This year, I am broke. Completely and utterly, broke. Also this year, I have been getting into crafts (Another thing that I never knew would happen!) I always thought that I was extremely 'un'artistic but it actually turns out that I don't have to be! SO! This Christmas, my Husband and I are going to be making our own gifts. I don't want to tell you exactly what they are just yet! But I can tell you that Mod Podge is my new best friend!
In this post I would like to give a shout out to a few blogs that I have stumbled upon that have given me fantastic ideas! They all have a fantastic array of DIY crafty projects that ANYONE can do!
The Hybrid Chick - I fell in love with these fabulous photo blocks by Julie Mom of 4

Light & Spoon - This is a VERY cool idea to make your own artwork using melted crayons

Chica and Jo have an idea that I also fell in love with. They have coasters made out of curling ribbon! I tried this one out and the end result was amazing! This is perfect for using up all your extra curling ribbon! I always have tons of the stuff left over at Christmas.

Over at Mommy Models, they have a tutorial on how to make your own photo canvas art! I bought a canvas print last year as a gift and they are really quite pricey! I wish I had seen this one last year!
Life in Grace has another great gift idea for kids! Homemade alphabet crayons! I will definitely be making these with my Son when he is older!

With that, I am off to find my X-acto Knife!
