CrazySexyCrafty: Christmas Gifts

What? You mean you haven’t started making any of your gifts yet? Well, it’s time to get crackin’. Seriously, blink and it will be Christmas Eve!

Need some ideas? Here’s a few that I like that are fairly easy. They don’t take more than a few hours, if you’ve already got the DIY bug. Hopefully you won’t need to buy any special equipment to make any of these gifts. The point is to use what you have (or can get fairly cheaply) to make something great.

For people:

Love this laptop sleeve by Carly J. Cais


This bag is easy to make with old denim and a thrifted leather coat. From between the lines.


Jewelry from hardware! Yes! Also check out Hanna Rogge’s great book Hardwear: Jewelry from a Toolbox.

This neckwarmer is just one of the many things Maegan makes. She has a ton of other simple DIY fashion projects.

T-shirt necklaces are easy, quick and super cool. This tutorial even has a video.

For pets:

I made these out of an old towel and a few old t-shirts and my critters just love them! I posted the tute here.


I think Martha Stewart’s site has some of the best pet projects on the web. There’s cool gift ideas for dogs and cats. There’s enough crafts to keep you and your pets busy for a while.

I’m sure that’s not all. Share some of the other ideas for gifts that you like.
