It is my 'theme' this year, my way of saving money. I am really getting my finances under control and definitely looking into more frugal ways to have fun.
I've created a new board on Pinterest, you can find it here: homemade-Christmas. It's a way for me to put all the ideas I find in one place.
I've already started making my own decorations. My Sunday Photo was a fairy, that I made at a Christmas craft class, last weekend. I have more of those to make (may even host a giveaway for one).
The other thing I've made, I'm utterly in love with. Possibly because it is from my own imagination, and is coming together exactly as I hoped. I am going to blog about the total process, but for now, here's a sneak peak:
Isn't it cute!? Wait until you see the finished product.
I've bought some paints to experiment with painting jars. I'm hoping I can create little candlelit snowmen or snowflakes.....Not sure if I'm arty enough, but I'll have a go.
There is more to come on this, this post is more of an introduction. I'm going to look at gifts I can make and talk you through how to make them yourselves.
So if you have any frugal/money saving ideas, do share. I've already been pointed in the direction of some sites on Facebook, with some great ideas.
Would love to hear your plans.
