Simple Handmade Gifts – Part Five

At the beginning of last December I started looking around the web for Christmas gift ideas that were SIMPLE, HANDMADE, INEXPENSIVE, and ADORABLE! 🙂 Is that really too much to ask?? I don’t think so! As a matter of fact I KNOW it’s not asking too much because I ended up doing 4 different “Simple Handmade Gifts” posts that month and people were clamoring for more! There are just a LOT of super talented people out there with really GREAT ideas!

So this year I’m starting a little earlier because even though I would classify each of these gift ideas as “simple”, if you’re like me Christmas seems to come faster and faster every year!

So I present to you….Simple Handmade Gifts – Part Five…curated from across the world wide web. Enjoy!

(Note: Not ALL of the gift IDEAS listed are tutorials. Some even link to Etsy shops or places where you can purchase the item. But I included them if I thought they were a simple enough idea to easily replicate. Also, some are not 100% “handmade”, but again, if they were SIMPLE ideas and had some personalization to them, they were included.)
