DIY Christmas gifts. 4 Weeks & 5 gift ideas, get crafting!

I am on the search for great (not LAME) DIY gifts to give my peeps this Christmas.  Too bad I didn't start thinking about this on June 1st.  I have compiled a list of a few things to make this holiday season.... with only 4 weeks to complete - heh I work better under pressure anyway.

#1. Homemade Granola in cute bags or jars.
Homemade Granola
Real Simple

 Better yet, wrap the granola in a cellophane bag & close.  Then stash it in an easy to make fabric bag like this....

#2. Homemade Bath salts
Finished Salt Scrub

#3. Buy thrift store 100% wool sweaters (under $5 usually). Felt in the washer, then turn felted sweater into a bag, mittens, ornament.... you name it.

#4. Recycled T-shirt necklace. You know you can find a t-shirt laying around you no longer wear.

#5. Fudge in muffin tins.

I actually did this last year and it worked fabulously.  Make an easy fudge like this one...
Pour into a muffin pan lined with foil cupcake liners.
After fudge has set, gift in cute cupcake boxes easily found at craft store.
