7 Great Ideas & Inspiration For Christmas Decor, Gifts, Crafts and Baking

Tip #1~Decorating:

Greenery in a bowl with red ornaments is a winner anytime and oh-so-easy!

Tip #2~Save Money by Refreshing Old Decor:

I saved myself money by adding new flowers and accents to this 11 year old wreath,  instead of throwing it away.  You can see the before & after HERE. You probably have something that you can refresh too!

Tip #3~ Use Red for Outdoor Decor:

Using red outside always gives a big pop that gives the most ‘bang’ for your buck! Try a few red accents and you will be surprised! You can more of my front porch HERE.

Tip #4~ Quick Craft Idea:Straw Snowflakes

Straws can make the quickest craft project. This is a great project for kids during the holidays. Get instructions HERE.

Tip #5~ Easy Gift Idea for Friends.

Even if you are not crafty, this is easy to make. If you can stir, you can make this for your girlfriends. Get the project HERE.

Tip #6~Easy Gift Ideas for Families

Give the gift of a family movie night, and add a gift card for a meal if the budget allows! And mom also has the night off from dishes too.  See more HERE.

Tip #7~Baking Quick & Easy

Take any favorite cookie recipe and give it a Christmas spin with a twist like using Christmas colors, like these Christmas chips in place of chocolate chips. You can find the recipe HERE.
