DIY Christmas Gifts: Kid Friendly

A few weeks ago I attended a Christmas Tea at church as part of a girls youth group for grades 1-8.  The annual gift exchange is a highly anticipated event, and the gifts the girls make are always outstanding! This year there was a great mixture of stress-free projects. I forgot to bring my camera to the event, so I found links with tutorials instead!

Towel Angel (tutorial here)

Yarn Wreath (tutorial here)

Readymade Scrapbook (I didn't find a tutorial for this one. But the idea is to decorate scrapbook pages and leave room for the receiver to put in their own photos. Pic found here)

Fabric Ornament (tutorial here)

Scrap Paper Ornament Framed Art (tutorial here)

Quite frankly, you don't have to be a 'kid' to enjoy making or receiving these gifts. And they can all be easily personalized for the receiver just in choice of color and pattern. These five projects barely scratch the surface of simple  DIY gifts, its exciting to see that this style of gifting is still going strong.
 Do you have a go-to DIY gift?
