Sarah’s Current Top Ten DIY Christmas Gift Ideas from around the Web

As is probably the case with most single-income families, our Christmas gifting will be based on a very tight budget. Luckily, there are a slew of excellent DIY gifts for a crafty person to make that won’t break or necessarily reflect the (severe) monetary restictions we’ll be working within! Here are some of the best ones I’ve found so far:

Pretty Painted Candlesticks from Brit + Co

Chalkboard Painted Wine Glasses

Paint-Dipped Brass Candlesticks

Etched Whiskey Glasses

Cute Cork Coasters

Another Coaster Design

Chalkboard Blocks for the Kiddos

Super Cute Hot Cocoa Ornaments (a dozen with a bottle of Irish cream would make a great hostess gift!)

A Myriad of Mason Jar Upcycles

Fabric Flower Headband (the instructions are in Chinese, but the pictures are very easy to follow)


Why This Blog Exists

Greetings, Internet (and hi, Mom!). This blog is an outlet for two twenty-something stay-at-home moms to retain their respective sanities and connect with the outside world. We’ll be posting about kids, homes, music, books, diy projects, cooking, and teacherly things (as we are both former teachers). We hope someone out there enjoys it!
