20 DIY Christmas Projects That Will Get You In The Festive Spirit

Every year, we spend lots of money and an endless amount of time at the mall searching for the perfect gift for our loved ones. After spending so much money on gifts, do we really need to spend even more money on Christmas decorations? Why waste money on items that we’ll only use once a year?

Luckily for us, creative people exist in our society and are generous enough to share their creative DIY ideas that cost way less than purchasing any actual decorations. We’ve collected some awesome DIY Christmas projects for those of you who want to save some money or just want to express some of your creativity this year.
