During the holiday season, one thing that everyone looks forward to is getting gifts. If this year you are having quite a handful of people to give gifts to, then it is time you consider making your own gifts for the holiday. Find below some creative and easy crafts that you can make at home as wonderful and personalized Christmas gifts to give your loved ones.
While there are several options that you can look at when you consider making your own gifts, the easiest material to choose from is paper. For example; you can turn an inexpensive notebook in to an artistically designed gift made by you. Various materials such as floral papers, stickers, hand written words can make the recipient feel special while gifts such as fruit hampers Sydney do not reflect the effort or personalization. Furthermore, you can also make hand-made cards using your creativity and artistic flair.
You can also put your stitching and sewing skills to good use by stitching designs for an electronic device such as an iphone or ipad cover. Although, sewing a case like this might take far more time than buying a beautifully decorated cake with edible flowers from Flowers by Fruit, the extra effort and time you put will certainly be appreciated and valued by the recipient in time to come. You can also make accessories such as hair bands, shoe bows for girls and neck ties and belts for the boys. Children would also appreciate hand -made soft toys that perhaps have their names on it or are their favourite cartoon character. Picking out colourful and cute fabrics will make for a great gift.
In addition to sewing items, you can also make a lasting impression and a useful gift to someone if you hand knit a warm fuzzy scarf or perhaps a beanie or blanket if you are in the cold regions. If you do not know knitting, you can go the extra mile by learning the craft easily through various websites, video tutorials and books. This will not only add to your skill set but will definitely make your recipient feel special. Other clothing items that you can personalize are t-shirts and most fathers love a good sweater with a personalized wording hand sewn or painted in them.
Turn photos in to gifts
If you have photos with the recipient of your gifts, you can buy a picture frame from the local store and customize it according to how you like it. Adding unique designs from fabrics, paint and adhesive paper will give depth and character to an otherwise boring picture frame.
