Decorating is underway in our house! I have the outside lights up and we have some of our inside lights up.
Our tree has been decorated and even though it’s fake, it’s looking cute!
That wasn’t the star that I originally wanted but the tree is cheap so the branches can’t hold much weight, but the red star looks great.
The kids and I have also made some homemade decorations, which I am pretty proud of!
Printer paper and floss is used to make hanging snowflakes! They are suspended in our dining room.
These are fabric Christmas trees. They are sticks from outside and strips of fabric tied around them. You cut the fabric into the shape of a tree and hang them up with ribbon. They were an easy craft for us to do!
These are both dollar store items. I spray painted the church white and I used spray snow on the glass (I wouldn’t recommend). I made the “snow” with Epsom salt and glitter. I used mod podge in the areas I wanted the snow and then poured it on. They look amazing! I can’t wait to have an entire village.
These trees are made of air dry clay that we shaped with a cookie cutter. The kids painted them and then I hot glued them to the twine. They are a little heavy, so when I put them up they will need to lean or be supported to avoid breakage
I also have put some decorations outside.
The wreath I got for free from someone in my neighborhood and I spruced it up. I glued the Christmas balls on there to add some flair.
I think it turned out pretty cute, so if you are on a budget always keep Facebook market place in mind or after season clearance. You can always repaint or tweak something to make it your own.
The “gifts” under the wreath are just Amazon boxes stacked up after I wrapped them. I put pretty ribbon that I got from the dollar store to give it something special. My gifts are never that well wrapped, lol. I am also hoping that they don’t get mistaken for actual gifts because we do have some porch pirates in our area.
Well those are my current Christmas crafts, if you need any help making them just comment below. Also if you have any other craft ideas comment below, I LOVE crafting!!
I hope this season is finding you well. Happy Chanukah to anyone that celebrates.
