11 Handmade Gifts You Can Make In An Afternoon

I exchange handmade gifts every year with my siblings, often using the occasion to learn a new skill. There are a number of handmade gifts you can make in an afternoon. One is felted soap. Another DIY project is a wood bead garland in the shape of a heart, snowflake or tree. A hand-stitched map of a special location is another possibility. Handmade bottle stoppers can be made in about 15 minutes and wood block name letters in an hour. You can add monograms to pillows or signs, add hand-stitching to a vintage tray from a thrift store, or add pom poms to a throw pillow. Also consider writing a recipe onto a flour towel. You can even make your own pillow from linen scraps.

Key Takeaways:

  • Take a map of a special place, then hand-stitch a heart around it and frame it.
  • Both signs and pillows can be monogrammed and given as gifts.
  • Use pieces of molding and chipboard letters to make wood block letters.
