Last week we featured some easy handmade craft projects to give as holiday gifts. This week I would like to share some more projects and gift ideas…look for upcoming posts about experience gifts and last minute ideas!
First up, for those friends and family members in your life who like to craft or aspire to craft, Crafting a Green World posted some new crafting books they recommend:
And for parents, this is a great resource: Green Crafts for Children: 35 Step-by-Step Projects Using Natural, Recycled, and Found Materials.
I really like this one: The Green Crafter: 53 Eco-Friendly Projects for Every Week of the Year.
There are more books they recommend, so make a visit to their site!
Next, the Advent Calendar. Though it’s a bit late for this year, I also think yo could make one as a present to give to someone for next year’s holiday season. It’s a very easy project and great for multiple people to work on together. All you need are some office supplies, brown paper bags, and surprises for each day.
Next, Superhero capes! I really love these and will most likely make one for my nephew next year. All you need are some old sheets and a sewing machine. I also know that recovergirl has made similar capes using old towels.
Holiday Wreaths! I have two to share with you – Design*Sponge featured this clothesline wreath last week that is EASY to make and looks great – I really like the subtle colors. Also, last year made a beautiful, colorful felted wreath out of sweater scraps. Handmade wreaths are great gifts that friends and family can take out every year and think of you!
What are you making for gifts this year?
