As the year passes, there are occasions that bring one topic to mind…Buying loved ones’ gifts! It can be so difficult to find the right thing for the right person at the right price. So…why not consider making some gifts? Here is a list of 10 gifts that you can make yourself! While some of these gifts may require you to buy materials, there may be others where you already have all the necessary supplies.

For this gift, all you will need is a frame, a few pictures, and the rest is improvised! Inside the frame, you place pictures of you (and said person), a note to them, magazine clip-outs, dried flowers, and other things to make it your own. Anything you can think of that will fit into the frame!

Nature holiday decor, what’s not to love? These decorative trees are made with sweetgum balls (these aren’t found in the candy aisle, but rather in your backyard!), hot glue, and cardboard. The instructions are listed below.

  1. Gather all your sweetgum balls. You will probably need more than you think!
  2. Cut out a circular piece of cardboard. This will be the base of your tree, so make sure to make it however wide you would like your tree to be.
  3. Begin hot-gluing a layer of sweetgum balls down on this piece to form the base of your tree.
  4. Once you have that whole piece covered, glue a second layer that is slightly smaller so that it does not go all the way to the edge.
  5. Repeat this process until you have reached the top of your tree.
  6. Once your tree is fully built, feel free to spray paint and decorate with whatever you like!
