Homemade Christmas Gifts~Presented by Oh! My Heartsie

Adorable homemade Christmas gifts that even the littlest hands can craft. We have an assortment of last-minute Christmas gifts. Don't forget you'll need some unique gift wrapping ideas, too!

Felting a sweater is a great way to get more life out of a favorite top that's outgrown or damaged. Use your felted sweater to make a sleeve for a hot to-go drink, or create one of our cozy bags. For the tightest and strongest felt, use a sweater that's at least 90 percent wool. Wash it in hot water (along with a few pairs of jeans or towels for extra friction) and dry it on high heat. Repeat, if necessary, until the fabric's weave is tight enough to be cut without fraying.

A hybrid between a gift bag and a box, this sturdy holiday packaging can be used over and over again.
  • Cereal boxes
  • Gift wrap
  • Glue stick or tape
  • Hole punch
  • Colored ribbons
