Rachel Faucett is the author of the well-loved DIY crafts blog Handmade Charlotte. When she's not working as a designer for major brands like Anthropologie, Coats & Clark, and Plaid Enterprises, you can find her crafting on her farm outside of Atlanta with her husband and five children. She has a weekly column on Babble Voices and also contributes regularly to the Martha Stewart Living Blog, MAKE, HGTV, and more.
Isn’t it always more fun when kids can give the gift of handmade rather than gifts bought with money their parents give them? Here’s some inspiration to keep your kids in the holiday spirit of giving and in a crafty headspace of creativity. The holidays produce a lot of crafts online, and these are some of the best we’ve seen.
