DIY Christmas Decorations from Good Housekeeping

However, if your family weren’t hoarders or you are just starting out away from your family then you might not have ten boxes filled with Christmas decorations just sitting in your garage. If this is your situation, then you might need to spend some time on DIY decorations instead of spending your entire Christmas gift budget on fancy and pricey decorations. Here is an article with 60 DIY ideas from Good Housekeeping:
