Homemade Christmas

Here is a tile necklace I made as another cousin gift. I made a couple of these and liked the outcome.

Here is a ruffle scarf I made out of flannel. I love the ruffles, I just wish the purple on the body of the scarf could have been more vibrant. When I finished, it didn't seem to be age appropriate, but I was out of time. Next time I will do it out of a knit fabric so that it has more flow and less stiffness. I think it would be better to have style rather than warmth.

These picture frames were so easy and cheap. The total cost would have been $1 for the frame, but I had everything on hand. I like the fact that you can make them match any room, or individual style. I also love the purple paper from a line by Basic Grey, which has been discontinued, sad:(

I had everything on hand for the gifts except for the flannel, which was on sale at Joann's. So I spent about $5 for everything here.
