9 Last-Minute, Stylish DIY Gifts

December has really gotten away on me and with less than a week now until Christmas — time is of the essence.  I don’t know about you, but I still have a bit of a list to get through and was hoping to do a few last minute DIYs for some of them.  I’ve been bookmarking ideas and inspiration and thought some of you may be interested.  I think there’s something for everyone on this list (adult-wise) and they’re all do-able in an afternoon.  Click below to see!
