Christmas Guide - Day 29: Hello fellow DIY fans, check out these awesome homemade gift ideas. And then.. Work it, ladies. 

So what if your wallet is a little bit emptier this year? It's about understanding the situation and, and, and finding creative ways to control it. We've been scanning through various DIY websites and blogs this season and have come across some awesome gift ideas. We also had some splendid DIY tips by some of the top DIY innovators. Today we devote to: Top DIY gift ideas!

Did you know you could make marvelous picture frames—with macaroni? We've been chatting to the author of The Greenhorn Knitter who kindly shared with us her tips on breathing life into tired, old decor.

Materials:
 
thrift store picture frame-$1
bag of farfalle pasta-$1.50
metallic gold spray paint-$6.99
glue gun

Glue pasta to the frame in a slanted pattern. This allows you to wedge the pasta together and cover more space.  If unpleasant gaps turn up, use broken pieces of the pasta to camoflauge the holes.

Then spray with a heavy coat of gold paint! et voila!

And whilst we're still pulling the super glue off our hands, how much joy is there to be found in making chocolate. Ultimately chocolate is IT.
