Are you already getting stressed out about holiday shopping — because you are worried about the cost of gifts, or because you can’t think of a gift for everyone on your list?

Don’t worry – there are so many gifts you can make yourself!

This is your opportunity to get creative and make affordable DIY holiday gifts.

You don’t have to be an artist to make any of these gifts:

I recently had the opportunity to interview the editor of Paper & Stitch, Brittni Mehlhoff.

Paper & Stitch is a modern lifestyle blog established in 2008 that focuses on DIY projects, recipes, home decor, style, beauty, and more.

She offers a lot of DIY recommendations and tips to get through the holiday season without breaking the bank.

I asked Brittni a few questions about DIY projects, and she answered them in this video, plus she shows us how to make a cute DIY canvas clutch.

Brittni also created this fun gallery wall in the shape of a Christmas tree:

With Command Strips, this tree can be just temporary for the holidays — without damaging your wall.

If you decide to make your own clutch, be sure to visit for 50% off canvas prints now through November 30!

How often do you give away DIY gifts?

Hi Dagmar, thanks for the the brilliant ideas. I could just kick myself after looking through your list. I did some declutterring earlier this year and donated 12 vintage jello molds to Goodwill! RATS!!!

Thanks for sharing, Lynn

Oh, no! You could use ramekins as well, I guess :)
