Christmas DIY Projects

I'm starting to think about Christmas DIY gifts already this year.  Even though I am home on maternity leave, I seem to have less time than I did while working.  So I'm hoping to get a head start.  I did a few projects last year that turned out really well so I thought it would be fun to revisit those for others who are also looking for homemade gifts to do.
I also have fun every year creating personalized gift tags with my husband's face.
Maybe this year I will try to use the whole family.

If you have gift project ideas that are not too time consuming, please share in the comments section.
I need all the help I can get this year!

  2. I haven't been working on gifts, but I have on decor and it's been so fun! It has been slow though since I don't really feel like I have the time either : ) I love those accessory stands!

  3. Isn't it insane how being home with baby keeps you busier than a full time job away from home?? I hear you. I think I am going to make wreaths for my family this year. Using yarn and felt flowers, I have a few examples on my Pinterest. They seem easy, fast and I think I already have all supplies on hand. Except the form which is only $5 at michaels!
