DIY Christmas

I am deeming this Christmas the year of the DIY for a couple reasons. First, we kinda just bought a house, laid all new wood floors, and did a complete kitchen gut and reno so money is kinda tight these days. Don't get me wrong, all of those things were worth every penny but our bank accounts are feeling a little thirsty, if ya know what I mean. Also, my life has changed so much since falling in love with Pinterest that I have a tremendous desire to make and do so many crafty things! Therefore, we are going to reign-in the shopping a little this year and instead I will try my hand at making a few things to give as gifts as well as deck our halls.

Here are a few ideas I have swirling around:

Marshmallow garland

Pottery Barn Santa knock-off



Spice trees (cloves, peppercorns, coffee beans)

Snow jars


I guess putting it out there for all the blogging world to see is my challenge to myself to see how many I will actually do. Wish me luck! Any of you planning on DIY-ing gifts or decor this year?

All of these images can be found on my Pinterest Christmas Board
