DIY Projects For Christmas

When my girls were little, I did a lot of DIY projects. For instance, I made Halloween costumes and Christmas decorations. Who doesn’t remember making paper garland or popcorn strings? DIY projects are a great way to get your kids involved and spread the Christmas spirit. It’s so much fun. Add a few snacks and some Christmas music, and you have a lifetime of memories.

Admittedly, DIY has gotten a lot more creative than I ever was. So many great ideas out there. Some, more complicated than others, depending on how much time you want to spend. Frankly, they make great gifts as well. Grandparents love homemade decorations and students love Christmas baking. Many years ago, my oldest made me a Christmas wreath which still hangs on my front door each year.

Last year, my closest friend made me bath salts and body scrub. All of which were greatly appreciated. DIY is love, and so, I wanted to share some of the creative ideas other bloggers have had in the past. They’re sure to inspire you this holiday season.
