Top 5 Thursday: DIY Gift Ideas

My side of the family has a strict $5 per person limit on Christmas gifts. (you can read more about our family tradition here) This works out well since that's about all a youth pastor salary covers anyway. Year after year, I've begun to run out of ideas, so nowadays, I'm always on the hunt for simple or beautiful crafts and recipes.

Here's a little round-up of some inexpensive tutorials for gifts you could make in plenty of time for this holiday season!

Adorable tea towels

Personalized wooden kitchen utensils

Bacon and caramelized onion jam? Yes, please! We'll be cooking up a big batch of this for some coworkers--and, of course, saving a jar for ourselves! 

Another easy batch bake: Caramel Apple Butter

If you're feeling more adventurous, try this Cordless Drill Storage and Charging Station

Whether you choose to make these or something else, let me know! I'd love to see your handiwork!
