DIY Christmas Decorations

This will be our third Christmas in our home that we bought 2 weeks before Christmas. I was trying to stay on a budget and have cute matching Christmas wreaths. So I decided to make them myself. I have made cheap little wreaths before when I was younger but nothing like these. These were actually surprisingly easy to make.

Items you need:

I got this stuff at my dollar store near me except the letters I got them at a hobby store.

I used my fingerprint to make the dots on my letter and let dry. I used the thick glitter ribbon and wrapped around evenly. Added the mini ornaments with the red curling ribbon and picked a color pattern. I then used the same curling ribbon to add on my letter. There you go, easy peasy. I think I’m going to strip it down at the end of the season and do something different next year. You can see the ornaments are starting to fade from the sun.

I also made other little cheap things I found and put them together. I made a centerpiece and the kids helped me make homemade ornaments and signs.

I put this centerpiece together for less than $10.00.

The salt dough ornaments were super easy to make. 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 cup of salt, and 1 cup of warm water. Mix it all together and get creative. put it in the oven on 250 degrees until it’s dry. Also, I have used <a src="//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=mamarohrers04-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B00IGNWYNE&asins=B00IGNWYNE&linkId=093c3003d9cd974886bde628dc92eebf&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff" href=" “>play dough in the past as well. I found some wooden pieces at our hobby shop and had the kids paint them.

I love having the kids make something new every year (add the date). Then you can look back at their little handprints. So cute:) Let me know what other Christmas decorations you have made. Happy holidays. Love ya, Mary xoxoxo
