This year for christmas I am on a SUPER tight budget because I’m going to Australia for two weeks in a weeks time, after that I’m visiting a friend in Dunedin, after that I plan on moving out, and after that I start uni…so I have no money to spare. At. All.
Luckily the internet came to the rescue and I was able to make presents for my whole family with exactly $20.59 and a few things that were lying around the house :). CRAZY!!!
The first thing I made was rings out of copper wire and beads for my youngest sister…Learn how to make these here.
Second I got these cute little jars and filled them with quotes and funny movie lines for my mum to take to work and have a read of when she gets stressed out.
Third I melted crayons onto a canvas for my younger sister. I thought of somehow making a template of her name and pasting it onto the canvas temporarily while I melted the colours and then taking it off, but I ‘d already melted the crayons by then so it was too late. An idea for another day though.
Fourth and fifth I made a friendship bracelet and a regular bracelet for my youngest sister because she’s one of those people who wears old raggedy looking bracelets all the way up her arm.
The last one is a work in progress. It’s for my dad and it’s a cup painted with chalkboard paint. I bought some chalk and some tea to go with it. Fingers crossed it works out.
So yesss…hopefully my family still loves me after this…
