10 {Alternative} DIY Christmas Decorations

Author: Vanessa

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how much I hate your branches!

Yes, it’s true; I’m not a fan of the real Christmas tree. They smell like a winter wonderland and look so pretty when lit, but they’re a mess. And my dismay does not end with the tree. I have a small issue with all of the Christmas decorations many hold so near and dear. The ornaments are ordinary and the centerpieces probably belonged to your great-grandmother (that means they’re OLD). Year after year, we are forced to pull out those dull and dusty decorations. I need a change!

With a little help from the Internet, I found the change I was so desperately looking for. Below, I compiled a list of alternative Christmas decorations that also happen to be DIY – which means less expensive! Take a look
