Be Green, Save Green, DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

Countdown to Christmas – 12 Days! Are you ready?

I was watching the news last night and it showed a family who had been robbed, all their Christmas gifts had been stolen from under their tree. They were, with right, devastated. I turned and looked at my husband and said, well they could come take the gifts from under our tree! Because we have none! We both laughed because we seriously have not bought any Christmas gifts yet.

I have taken the homemade challenge and so I have all these great ideas of things I can make but haven’t seemed to find any time to make them. I had hoped to make my daughters some pajama pants, mittens and scarves. I have started a project or two but not finished any of them as of yet.

Well today I thought I would share some of my DIY craft findings so you can be green and save some green.
