Christmas is a wonderful time of year; the kids are home from school, everyone is in a cheery mood, houses are decked out in beautiful decorations...it's truly a magical time. Since the weather is typically cold and there's possibly even some snow on the ground, it's a great time to bundle up inside - maybe even by a fire - and do some homemade Christmas crafts. So, bake some Christmas cookies
, get your craft supplies ready, and prepare yourself for some DIY fun!
One of the best (and most thoughtful) things to craft during the holidays are homemade gifts
. Giving someone something homemade is just such a great way to express how much you care about them! Plus, it's affordable for you and you get the skip the lines at the mall. To help give you some inspiration, we have a ton of different DIY Christmas gifts
for you to check out. We've got gifts for mom, dad, him or her, and even frugal gift ideas for your neighbors

that will really put your homemade gift over the top.
What other kinds of holiday crafts can you make? Decorations of course! Store-bought decorations during the holidays can be ridiculously expensive so it's always better to go the DIY route if you can. Some of our most popular DIY Christmas decor ideas are our Melted Crayon Ornaments
