2012 Ultimate DIY Gift Guide

I received so much positive feedback from last year’s 2011 Ultimate DIY Gift Guide that I couldn’t resist compiling another collection. Here you’ll find images and links to 101 fantastic and inexpensive gift ideas from around the web. There’s truly something for everyone, and the best part is… everything is DO-IT-YOURSELF! I hope some of these ideas will inspire you and come in handy for the upcoming holidays. Don’t forget to pin the guide so you can revisit the list again later. Enjoy!
