I Die for DIY

My sister and I have become very into DIY projects. We scour do-it-yourself blogs for different ideas on how to look cute without spending too much money…I mean, who doesn’t love saving some money? Exactly.

We already tried this and found it to be a great success. I feel like this season’s Christmas gifts will include quite a few homemade gifts, and here are a few I’d like to try on a chilly winter weekend (live in NYC? Pick up this Living Social deal at Mood Fabrics for November 22nd before you get started!):

    I’m always inspired by DIY crafts (especially thanks to Pinterest now), but I never actually do them. It’s never as easy as they say it is!

      Hi Mariam! I can see that being the case. However, as my sister (Angela) pointed out in her comment above, the PS: I Made This… ones are pretty easy. The other ones I have listed here look pretty simple, too, so you should give them a try! ;)

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
