Making homemade holiday presents can become a family tradition, where the family gets together and makes ornaments for the tree, cards and gift tags to attach to holiday gifts, as well as personalized gifts for their loved ones.
As part of homemade holiday gift ideas, making tree ornaments is probably the most exciting activity to do during the holidays, especially if all the kids join in and have fun decorating with all sorts of craft trinkets.
You can make glittering balls special by writing a person's name on the ball with a glitter glue pen, or even glue a photo of the person on the ball for that added touch. Holiday trees cut from stiff card stock and decorated with glitter and cotton wool for a snow capped look will make a perfect tree decoration if tied on to the branches with some ribbon. Cotton balls come in very handy when making snow men - just glue two cotton balls on top of each other, add a hat and a face, then hang it on the tree with gold braid.
Probably the best part of a holiday tree is the star that glitters and sparkles on the top. This is easy to make out of a piece of polystyrene, which you can cut into a star shape with hot wire. Use ordinary wood glue to cover the surface, and then paste sequins and some silver and gold glitter all over the surface. Add a string of lights around the edge of the star to add some extra sparkle.
Photographs make perfect homemade holiday gift ideas, especially if they come framed in a homemade frame and decorated with some holiday craft trinkets. You can buy a wooden frame and spray paint it red, green or gold, and then write the person's name on the top with a glitter pen to personalize it.
Making your own frame out of heavy card stock is also easy and is a fine homemade holiday gift idea - just cut the card stock slightly bigger than the photograph and then, using your craft knife, cut a hole in the center. Use ordinary glue to paste the photograph onto the back of the frame, and then decorate it with colored markers and pens. Use an ordinary stick which you glue onto the back of the photograph at an angle to hold it up.
If you need more homemade holiday gift ideas, how about considering making your own videos? Homemade videos and DVDs can now be combined into a full length DVD quite easily on your home PC. This makes a great gift that everyone can watch often and also helps to save and preserve precious memories in a modern easy to use format. Make your own inside cover for the DVD with a holiday poem and wishes, then wrap it all up in a cheerful colored piece of wrapping with a big bow.
All these presents are so easy to make at home that you will never go holiday shopping again. Have fun exploring these homemade holiday gift ideas!
