Spread holiday cheer with these creative, sweet and simple handmade gifts for friends. Make your own gift toppers to humble the gift package. A paper Straw Christmas tree; use a pencil to draw a triangle shape, cut paper straws , adhere with hot-glue and weave a piece of string down the length of tree and adhere it with dots along the way. Or make a yarn pom-pom; twirl yarn around four fingers 50 times, cut it and slide loop off fingers, making sure that it doesn’t unravel and cinch at middle with yarn.
Make a snow globe cookie jar using a fine-tipped brush to paint small white dots on the outside of the jar and fill bottom of the jar with snowball cookies, place small plastic trinkets inside for a snow globe-inspires vignette. Don’t forget to tie gift tag to jar with ribbon. Another great ideas is take a plain pillow and simply wrapping it like a present; add a sprig of greenery of a festive ornament for an extra bit of flourish.
