Top Ten Christmas Decorating Ideas!

I had a lot of great feedback about my Thanksgiving Decor Pinterest Round up so I thought I would throw one together for Christmas. 

1. Christmas Card Holder
Do people even send out Christmas Cards anymore? Once my family stopped doing things we could brag about, we stopped sending them out. Just kidding. Kind of. 
We did get a few this year and my Mom loves displaying them. This is an easy craft that little kids could help with if you trust them with paint!

2. Free Printables
I am a sucker for these free printables. It requires no work or craftiness on your end. You just need to press CNTRL+P. Just what I like!

3. Ornament Shadow Box
Another super easy and quick addition to your Christmas decoration. Shadow boxes are always on sale at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Grab one of those and a big box of ornaments and boom!

4. Felt Garland
Felt balls and garlands are becoming more and more popular. I saw a really cute tree that used this as trimming, or you could use it with one of the free printables!

5. Framed Wrapping Paper
Ope, another easy craft! Do you see a pattern here? Or you could probably tell that my over ambitious Thanksgiving crafting has scarred me for life. Because it truly did. I almost got in several fights at Hobby Lobby, but that is neither here nor there. ANYWAYS. Find some fun wrapping paper, maybe let every member of the family pick one and then just frame it! You could also find some fun vintage wrapping paper on etsy or ebay. 

6. Stick Trees
This would be another fun project to do with kids. They could go find a bunch of different sticks and help you organize them. I also did this with different pieces and sizes of scrapbook paper, both super cute!

7. Candy Cane Centerpiece 
My Mom loves to do centerpieces for our Christmas Eve dinner. This one looks fairly easy and most importantly for all the people broke from buying Christmas Presents---it's cheap! A 99 cent pack of candy canes and a vase from Goodwill. Hot glue them and tie them with a bow!

8. Twine Star 
Careful, this one requires a staple gun and when you have the kind of track record that I do with those then you might be banned from this craft. 

9. Wrapping
I think using butcher paper is way cuter than regular wrapping paper and it's cheaper! Here are some free printable gift tags that can dress up the butcher paper. 

10. Cards
I am not sure what to call these, food labels? Either way I think they are super cute. I don't love the little signs that this picture includes but there are some free printables on Catch My Party that are supposed to be used for place cards that you could use. Or you could glitter a 3x5 card. Super cute, better than magic marker.
