Making your own wood transfer only takes a handful of supplies and approximately eight hours.

Whether you're looking to save a little cash or just make your holiday gifts a little more personal this year, a hand-made gift can be a great option. A new video from the Cooperative of Photography highlights six easy-to-make DIY photo projects, most of which can be completed in a few hours and require supplies that might already be stashed in your house.

Although we would be unlikely to trash our old negatives by wrapping them around a candle (especially since negatives are extremely flammable), the results from projects like the iron transfer and wood transfer seem pretty legit. Watch the video below to learn more about each of the projects.
