I remember making Christmas decorations when I was a child. we would gather things like cotton bolls, sweet gum balls and pine cones. My mother would work her magic and we made pretty decorations for our tree, and they were all made with what we found here on the farm. 

We dipped sweet gum balls in this wonderful gray paint that was always here. Now that I am grown up I realize that this paint is the roof paint for all the tin roofs here on the farm.

I still love making gifts for my friends, especially for the holidays. And I like getting homemade presents. I have gathered some fun Do-It-Yourself crafts and gifts that you can make for holidays. I hope you enjoy making and giving these unique gifts.
