Holiday Craft & Homemade Gift Ideas

Here is the last segment of our Super Saturday & DIY craft ideas. Today I’m featuring a few holiday inspired crafts and unique homemade gift ideas. Enjoy!

I’m loving Michelle’s DIY Photo Letter Frames. It’s a great conversation piece, gift for the person who has everything.

I really like these picture tile boards. Here’s one from the Peterson Family. You can use any family photo or picture and you can even frame it. I found a tutorial on how to make them here.

Have you seen these etched name Pyrex pans? You can personalize them for Christmas gifts, wedding gifts, and birthday gifts. I’ve even seen them with little embellishments like a flower on one side. Kairle made a tutorial on how to make them.

You can purchase Tina’s holiday & birthday banner kits. I love all the different ribbon’s she used.

Take a look at Carolyn’s Halloween stackers. I really like the black cat’s on the side.

Look how simple and cute this Boo frame is!

Amanda submitted her fall crafting and different ideas for fall home decor.

This is Shauna’s favorite fall tradition, a blessing box. It makes a great Super Saturday Project and also ideal for youth groups, scouts, schools, etc.

Erin has several craft ideas over on her blog. I received a Believe block like this one a couple years ago and I still love it! It would also be fun to have it say “Let it Snow”.

Look at Scrappy Shiek’s holiday tags! I’m dying to spend a day stocking up on these to embellish my gifts this year.

I made a bunch of placemat purses and used them as gift bags last year. They are so easy and you can find the tutorial here and other craft ideas here.

Cathie Filian has yet another fun and fabulous idea, painted sneakers!

Kelly has also modge podged some really cool things! Be sure to check out her ‘Not Your Mama’s Craft Night’ posts.

Kelly made the cutest t-shirts using freezer paper stencils. They turned out amazing.

Shannon’s marshmallow shooters are cracking me up. With 3 boys in my house, these would be a huge hit!

I thought these root beer Reindeer were darling on So Inspired. What a great friend or neighbor gift idea this holiday season.

  1. These ideas are FANTASTICO! I was just telling Mr. Pass It On Plates that I wanted to do hand made gifts again this year for Christmas and was sorry I had missed out on berry season for making jams and liqueurs.

    I think this will get just about all of my holiday gifts taken care of. (I was naming people to give the gifts to as I looked through your post.)

    Thank you!!

  2. Sweet! I am so excited about the pyrex idea! I have seen it before and thought it was so neat and now I can do it myself!

  3. Hey! I just wanted to tell you to check out my blog, I gave you a Brilliant Weblog Award!! because I just love your blog and what you do so much!

    As always, super cool tips Laurie! I really love the T-shirts and the etched pan!! Wonderful ideas!

  5. Hey Laurie! You’re getting a double whammy on the Brilliant Weblog Award cuz I nominated you too! ūüôā Congrats!

  6. My ds has a marshmallow shooter. It’s a bit more complicated looking than the one you posted (more pipe and connectors), but same basic concept. My dad bought it for him at a craft fair. He loves it. I live in constant fear of being pelted with mini marshmallows every time I turn a corner. Good times.

  7. Love this site and all the fab ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Hey ,

    Sounds great that you know all about your stuff! Its intriguing when you speak to someone who knows what they speak about, as oppose to reciting it from someone else they learned from. I can see you are very experienced and with your credentials it is quite obvious that you will make it far in life, or have already made it far in life ūüôā

  9. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  10. Why not begin a new and original family tradition for giving anniversary year presents that is guaranteed to delight and satisfy men and women alike

  13. Congratulations for such a wonderful blog. Great text! keep up!

  14. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

  15. Wow! brilliant idea very creative all of them looks adorable. Anyway,will certainly visit your site more often now.


  16. I love the Believe, customized item. Thank you for sharing this post.
