Decorating the Christmas tree every year can be a tremendously fun ritual, and people tend to enjoy hustling that container of ornaments out of the storage closet. But if you have a soft spot for DIY crafts, you likely see your tree as more of a canvas to be painted differently each year. We can't blame you, as there are some DIY enthusiasts in the halls of HLN, too (ahem, me).
If you'd like to do something fun with your kids or even with friends this holiday, all you need is a Pinterest board to pin your ideas to (here's ours) and a few basic supplies from around the house. We turned to craft blogs such as Craft E Corner, The Grant Life, Scrappin with Dee Dee and Untrained Housewife after we found their crafts on Pinterest, and the next thing you know, we had a great list of crafts to do using items as basic as toilet paper rolls, paint and a smidgen of Mod Podge. Not only fun, but a great way to save money to buy more presents!
