Friday I'm In Love...With DIY Gift Ideas!

There has been no shortage of Holiday Decorating out in the blogosphere this week, but I decided to take a different route with my favorites for this edition.  This week I want to focus on DIY Gift Ideas.  Let's face it, for most people - money is tight this year, and I know I would rather receive a handmade gift - how 'bout you?  Here's some fun projects I found that won't break your bank!

I loved these DIY Soap Wrappers from Funkytime.  These would make a great Teacher's gift or stocking stuffer!  Sibylle even shares the printable file to make these very wrappers!

Calendars are always a great gift to give - everyone could use one, right?  Jaime Lyn over at Crafty Scrappy Happy shared a tutorial to make this calendar using Cut It Out Frames!  This came out so cute - just in time for the holidays!  PS - she is doing a giveaway on her blog right now to win some of these frames, so head over there and enter!!

I absolutely love these Lump of Coal gifts from the gals at Eighteen25.  How stinkin' cute right?  The best part?  The coal is edible!  I know a few naughty folks that I could give this to!

These DIY Photo Coasters would make such a great gift for a grandparent!  Liz from The Quick Journey shares a tutorial on how to make these - AND they are super inexpensive (she got the coaster base at The Dollar Store!!)  LOVE!!!

And finally, I couldn't resist this DIY Heart Bracelet from WobiSobi!  Anne always has the best ideas and tutorials - wouldn't this be a fabulous gift for a friend or sister? 

If you were featured - feel free to grab a button from my sidebar.

I hope these ideas have helped you plan out some gifts for friends and family!  I know which ones I will be making this year!  I need to get a serious jump on my gifts - I am so behind!!!
