Celebrations are a part of life – house-warmings, birthdays, graduations – but, how do you celebrate while on a budget? Here are 27 ideas for inexpensive DIY gifts that only look expensive.

Really and truly, these gifts look like they’re straight off a table in Anthropologie. You may not already have the supplies, but they will certainly be cheaper than buying the product straight from a store. Chances are that you’ll be able to use the leftover supplies for another future gift. 

expensive-diy-giftsOne other idea to put this list to fun use is to use it as a craft. One year for my daughter’s birthday, we had a small group of girls over, and chose a fun button bracelet craft to do together. The girls had so much fun, and they were able to take their bracelet home as a memento. There are several items here that would be perfect for a birthday craft!
