So, guess how many gifts I made for my children's Christmas this year!
Are you ready?
ZERO. Edit: One (duh).
But I did manage a couple little cute gifties for the nieces and nephew.
I used this awesome idea from Lil Blue Boo to make a wooden matching game.
The transfer method uses a laser printout and some natural orange cleaner. I was pretty sick of the smell of the cleaner by the end, but it worked!
A few are smudged, but I'm pretty happy with it. And it opens up all kinds of other ideas...
As a bonus, I discovered that after you dye these is the perfect time to clean your microwave! Seriously, you are spending minutes microwaving water + vinegar + koolaid (citric acid!). So there you go.
My daughter made her a better present, though. Last time she was at our house, she loved one of my daughter's dolls (this one). So the girl decided to make a Black Apple doll for her cousin. Grandma helped her, so I had nothing to do with it, even.
How did you do in the handmade gift department this year?
