Homemade Christmas Gifts for Grandparents

If you are looking for a special gift to give your parents from the kids, then handmade is definitely the way to go. You can make multiple of these gifts too so that other relatives or teachers can get them.

Many of these gifts can be made with items already in the home. For example, you can make hand-print salt dough ornaments with flour from the cupboard. Check out these amazing ideas for inspiration.

Hand and Foot Print Art

Made with canvases from the Dollarstore, acrylic paints, gems, and little bells from the Dollarstore. I love how they turned out, so I did one panel for each of my three kids.

Scrabble Tile Art

Scrabble tiles with names of their children and spouses, along with their children, is such a unique and cute gift. The scrapbook frame was purchased at Hobby Lobby; add some hot glue and scrabble tiles (purchased in bulk on Amazon, and you are good to go!)

Salt Dough Ornaments

These adorable ornaments are sure to look amazing on your grandparents' trees! To make these, I used salt dough.

The dough recipe is 1 cup salt, 2 cups flour, and 1 cup of water. From there, bake at 250 for 2 hours, and let cool overnight. You can then paint them and add a string to make an ornament.
