DIY Christmas Presents

Here are some things that I have made that make great gifts.  Since Christmas is coming up, I would like to share the ideas.  I'm really not that crafty and have minimal sewing skills, so if I could make these you really could too.  Where possible, I've tried to include a link to a tutorial.

2. Seashell Pillar Candles

3.  Sand and Seashell Candle Holders

4. Fabric Car Play Mat
Made with fabric markers and black acrylic paint.
I drew the buildings on white fabric, cut them with a zig-zag scissors and sewed them on.
This present definitely gets used the most of any I've made.

7. Silhouette Candle Holders
Decoupage white fabric around a glass candle holder.
Print out profile pictures on cardstock.
Cut out the person and paint the picture black.
Decoupage the silhouette onto the fabric.
Add a few more layers of decoupage to seal everything.

Made similarly to the candle holders, but I decoupaged them onto ceramic ornaments.

Like the one made here.

Sew a hair tie on one end and a button on the other.
