14 DIY Ornaments to Give Your Christmas Tree the Homiest of Feels
Yes, the holiday season is crazy busy, but it's also the perfect time to add some DIY fun to your family life. And we're not talking about taking on just any old project. Instead, let us suggest some you can display on the season's biggest star: your Christmas tree. DIY ornaments are easy enough for kids to make (most with a little help from Mom or Dad) and stylish enough that you'll be proud to hang them for years. Find your favorite (we're partial to the easy ones using printable sewing patterns) and get crafting. Your kids — and your tree — will thank you.
