Whether you are running out of gift-making time or just want to make some simple gifts, this group of crafts are quick and (mostly) don't require any special supplies.
1. Felt rose ring
This is a great little quick project. The tutorial is for a ring made from the little felt flower, but like the tee-shirt flower in last week's list, you could use the flower on a hair clip, a hair band, a pin, etc.
2. Baby sock coin purse
In last week's round-up, I suggested you make an owl softie from socks that have lost their mates. Here's a great little coin purse you can make from a baby sock that has lost its mate. Any house with a baby has a few of those!
3. Crayon monogram
I love this. Such a sweet, simple idea to make a monogram in a shadow box out of broken crayons. I love this for a baby shower gift, too.
4. 10 Christimas gifts in a jar
Would it really be Christmas without a gift in a jar? Here are recipes for several different options beyond just cookies and hot chocolate.
5. Soy candles in baby food jars or tea cups
These are *really* easy, if you use the pre-mixed soy wax and wicks from a craft store. Scent them with essential oils to make a set in baby jars, or use one lovely tea cup and saucer for a sweet gift for someone special.
I'm totally enamored with re-using baby jars these days. They are so small and cute! Here are a bunch of other things you can do with them. I love the spices with chalkboard-painted tops.
If you need some great (green!) ideas for ways to wrap up your lovely handmade items, here is a post over on Simple Mom with lots of creative options. I love the baby food jar as a container for a necklace!
Happy holiday crafting!
