Money Saving Tips For Holiday Gifts

Tip #3 - Make-over something you already have at home. Look through your closets and other storage areas to find items you aren't using anymore. Get creative and turn them into gifts everyone on your list would love!

Here are a few thoughts to get you started - 

     - A fresh coat of spray paint can make an old picture frame "new" again.
     - Some ribbon and a cute flower can dress up a shirt or bag.
     - Use some cute stencils and bright colored paint to turn that old bookshelf into a great playroom storage shelf.
     - Old glass jars can be dressed up with ribbon to create darling candle holders.
     - Create a unique pillow by sewing the openings of a smaller T-shirt closed and stuffing it. My 10-year-old daughter would love it!

There are plenty more ideas on the internet I'm sure. Let your creative juices flow and you'll be able to come up with something to do for everyone - but you'll have to get started early so you have time to finish your projects.
