We love making DIY gifts for Christmas, but learned that even making things can add up to a major expense. I thought by making handmade gifts last year that I would be saving a ton of money, and was I ever surprised to learn, when I totaled up my receipts, that I had spent almost as much making things as I would have to buy them. Now this surely does have to be the case, I think. This year, I went looking for some cheap DIY gifts, and was thrilled to find some awesome ideas that could be made on a budget. From cool dollar store crafts to easy ideas you can make from things you already have, we just love these incredible homemade presents. Check out the easy to follow step by step tutorials and get busy making!
