Though I can barely operate a hot glue gun without risking hospitalization, I come from a long line of crafty and handy people. So naturally, a lot of the gifts I've received over the years have been homemade and, on occasion, terrible. Some examples include: sweatshirts "jazzed" up by use of glitter pens and bedazzlers, a reindeer doorstop made out a sock and a soda liter filled with beans, several draft snakes, and not one, but two bat houses. But hey, it's the thought that counts and as an adult, I appreciate these gifts in their odd glory, granted I haven't saved too many of them.
Glorious Christmas Crafts has some cute Christmas craft ideas for non-grinchy people who posses the talent and the will. But since I can barely handle the task of wrapping the gifts I buy, I don't really care about those projects. Instead, I'm highlighting some of the more head-scratching gift ideas and decorations in the book. They are sure to make memorable if not appreciated holiday presents:
