Save big this holiday making DIY gifts

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) Julie Ryan, the blogger behind "Less than Perfect Life of Bliss," joined the Local 8 News This Morning team to share DIY christmas gift ideas that won't break the bank.

Use sugar and dish soap to make a hand scrub. Bottle in small jars and add small labels to make it a complete gift.

Julie also shared easy to make memo boards. Frame scrapbook paper or wrapping paper in a picture frame, decorate with stickers and use dry erase markers to write on the glass.
