Holiday DIY To Try

As remaining holiday to-dos and to-buys dance through our heads these last few days of the season, budgeting inevitably becomes a reigning factor. So, really—what better time to rely on our own resourcefulness (rather than our purse strings) to get things crossed off those lists? Pinching those pennies is a whole lot easier when we give our creativity full control!

  • Christmas and New Year’s crackers are a long-standing holiday tradition. DIY your own version and enjoy the freedom to customize the prizes rolled up inside! Bonus:  consider using them as colorful place cards for your next sit-down soiree. (image)
