31 Days: Day 29 - Homemade Gifts (Including Cool Ideas!)

If this is your first visit I welcome you to my little corner of the world!  You might want to start at the introduction of this series.  It explains what 31 Days of Change is, and has links to each day's post as they occur.  Just click on the 31 Days to Slash Your Budget Painlessly button at the top of my sidebar on the right.

Have you discovered Pinterest yet? It is one of the top three sites I visit when I log onto my computer everyday. Although if you are not careful, you can waste hours browsing Pinterest, it is also a great tool and an excellent source for homemade gift ideas.  Here are some ideas I've found:


Cute Tear-off Grocery List for Mom


Hershey Kisses in a Whisk for the Awesome Baker



Flavored Sugar for the Awesome Cook




Sweet Rosebud Headband for a Sweet Little Girl




Scrapbook Covered Coasters for the Perfect Hostess



Ruffled T-shirt Dress for the Young Fashion Diva


Stenciled Onsie for Baby



Sisal Bowl Filled with Fruit for Anyone




DIY Photo Canvas for Dad




Log Carrier for Dad




Heating Pad for Grandpa or Grandma




Leather Bracelet from a Belt for Teenager





Decorated Flip Flops for any Female




Vinyl Decorated Candle for Mom




Fabric Covered Magnetic Board for Grandma




Although we will still buy many of our Christmas gifts this year, I've decided to make at least one item for everyone on our list. It will save about $120 of our Christmas budget this year.   

If you are benefiting from this series, I’d love it if you would grab my button from the top of my sidebar.  I will be back with another money saving tip tomorrow.  I will keep up a running tally of my savings at the bottom of each new post. Just scroll down to the bottom to see.  Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll be back!

My tally so far:
$4899.82/year
$408.32/month
