Making handmade gifts for Christmas can be a very fine experience, if you are well aware of the technique of making attractive gifts. Given below are some ideas, which can prove to be better gifts than the store-bought ones.
To make this gift, you will need materials like a glue, scissors, a tape, a big poster board which is green, a relatively small yellow poster board, a ribbon, paper clips made of plastic and a hole punch.
Firstly, you have to cut a star shape from the yellow poster board and a triangular shape from the bigger green poster board. The next step is to use the glue which you have, to stick the star on the green colored triangular shape, which has been cut and at the same time, you should fix the paper clips on the triangle. A Christmas tree will be formed when you are done with these first two steps. Now, make a hole at the point, where the star and the tree meet each other and pass a ribbon through the hole and than tie it firmly with a knot.
Craft Stick Trinket Box
The material you will be needing for making the craft stick trinket box include craft sticks, glue, trinkets and seasonal decorations.
Now, let us understand the easy procedure of making the craft stick trinket box. The first step involved in this preparation is set four inches apart, the two of the craft sticks you have and then glue, at least ten sticks across them. The second step to follow now is to start the gluing work on the craft sticks for the walls till they become as high as you would have loved them to be. This gluing can be done once you have flipped over the base. The third step is to make the lid which is removable by setting two sticks along with the two wall sticks, which are at the end and then adding a line of glue along each one of them. The fourth and the last step is to lay ten sticks of craft across them. The use of the trinkets and the seasonal decorations is for personalizing the gift.
Making beautiful paintings by using your painting skills to the fullest can be one of the nice gifts. You can draw various forms of natural landscapes such as oceans, forests, animals, etc. and color them in attractive water colors, which would suit them well. You can also get your picture laminated, once you have finished it completely and then gift it by wrapping it up in a good gift pack. If you have put in a lot of effort in the paintings, you can be sure that the painting will be definitely liked by the person to whom you give them to.
People will appreciate it more if you give handmade cards instead of the readily available ones. By using sketch pens, crayons, water colors, you can make cards with attractive designs and shapes. Card making can be a fantastic group activity which you can do with your close friends. Lastly, you need to ensure that the cards reach your people before the big Christmas day.
Christmas gift baskets are also a good idea. Thus, we conclude that the handmade gifts are not difficult and time-consuming to make. These gifts given by you will stay in the memory of the people close to you for a long time.
