SHOW & TELL: Homemade Gift Round Up

Homemade Gift Round Up  via carolynshomework.comIn a few days Halloween will be behind us and we’ll need to turn our attention to the major holidays that are around the corner. I’ve been thinking about some homemade gift ideas and thought I’d share some things that I found. None of these gifts take major crafting, cooking or sewing skills. I think they’d all be pretty easy to create but would make a big impact. I love homemade gifts and can’t wait to start creating some of these.
