How to Make Cute DIY Christmas Ornaments
Gift shopping gets all the attention and a big chunk of time during the holiday season. Decorating? Almost none. The Christmas tree is almost an afterthought; something to get done in an hour or two. Why not spruce up at spruce this year with some new lights and some DIY Christmas ornaments?
If you’re willing to start early, the Home Depot is doing its annual holiday light trade-in through Nov. 15. Bring in your old or broken strands and get a discount on a new set of energy-saving LED Christmas lights.
And even though you’re unlikely to find sales on trees this time of year, you can always use coupon codes for Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart and other retailers that sell artificial ones.
Then add some DIY Christmas tree ornaments.
Not crafty? No problem! Limited budget? Don’t give it another thought.
Just grab a coupon for Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabrics, buy some clear glass ornaments, and then decorate to your heart’s content. It’s also a great way to get the kids involved, as Australian mommy blog Mum’s Grapevine has learned:
There’s nothing quite like a Chrissy tree brimming with DIY baubles all handmade with love and care by your talented kiddos. As they grow up, these decorations will be the sweet little reminders of how teeny tiny your poppets once were.
