Oh That's Pinteresting... A Handmade Christmas

I am kicking of my week of A Handmade Christmas here on the blog today with some inspiring pins from Pinterest.

This week I am hoping to share at least one handmade Christmas idea with you every day. I will be posting a linky on Saturday also so you can link up any Handmade Christmas gifts or decorations you have made.

If you have been wanting to try your hand at making some handmade gifts or decorations but have no idea where to start here are just a few ideas you could try.

And here is one of my tutoruals for making a knotted fabric necklace. It is super easy and would make a great gift!





Or maybe even this cushion I made a few months back for a craft swap, it looks like a lot of work, but it really wasn't.
