Today I’m sharing 17 super simple DIY Christmas crafts that anyone can do. Budget-friendly and fun, too!
First, I want to say a big CONGRATS to Eileen A. on winning my latest giveaway! I’ll be doing another after the holidays so stay tuned.
I think the holidays may be my favorite time to craft. It’s just such a festive time and I can come up with endless ideas for holiday-themed ideas.
Plus, it’s super budget-friendly too. That’s always a win in my book.
And it’s just FUN. Right?
Today I’ve rounded up a bunch of DIY Christmas crafts I’ve done over the years. Some of which are so old, you’ve probably never seen them!
I hope they will inspire you to get crafty this holiday season. :)
