you don’t have too!
How about something you can make for anyone who has kiddos, pets, or even for the kiddos themselves…silhouette ornaments! They’ll be treasured for years to come.
Ever asked for appliance covers for Christmas? I bet you wouldn’t mind getting one of these?
If there’s any chance you can get your hands on some discarded fence pickets, here a few ideas that would make great gifts at little to no cost to you!
Of course there’s no reason you couldn’t use brand new lumber also!
Do you have a gardener on your list? How about this cute-as-can-be teapot feature for their garden?
How about a new wreath to hang on a friend’s door for after the Holidays? This wreath was made from twigs I gathered from behind my neighbor’s fence!
And my first Christmas project of this Holiday season were these Anthropologie-inspired stockings made from old sweaters I rescued from the Goodwill Donation Bag.
These would make great gifts and you could also fill them with more goodies.
Maybe one of these gift ideas will work for someone special on your gift list? Not only will you save money by making your gifts, they will be gifts from the heart! And you won’t have to wrestle someone in the electronics aisle at Best Buy or Walmart!
Hope your Holiday season is off to a great start!
