Handmade Christmas Gifts

Happy November! Can you believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner? With cooler weather, it puts me in the mood to make a few handmade Christmas gifts.

It’s also the perfect time for Ten on the 10th! I can’t wait to see what Christmas gift ideas my blog friends have this month!

napkin ring

I’m almost embarrassed to call this first project handmade.

Well, almost.

However, it is my favorite!

I found these napkin rings 50% off at Hobby Lobby.

vintage pins

Recently, I found a bucket full of vintage ear bobs and pins.

Wouldn’t these make the cutest Christmas napkin rings?

First, you need to remove the pin closer from the back of the pin.

Next, glue the pin onto the napkin ring with an epoxy glue.

So stinking easy!

I think 4 of these would make the perfect gift for hostesses, friends, neighbors or teachers.

Maybe, even as a treat for yourself!

So, how much did they cost?

Since I already had the glue and the pins were a find, each napkin ring cost $1.50 plus tax!

key chain

Next up, wine or beer cork keychains.

I was gifted this wine cork key chain and thought they would be a fun gift to make for my wine and beer enthusiast friends.

Step one, find a cork that you love.

Step two, place a 1/4 inch washer on one end of the cork.

Then, put a 3/16 washer on top of that.

Next, screw a eye screw into the end of the cork in the center of the washers.

Repeat this on the other end of the cork.

Finally, put a key ring through one of the eye screws on one end.

Now, you are ready to decorate your key chains!

As you can see, they are super easy and cute!

I hope that I inspired you to try making a few handmade Christmas gifts of your own!

Until next time….
