I made a few different sets of handmade ornaments this year, the first was a state-of-Oregon ornament and the idea came from this blog.
All of the my young girl nieces (and Phoebe) got a glittery tutu for themselves and a matching one for their doll. Each set was a different color. Phoebe has loved hers.
My mom got a beach bag as she spends a lot of time in Florida
And, my favorite gifts were the coaster sets I made. These are so fun! I will say that it does take a bit of practice to get them right.... I definitely had quite a few do-overs during the process. You can find instructions here. I used recycled tiles from our local building re-use center. I made some nature-inspired tiles and also made a bunch with pictures of my kiddos on them. Apparently I didn't take any pictures of those before I sent them off. Oh well.
There were also lots of cowls, more hats, and some pajama pants for the kids. I just never got around to taking any pictures of them. I am sure you know how it goes...
How did your handmade gifts go this year?
