crafts, Holidays Handmade Christmas Gifts November 10, 2018 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! 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. 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! 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…. Tammy Please join me in visiting my Ten on the 10th friends, I can’t wait to see their ideas this month!

I have to say I love the napkin rings so much that I’m scrounging for more pins so that I can keep these and gift some others! lol Bad Santa that I am! Lisa November 10, 2018 at 2:18 pm Reply I love both these ideas. The cork key rings are an especially great ideas for the guy on your list! Unrelated: I’m impressed you craft and have gorgeous nails.😉 Tammy November 10, 2018 at 6:29 pm Reply Lisa I can’t believe I’m sharing this, but the nails are glue ons! KISS makes the best ones and they look really good. I only put them on for special occasions. Normally my nails are okay but between washing my hands so much and paint… they do take a beating! Carol@BlueskyatHome November 10, 2018 at 2:41 pm Reply Tammy , those napkin rings are just so darn cute. Love, love them. Will have to look at Hobby Lobby for the gold ones next week. Will also keep my eye out for old Christmas pins. The cork idea is awesome. I hate to admit how many of those I could make!! Tammy November 10, 2018 at 6:27 pm Reply LOL! I’m right there with you on the corks. They are a fun recycle for sure! Siana November 10, 2018 at 3:18 pm Reply Tammy will hot glue work on the napkin rings, is that expoxy? Tammy November 10, 2018 at 6:26 pm Reply Siana hot glue would work short term however I think it would peel off of the slick napkin ring. It would work long enough for a dinner party…. I think. lol Rita C at Panoply November 10, 2018 at 4:06 pm Reply You always have great crafted items. Both of those are good, but the napkin rings look great!!😍 Tammy November 10, 2018 at 6:25 pm Reply Rita that napkin rings are my favs too!
