This holiday season, preserve your peace of mind—and pocketbook—by prioritizing how you celebrate. If you love to decorate with handmade pieces, focus on making and hanging your favorite ornaments and garlands. Then compensate for your time spent decorating by wrapping gifts in newsprint and relying on made-ahead casseroles in the kitchen. Or maybe you’d rather spend time on exquisite eco-friendly gift wrap. Whatever your holiday priorities, we’ve got you covered with a bevy of homemade Christmas crafts and holiday projects, from making your own wreaths to creating reusable bags for gifting.
Bedeck your front door with a homemade wreath that will welcome visitors to your home with fragrant holiday smells or the simple beauty of nature.
Instead of decorating your tree with cookie-cutter ornaments from big-box stores, lend your tree some character with homemade ornaments.
Traditional holiday gift wrapping creates a substantial amount of waste each year. Wrapping gifts in recycled, recyclable or earth-conscious materials doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice good-looking gifts.
