Handmade Gifts HeaderThis week our craters have done their level best to come up with a great handmade gift idea to share. Without further ado, let’s showcase the projects!

Handmade Gifts Challenge

Project #1 Crocheted Advent Calendar

For my gift project I decided to not do an actual gift, although you could give it as a gift, but instead a way of giving gifts.

Crocheted Mini Stocking Advent

I have been wanting to make a crocheted advent calendar for a long time and figured this was a perfect opportunity to do that. My kids love getting a little treat each day leading up to Christmas, it is like a little gift every day.

I made 24 little stockings, big enough to hold a few pieces of candy, in fun, bright colors and a variety of patterns. 

Project #2 Glitter Candle Holders

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create unique gifts that are thoughtful and make a beautiful statement. Most of the supplies needed to create these simple Glitter Candle Holders were items I already had on hand.

The glass candles are from the dollar store and are painted with Frosted Glass spray paint. A thin layer of Mod Podge was brushed  around the top and bottom of the glass and sprinkled with  gold and silver glitter.

To add a holiday touch, I used my Silhouette to cut out holiday shapes using metallic vinyl.  

Project #3 Holiday Wrap and Packaging

This weeks theme was gifts and I struggled to think of something new and amazing to wow you all with.

Instead I decided that I was going to focus on gift wrapping and packaging! I created all of these packages using just feathers cut from patterned cardstock on my silhouette, simple holiday sprigs, flowers and ornaments, plus some alphabet stamps and ink pads!
