DIY Christmas Gifts: Edible Gift Baskets

I love to make and receive DIY Christmas gifts. You can find a lot of homemade Christmas gift ideas on the Internet. One of my favorites is edible gift baskets. They are easy and fun to make. If you are on a tight budget, make a mini gift basket and add beautiful embellishments such as a gorgeous handmade bow or a Christmas pick.

Here is an example of a mini Christmas gift basket.

Please, share your DIY Christmas gifts with others…

Materials to make this gift basket: a small basket, floral foam, Kit Kat candy bars, a sealed bottle of wine, a bow, wooden skewers, clear packing tape, a bow.

1. Find a small basket (7” x 5” x 2” basket in this example).

2. Place a wine bottle in the basket against one side. See how much floral foam you need to cut in order to fill the remaining space in the basket.
