Some Homemade Gifts

I'm a little late posting links to craft instructions this year, so I'll keep them small and simple. It's always nice to have a few ideas that can be made up quickly.

These key chains would make a nice stocking stuffer if you like to sew.

Felt Keychains (Vilten Sleutelhangers), set 4


You can find instructions for other key chains and key fobs here and here..

It's not exactly a stocking stuffer, but this homemade memory game looks interesting.

This Popsicle stick bracelet is a bit more work, but cute.

Here's the link to the instructions.

Or...marble magnets? Super easy but fun and you can easily make them in any design you like.

Gumball magnets!

There are instructions here and here

Last of all, how about decorating or personalizing a clipboard? With a few simple supplies (a clipboard, some Mod Podge or an equivalent and some pretty paper) you can turn a plain clipboard into something special.

I like the key rings. I've been busy covering coat hangers & crocheting around wash cloths. I do like useful things.

I like useful things, too. Hence, the key rings and clipboards. I can never seem to have enough key chains, since mine are always breaking or just beginning to look icky (probably because I carry my keys in my pocket).
