Christmas is coming! Time to start preparing! You have only a month, so you’d better use it to the best of your abilities. Yes, you will be quite busy, as you always are during every holiday season; you need go shopping, get presents for everyone, and deck the halls with boughs of holly; then there’s the office party and the family dinners. But, in between this manic rushing from one task to another, there is one vital thing you simply must find a little time for: crafting!
Here we have some suggestions, courtesy of Diply, for Christmas decorations that you can create to bring on the holiday cheer.

10. Ugly Christmas sweater ornaments
Making these cute ornaments with the ugly sweater motif is quite an easy project to undertake, if you have a vinyl cutter. But don’t worry if you don’t, because you can also use some pre-made Christmas stickers or vinyl cutouts.

12. Ornament display tree
This isn’t as simple as the rest of these DIY projects. In fact, you will need to pay a visit to the lumber section of your local home improvement store and to know how to use some power tools. The final result is definitely worth the trouble, though.

The more colourful the better! Your children will just love making these Christmas tree magnets!

15. Mason jar lid ornaments
Crafting is always more enjoyable when you get to use materials you’ve never thought you’d use before. For example, those little berries on the last ornament? They’re small nose studs! Creative!
