Giving our holiday spirit a unique look

Guest post written by Emma Smith

I think that it's so boring to go with the typical, traditional looking holiday decor. I'm much more interested in going with something that looks unique and homemade. I've always been quite crafty anyway, or at least really enjoy making crafts, so it's only natural that I use that gift to decorate our home for the holidays!

Plus, it can sometimes save me money to make my own Christmas decorations. While I was online looking for some cheap DIY projects, I ran across some information on Sears HVAC and after I looked at that, I decided to get them to come and replace our system because it's so old and doesn't seem to work so well no matter how many times we have repair people try to fix it.

I did find some more success with some new ideas for some Christmas decorating projects. I even found a tutorial on how to make a gingerbread house out of felt so that you can bring out the same one year after year! IÕm all for something thatÕs cute and reusable after just one season.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing, it really is more joyful giving the holiday spirit a unique look...mmmm gingerbread,would love to make one too :-)

  2. We make a lot of handmade gifts as well. There are so many nice things you can make now these days. My mom is the real crafty one in the family, but we do OK too.
