There are less than four days until Christmas, and many people out there still haven't finished up their Christmas shopping. While some of you may be trying to avoid the mall, others of you are house bound thanks to Mother Nature. But before you stress out too much that those gifts aren't going to make their way under the tree, don't forget that you can make gifts yourself--even if you aren't a creative person! Here are ten do-it-yourself gifts that can be customized to suit the recipient and can be made using many items that you already have hanging around the house. While you may need to take a quick trip to the craft store for some of them, there is no mall involved in these gifts, and you can put them together while sitting by the fire, watching your favorite holiday movies, and with the kids playing at your feet.

Photo Transfer on Canvas

Everyone has a favorite photo from the past year that you'd like to share with a loved one, and photos on canvas are all the rage, although they can be quite expensive. Using tissue paper and your computer printer, you can create a custom canvas using the tutorial from Crystal at Little Bit Funky that is sure to be a cherished gift. If you can't get to the craft store to buy a canvas, it would work on a piece of wood or other solid surface you might have laying around the house as well.
