Handcrafted Gifts

Homemade gifts are a great way for us to show our loved ones that we care. Sometimes, however, we run out of ideas – or we want to try something new. Here is a list of recommended reads for you crafty adults to browse through for an abundance of DIY projects to use as presents.
 

Are you feeling creative and know what you want to make? Our booklist includes instructions for  soap crafting, candy making, knitting projects, candle making, and paper crafts.
 

Looking for inspiration? Check out the booklist for leatherworking, steampunk crafts, handmade journals, wood carving, and more.
 

Perhaps you want to use your creativity but don’t want to craft alone – MPHPL has four crafting events in December: DIY Candles at Harris on Dec 2, Cupcakes & Canvas at Harris on Dec 7, Holiday Shadowbox at Bittersweet on Dec 9, and DIY Soups at Harris on Dec 16 – registration is required for all these events.
 

If you don’t find any suggestions on our booklist that make you want to start crafting immediately, stop by one of our three locations – our reference librarians would be thrilled to help you find the perfect book.
 

Happy crafting!
