25+ Homemade Holiday Gift Projects To Start Right Now

25 Homemade Holiday Gift  Projects to Start Right Now | www.therisingspoon.com

One of my favorite things to do once the holiday season hits is make homemade gifts. Sometimes I plan ahead if the project takes longer, but mostly I start on handmade gifts after Thanksgiving.

And I ALWAYS choose projects that are utilitarian in nature. Nothing's worse than giving a loved one or friend a present that they'll never use. Especially random plastic thing-a-ma-jiggers. What a waste! 

Which is why I rounded up some quality DIY gift projects for you guys to make this holiday season. 

These homemade gifts are all: 
  • no-sew (for those of us without a sewing machine or stitching talent)
  • budget friendly (YAY!)
  • non-toxic (double YAY!)
So pick a few that catch your eye, gather the necessary materials (I've included some resources at the bottom) and get crafting, foodies!
