Deck the halls with homemade Christmas decorations! There are a number of reasons we enjoy getting extra crafty around the holidays: Christmas crafts never fail to get us in the holiday spirit, they're festive and fun to enjoy with others, they give added personality to our holiday home, and they're also a lot less expensive than the generic store decorations you'll find.
All that aside, the Christmas season is still a busy one, and for those of us who look upon crafts in a friendly light, but aren't experts, we need decor ideas that take a little less time and skill, but still look great.
The Christmas craft tutorials below are fantastic because they won't demand a ton of extra time, money or effort, but the results are gorgeous decorations you'll be proud to display for all your holiday guests!
