Thanks to the Hostess

You gotta appreciate any holiday hostess who takes on the responsibility of serving a big dinner and entertaining a large group of guests! Here are a few handmade gift ideas to take to your hostess this holdiay season. These also make great gifts to give to neighbors and friends over the holidays.
1. Decoupaged Serving Tray: A hostess never has enough serving platters or trays. Upcycle a tray with a pretty autumn theme. The easiest way to do it is by finding a rectangular shaped wooden tray and decoupaging scrapbook paper over it. But if you have a circular tray like the one shown, which is a bit trickier to cover, click here for a great tutorial on how to get it done.

2. Painted Glasses: How adorable are these glasses?! Gives "milk mustache" a whole new meaning! These are painted glasses from Tatertots and Jello. Find the complete tutorial here.

3. No-Sew Placemats: I love anything that doesn't involve sewing! So, I gasped when I saw these pretty no-sew placemats. Use red for festive Christmas placemats or a winter blue would be pretty for your dining room table. For the template and tutorial, click here.

4. Humorous Hang Tags: If you just don't have the time to make something, a bottle of wine is always a reliable and appreciated gift. These wine tags from Popptags (found via hostessblog.com) are a fun touch to give to a host with a sense of humor! This one says, "The Wine Store Guy Said This Was Good." There is also "Regifted with Love" and "Luckily your taste in wine isn't as good as your taste in friends!" See the full collection here.
