I made my sister a zany fabric doll with pink hair and purple legs.

Congrats! You've won the contest. Expect an email shortly!

Mason jar gifts! They're super easy to make, cute, delicious (when you make recipes), and personal. Not to mention they're a lot cheaper to make than you might think and you can make a bunch at once!

I'll definitely be making some of the gift tags for my presents this year! They're so cute!

My cousins, brother, and all of the significant others and I agreed to spend $5 or less per person. This way, everybody can still give everyone a thoughtful little gift without going broke. I'm also making a bunch of gifts this year, most of them from supplies I already had!

The way I save money during the holidays is to craft a lot of my gifts and then supplement them with smaller gifts that I buy.

I've tried my best to edit my gift list this year, so I'm focusing on quality instead of quantity when it comes to buying presents for loved ones.

Instead of buying gifts for everyone, my family does a Secret Santa gift exchange. You'll spend less money shopping for presents, and it's a fun family tradition!

My mom saves up all her cash back savings from her credit cards and then uses the money for Christmas shopping!

Something that's not corny

Buying gifts during the holidays can get pretty expensive, so these ideas will really help me save money when the winter rolls around!

Yes, we agree! it's so helpful to have all these options to choose from. Have fun crafting! - Editor of AllFreeChristmasCrafts

So so cute!

Does anyone have directions on how to make an angel from a phone book?
