It’s Christmas Eve. You’ve just learned that your kind-of-sort-of-friend has a gift she’ll be bringing over tonight or tomorrow. Or suddenly you realize that you have several gifts for your fun and easy niece but too little for your nephew for him to consider the deal fair. Whatever the case may be, it happens. And the stores leading up to the big day are horrendous so to imagine them on Christmas Eve just gives me a panic attack. Some of these DIY’s can be done with junk you already have laying around. Others may require some accessories. But dashing to a craft store has so much less of a stress factor than squeezing through the crowded automatic doors of a department store.
