Its often very simple to make our own decorations, and equally simple to add a hand made touch to gifts we’re giving. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing (hit pictures of suggested products for details or to order).
Stamped Gift Bags
I love the simplicity of this type of gift bag. Just use craft gift bags, a stamp, fine ribbon and tissue paper.
Staggered Row of Hanging Ornaments
A row of hanging ornaments could be tucked along a mantle or dangle along the side of a chest or from the top of a window. Simply tie ornaments onto varying lengths of string or ribbon and attach to a dowel or wire, or even a fine tree branch to lay along your mantel.
Homemade Cookies in a Jar
Many of the people who rarely get home baked treats are also the ones without any place to store them. A lovely gift for such a person would be a cookie jar or biscuit tin filled with homemade cookies.
Cluster of Balls
Just tie a bunch of mixed Christmas balls on varying lengths of string and joint them at the top to hang in a doorway or above an island or table like a chandelier.
Paper Doilies Tree
Glittery Tree Branches
Glittery branches look beautiful laid along a mantel, along the top of a hutch or kitchen cabinets, as wall hangings, or in many kinds of Christmas displays, with ornaments tied to them or with decorations nestled amongst the forks of the branches.
