Handmade Christmas Gifts
(Page 4 of 4)
• Goodie Basket: Spray paint an old basket, fill it with cookies and candies, and wrap a ribbon around it.
• Record Photo: Take a cracked or unwanted record (or a used CD) and print out an appropriate-sized photo. Cut the photo to fit, and glue it to the front of the record. Decoupage the entire surface and let dry completely. Add embellishments of your choice. Use a hot glue gun to glue a clothespin to the back so it can be displayed.
• Cutting Board Calendar: Use a thin wooden cutting board and paint it (or leave it natural). With a computer and printer, make up calendar pages for each month of the year, adding artwork for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and other special days. Print out the pages and punch a hole in each of the top corners. Drill two holes in the cutting board where the pages will be attached. Use two long brads to attach the pages to the cutting board.
