7 DIY gifts you can make this holiday season

As the fall weather creeps in, take advantage of the cooler climate and dedicate your time to some outdoor projects. You could go all out and finally build that outdoor gazebo you’ve been wanting or start small with a patio lantern to add some flair to the cottage porch.

Upgrades to your cottage can come in many forms: some big, some small. Some require a weekend, some a few weeks, if you have the time, but starting on these projects early will freshen up your space and give you something to be excited about for next year’s cottage season. (And with winter around the corner, you might want to get around to building that boot washing grate sooner rather than later.)
