15 Handmade Gifts for Under $10

I create all year but some projects are just perfect this time of year...

So I wanted to do a round up of great handmade gift ideas that can be made for under $10.

Some are actually under $5.

Get Ready...

Get Set...


  First up, is a Shabby Chic Wind Chime from goodies you already have laying about...

Transform a candlestick into this great girly accent for your favorite girl.

My daughter and I spent about a month making mosaics.

Her coasters are easy and inexpensive to make for gifts.

I covered recycled bottles to make neat garden accents.

I had the marbles on hand but you can use whatever you have a bunch of.

Tutorials here, here, and here.

An old glass bowl and vase become a crystal mushroom for the garden is mere minutes.

 Strips from an old sheet become a shabby chic bracelet in minutes...

A cardboard cone from the craft store and a pack of coffee filters become this fun Christmas tree decoration.

Another cone gets a makeover with a burlap sack...

These Rose Bangles actually started as white sheets that we dyed beachy colors.

You could make your own with any fabric you have on hand.

Some coffee filters and sheets torn into strips become a shabby banner.

Transform plastic bangles into chic accessories in minutes with washi tape.

Transform coffee filters into chic home decor....

You can use coffee to dye them.

Or coffee and RIT dye to achieve the look you want.

An old book and one coffee filter rose makes a beautiful gift that will be perfect for someone on your gift list.

 Use some old sheet music and some scraps to make a cute banner as a gift.

Nestle it all in a mason jar and you are ready to go.

Speaking of Mason jars...

This simple craft comes together in minutes.

Have a roll of burlap ribbon left over from a project?

Use it to create these fabulous burlap roses in a mason jar.

Last but not least, use a few cinnamon sticks and some twine to create some sweet Christmas tree ornaments or package toppers.

I hope you found a couple of ideas you can try for handmade gifts this Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by...

Linking up with these great blogs...
