The past two years I have tried to steer my Christmas present purchases away from traditional gifts and more towards handmade gifts. I’m lucky enough to be (semi) creative and personally prefer giving someone a gift I made rather than one I bought. Luckily, my family actually likes getting homemade gifts (because there are definitely people who do not!). We’re finally all old enough to ask for single, meaningful/useful gifts instead of huge amounts of presents on Christmas. I still think we could away with gifts altogether, but some of my family might have a freak attack if we do that! Haha. Giving people things is just what they do!
Anyway, I made a gift for my sister, and her (now) husband last Christmas, and I thought I would share the tutorial with you today! This gift was an idea she had pinned on Pinterest as a decoration for the wine country wedding. I loved it as soon as I saw it, and thought…well I can make that! There is a similar tutorial for the original post here. The best part about this project is that you don’t have to be super crafty to make it. It’s more like tracing letters the computer printed—it does take a bit of time, but it looks awesome! I wanted to share a few things I learned along the way that might be helpful.
