Every once in a while it’s nice to find an easy holiday DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I am the queen of long and drawn out DIY’s. But when I was at home goods and saw some adorable pom pom trees for $29.00 each I decided it was DIY time. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found everything I needed for pom pom Christmas trees! And of course, it was on sale. So my cost for each tree was less than $10.
Back in July when all of you were posting beach photos, I was posting Christmas Craft DIY photos here on my blog. Some of you thought I was crazy. In fact, a lot of you couldn’t believe I was posting Christmas ideas when it was ninety degrees outside! But now that it is almost December, can I tell you how happy I am that I have so many of these completed?
This year I decided I wanted to make personalized Christmas ornaments. I thought it would be fun to make a list of words that were special to everyone in our family. Words from the year 2017 … such as people’s names, places we have visited and anything else I could think of that has a special meaning to our family. I started with a list of 35 words but by the time I finished making the ornaments the list had grown to over 50. It’s a good thing the ornaments were easy to make!
Every year I try to come up with the perfect homemade gift for my family members. I am not exaggerating when I say I have been doing this since I was eight years old. Fortunately, I think the gifts have gotten better as the years have progressed!
As many of you know, I have a serious shortage of Christmas decorations. I own one box of decorations and I need to step up my game!
I am starting to get into the Christmas mode in a really big way. If you read my blog post earlier this week, you will know that I am really panicked about putting together all of my Christmas decorations. So let’s start with this garland!
