Almost Makes Perfect

Make the gift-giving process fun and affordable by DIY-ing a treat for your loved ones. Rather than breaking the bank on something impersonal, put your imagination to the test and create a gift they’ll really remember.

Art for your home can be extremely expensive. Large oil paintings and professional prints are impressive, but definitely more of a long-term investment. Luckily, you can still get your hands on great art without breaking the bank. All you have to do is take a look at what’s already lying around your home. Neck scarves, ticket stubs, stamps and even shopping bags can be transformed into beautiful art displays that are sure to wow your guests.

A Beautiful Mess

Put your old sweaters to good use and DIY a pom-pom hat for the chilly temps ahead. Make a stylish woven basket with spare paper. Or use random ingredients in your kitchen to craft the most scrumptious batch of s’mores you’ve ever had.

A Beautiful Mess

One great way to not burn through all your dough is to make your own gifts. Channel your inner crafter and knit, weave, sew and/or cook your gifts this year. Not only will you scratch your DIY itch, but you’ll have gifts that will really mean something to the people you give them to. There’s just one thing to note: homemade gifts ― the really nice ones ― take time. You should start now.
