This is an amazing list and something I”ll definitely be referring back to… and not just for Christmas either! Thanks for including my post on Manly Essential Oil Beard Oil Blends!

I like the look of a lot of these, but the wooden candle holders are really cute and unique. It’s fun how they are just the flat planks put together to be crosses. My sister really like making wooden craft projects like this, I should show it to her.
Some excellent ideas for the many teachers/coaches in our lives.
Gosh! what a comprehensive list. Cannot thank you enough Crystal. I like the flower brooch. Brilliant.. I really wanna try to make one for me, crocheting a couple of pillows currently but will make it once i will finish that. Thanks for that idea, however i know it doesn’t need sewing but i would like to make a crochet brooch. Thanks again for this post. I will share it on my social channels.

I just wanted to give a heads up that some of the links don’t work anymore, the year of dates gives domain error, and the DIY kitchen tablet seems like a private blog.
