Things I ALMOST made.
I bookmarked the following things as awesome Christmas gift craft ideas but ended up not making them. These are all pretty awesome, though, so if you're looking for some sweet homemade gift ideas for any upcoming occasion, you'll want to check them out:
I did make some more frugal gifts that I wasn't able to take pictures of, but still turned out awesome including:
Lavender & Bergamot VinegarInexpensive and easy to make. Just cram washed flowers and leaves from edible plants and herbs into a quart size canning jar and cover in vinegar. Let sit in a cool dark place for 4 weeks, agitating every few days. Pour vinegar through a filter (to catch sediment and plant parts) into a nice bottle and label.
Cinnamon Honey ButterI used the recipe from Tidy Mom that I saw this on the 12 days of Handmade Christmas on the Life in Grace blog. It. Is. Awesome. It turns out about the consistency of cookie dough and is so tasty, you could eat spoonfuls of it if you didn't stop to remember that eating spoonfuls of butter probably isn't the healthiest idea.
