Oh, the holidays. What other time of the year do we all feel more gleeful, thankful, burned out and busy, all at once? It's also a special time when even non-crafty folks get a-craftin', with their holiday baking, card making and gift wrapping.
DIY decorations is where it all starts. As a kid, we all made decorations at home or in school, whether it was a paper-cut snowflake, or a greeting card for grandma. But who says you can't make your own decorations as an adult? With a little time, supplies and creativity, you can easily make your space colourful and festive-ready.
I love these simple ornaments made from a corrugated cardboard box and black marker. I made some of my own and strung them up on a bouquet of birch branches. Feel free to print out this template to help you along with your own cardboard ornaments.
If you prefer something a little less childish and two-dimensional, here's a short list of my favourite online tutorials that will show you how to make ornaments and garlands you'll be happy to wrap around everything.
