Hey YOU. You there! The one who hasn’t finished their Christmas presents yet. The one who swore they were going to knit a sweater for every member of their family. The one who wanted to be that person who made personalized, super-cute handmade gifts but never actually got around to it because there’s a surprising amount of good television around today.
I mean, if these were the Joanie Loves Chachi days of television, you’d be golden. You’d have time to knit sweaters for your entire family. Even if you’re polygamists. As it turns out we’re in the House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Shameless era of television. Also there’s Gold Rush Alaska which I know you watch even if you don’t admit to it. So, there really isn’t a lot of time to be making grand gesture presents for everyone you know.
There is however time for making smaller gesture presents.
- Serving board.
- Grill scraper.
Still feel guilty about not having made the time to knit those sweaters? Don’t worry about it. Nobody likes them anyway. Besides, that’s what Benetton is for. I’m nothing if not full of outdated references today. Stick around and I might mention Andrew Dice Clay.
All of these DIYS are pretty inexpensive with most of them costing less than $10 and requiring no more than an hour or so to make. If you’re absolutely stuck on the homemade sweater, you can actually make one of those in about 5 – 10 minutes depending on how many tags are on it and how sharp your scissors are.
Have a good weekend and if you decide to give any of these DIYs a try and run into trouble, just shoot me an email and I’ll completely ignore you.
