Handmade Christmas: Dish Cloths and Cork Hot Pads
Each year around Thanksgiving, I love to gift each one of the tutors in our CC Community with something for Christmas! I'm always on the lookout for thrifty and practical ideas to give!
This year, I got some cute Chevron tablet covers on a major clearance from Dayspring and they support Mercy House in Africa! I wanted to put a couple of little things with it and found these cork rounds for 80% off at Michael's one day this summer.
I printed off each last name initial in a large font and cut it out with an x-acto knife. Then I used that as a stencil for painting in the letter. It took me about an hour to make all seven!
I've also really been enjoying crochet lately and dish cloths are my favorite because they don't take too long and everyone needs them!
What simple, thrifty, homemade gifts do you like to give?
