I can hardly believe that we are just over a week away from Christmas…where did the last month go? If you’re like me, no matter how much proactive planning and organizing you do, Christmas always comes too quickly. The next week will be a whirlwind of errands, parties, baking, cleaning, last minute gift-making and wrapping. I’m tired just thinking about it!
I’ve really enjoyed putting together these round up posts each week for My Handmade Christmas: Inspiration for the Season! In case you missed any of them, here’s a list of the Friday posts I’ve put together over the past two months:
Post #1: 10 Handmade Christmas Gifts to Start NOW!
Post #2: 25 Handmade Christmas Gifts for Men
Post #3: 30 Christmas Gifts in a Jar
Post #4: 25 Neighbor Gift Ideas with Free Printable Tags
Post #5: 15 Cute & Clever Ways to Package Christmas Treats
Post #6: 15 Brown Paper Wrapping Ideas for Christmas
Post #7: 175 FREE Printable Gift Tags
Post #8: 10 Unique Gift Card Wrapping Ideas
For our last post in the series, I thought it would be appropriate to bring you a great list of 10 last minute handmade gift ideas. Even if you haven’t started yet, it’s still possible for you to crank out small handmade or semi-handmade gifts for your entire gift list! I think the secret to making handmade Christmas gifts in a time crunch is to find ideas that you can make multiples of for your list with slight variations so you can do them all at one time. Hopefully these great ideas will inspire you!
As always, feel free to pin the collage graphic at the top of this post…but if you’d like to pin individual project ideas, be sure to click through to each blog and pin from the original source. Thank you!
