It's a DIY Christmas!!!

Absolutely.
Positively.
Without a doubt.
FOR SURE...

Homemade gifts are the best, right???

Doesn't that quilt your mom made you just warm your heart?

What about the vase that your preschooler decoupaged for you?

And you're never getting rid of that poem that the love of your life penned all by his lonesome (okay, maybe that one's a stretch (c; )!

And there are literally a BAZILLION DIY projects for this holly jolly time of year...

DIY scalloped tree skirt via Centsational Girl...I thought this was totally adorable and with felt, so cheap and easy!


DIY tie dyed ornaments via Hi Sugarplum! (this was last year, but they're so cute!):


DIY gift ideas:

(I may or may not have whipped up a batch of these for gifts and it was super quick and easy and they only cost me about $1.30 each! And how darling would they be as gift toppers???)

For the menfolk, Para cord bracelets...




Or you could just go the free printable route, Gift tags via Lemon Squeezy:


You can even do your own free printable Christmas art...I thought this one was lovely:



Any projects you're tackling for the holidays???

Girl I hear ya! I'm all about a DIY holiday this year. There are so many good things to be made this time of year. How 'bout that tree skirt, huh? That would be delicious fun under the tree- I see mine in candy colors!

I made two scarfs and some chocolate pretzels, but that's about all I'm tackling this year. I love your inspiration!

I LOVE that tree skirt! I might have to make one. My tree skirt doesn't fit around the bottom of my tree, which is super cute.
