This styrofoam wreath was $3.50 and it started out as one of those ribbon loop wreaths but I didn't have the time or tenacity to stick with that so this is what it ended up as. All the ribbon is from my stash.
These ornaments were so cheap to make especially if you have chipboard frames laying around. I got all the images for free off the internet.
I participated in an ornament swap and one of the members sent some beautiful napkins like the ones she had used on her ornaments. They inspired me to make these trivets out of tiles I had laying around for years. You can get tiles like these for a $1 at the home improvement stores.
The pics didn't turn out all that well, but hey.
What handmade gifts have you been tinkering on?
