Country Living

ShelterPop is at it again, this time with super easy holiday gifts you can make for less than the cost of a dinner for two. Ready for the round-up?:

1. Ribbon belts and bracelets from Martha Stewart Living would make a lovely gift for a gal pal in velvet but could also be a present for male friends if crafted from a masculine grosgrain ribbon. Approximate cost: $1.50 per belt.
2. Design*Sponge has an adorable excerpt from Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt: 25 Whimsical Sewing Projects posted--the cute as can be eyeglasses case make us want to buy the whole book full of ideas! Approximate cost: $5 for materials for three cases (more if you use wool felt)
3. Everyone likes a sweet, especially one that's homemade. Sunset magazine offers several ideas for candy gifts, including Maple-Walnut Fudge and Almond Toffee. Approximate cost: $12 for 3 lbs. of fudge or toffee
4. Country Living offers up a bevvy of D.I.Y. gift ideas in a Crafty Christmas Presents slideshow. We like two candle crafts: A tea cup candle and these adorable cinnamon candles. Approximate cost: $6 to $10 per candle
5. Brooke always has tons of affordable, crafty ideas on her blog Inchmark. We loved the simple, but sweet idea to turn cheap plastic photo books into personalized photo albums. Approximate cost: $3.50 per album.
