Frugal DIY Gift Ideas (That People Might Actually Want)

All right, kids!  It's almost that time of year, so if you have any pie-in-the-sky plans to make Christmas gifts, you'd better make plans to actually get things done!  I think we have all had enough of lighted potpourri jars and crocheted tissue box holders, am I right??  I have put together a list for you of some links that I have hoarded collected over the past few years of DIY gift ideas that I think people will actually like receiving.  The skill level on most of these is beginner and the cost for each is quite low. 

*A note on the chocolate chip cookies and the homemade Oreos- they are both really, really good and worth your time if you're into food gifts.
