Homemade Gifts–Canvas Time

It’s that time of year again and I’m making sure I have all the gifts wrapped along with some homemade gifts for the grandparents.  Now let’s just hope that this year we won’t get any comments about homemade gifts vs bought gifts … lol.

First off we started with the  Keepsake Handprint Christmas Trees with the boys.  I found that Caden with the smaller hands turned out the best.  I bought 11x14 and I believe she used a larger size which allowed them more room.  But it still was super cute, I hope they like them.

Next on the list was the Keepsake Footprint Christmas Trees with the boys.  This one Cole’s larger feet turned out the best it filled the canvas the best.  I bought 12 x 12 and it was the right size to even add a little note and their names.

Hope you like and maybe want to make one for a loved one.  Do you make any homemade gifts for Christmas?  Do you like Homemade or store bought best?

  1. These are so cute! I wonder if I could get that many prints out of a 3.5 month old... : )

  2. Those are precious gifts and I am sure they will be appreciated.

    I used to knit a lot and make homemade gifts occasionally. Now I have just gotten a bit lazy.

  3. I'll take a homemade present anytime over a store bought gift! (Unless it's technology...I ain't gonna say no to that, right?)

  6. I think gifts that come from the heart are the most special. Your boys did good with their gifts.

  7. What a cute idea! The kids are actually giving their teachers indian popcorn that they grew this summer. They helped with every step of the process and I think their teachers will appreciate that :-)

  9. Those are so cute! I want to do the hand print Christmas tree, with all of our hands once the baby is born...so I guess it will be something for next year. :)

    As for home made vs store bought, it depends on what it is. :) But I do love home made gifts!
