Fabulous and Easy DIY Gifts to Make for Family and Friends at Christmas

EASY DIY Gifts to Make for Christmas

It's time to start thinking about what glorious gifts we're going to make this year for Christmas gifts. I LOVE making things and I always make stuff to give away at Christmastime. I'm a little late this year, starting in November but there is still plenty of time...

Let's remember our friends, the birds, this gift giving time. I personally love getting bird feeders, suet feeders, squirrel feeders (lots of fun).

Here's a thistle feeder made from a Coca Cola bottle. Easy peasy. You could include a bag of thistle food, also, as part of the gift. This attracts goldfinches and house finches.
