Keep holiday spending under control with these innovative and easy Christmas crafts that spread holiday cheer. We have tons of Christmas projects for you to try, including holiday door decorations and festive table toppers — all available on a budget!
Take a stroll through the neighborhood and collect a few fall pinecones and pine needles. Arrange this free foliage in glass ornaments, bowls, and hurricane vases for a fragrant and festive look. Match the display to your other holiday decorations by adding a few colored ornaments or tinsel to the mix.

Adorn basic ornaments with glitter. For simple designs, use a paintbrush to apply glue directly to the ornament, and then sprinkle with glitter. If you want to try a more detailed design and aren’t comfortable applying glue by hand, punch a snowflake, Christmas tree, or other shape out of cardstock using a holiday-theme paper punch. Apply glue to the punch-out and stamp it on the ornament. Finish with glitter. Tip: Sprinkle glitter over a tray for easier clean up.
Wrap a foam wreath frame with strips of felt in varying widths and colors. To create the berries, cut a long, thin strip of red felt with pinking shears and roll it into a circle. Secure with fabric glue, and attach to leaves cut from green felt. For a more traditional look, skip the orange and turquoise strips.
