My go-to list of 8 simple handmade gifts to make this year for Christmas. via

A Handmade Christmas — Simple Gifts You Can Make NOW

This year I thought it’d be fun to share a bunch of handmade Christmas gift ideas here on the blog. Of course, I thought of this idea and then realized I was going to have to get them finished well before Christmas in order to share them with you. The good thing is I was able to finish lots of Christmas gifts really early this year, so thank you.

One of my goals is to share simple tutorials that don’t take a lot of time for you to make, and that goal is intensified during this time of the year. I’m sure many of us have bought all of the supplies for projects we were going to make for Christmas and then found ourselves frantically making them the night before. Or was that just me?

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this list. It’s been a lot of fun putting it together this year. I hope you have an amazing handmade Christmas!
