More Ideas for DIY Christmas Projects

You can easily repurpose your old sweaters and buttons lying around the house to create a unique Christmas stocking. All you need is an old sweater, some yarn and sewing supplies.

If you were shopping for a wreath you would have noticed that they are quite pricey. If you spend a little extra time gathering a few materials, a wreath is an easy Christmas project!

  • Flat wreath form ($2 – $5)
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Snowflake ornaments (You can get these at the dollar store)
  • Ribbon ($3 – $4 in any craft store)

Once you gather the materials, it’s about placing the snowflake ornaments according to your style. There is no right way to your creativity. You will have a beautiful piece of Christmas décor in under $12. You can find other of interesting ideas for making wreaths online too!

Finally, consider unwanted gifts or household items that you have as potential new gifts for friends and family. Perhaps you bought a coat rack for a previous home or apartment. And now, this piece doesn’t match the style of your new place. Maybe you received a book you already have or something else you just don’t need. Keep quality items around to use during the holiday season. This is a great way to eliminate clutter and spend $0 on some of your gifts!

Using these DIY Christmas gift Pinterest ideas is a great way to manage your holiday budget.
