Yesterday I shared a store-gift option for the holidays and today I wanted to share a DIY one. I’ll admit that this is partly driven by the fact that I’ve always wanted to try this. Another is, I feel like this is a sweet, affordable, and fun DIY option. I had paintbrushes and white paint on hand ($5 in total) and grabbed these ornament balls from @walmart – around $4 for a box of 8! I decided to personalize them with names of recipients. I decided to paint by hand rather than using an acrylic marker because I was afraid of breaking the ornaments 😆. Painting snowflakes, ⛄️, or 🎄 would be other great routes too! Do you give out DIY or personalized gifts during the holidays? We try to do a mix of both!

Reminisce a bit by turning family photos into Christmas decor.
Use craft glue to stick copies of family photos onto Christmas baubles, round woodcut slices or DIY cardboard cutout flat Christmas baubles. Add an optional wash of colour paint or glitter and seal with a clear varnish.
You could also personalise Christmas stockings, advent calendars, and wreaths with family photos.
