Between decking your halls and picking the perfect tree, there’s hardly a moment to breathe during the holiday season. If seasonal DIY projects seem impossible, we are happy to tell you that many are actually simpler than you think. Our lifestyle contributor, Carrie, set aside one afternoon with $10 worth of baubles, ribbon and trim to prove that holiday crafts are not only doable but totally possible as well! So crank up the holiday music this weekend, gather your kids or your BFF and ditch the Grinch on your shoulder. Let’s raise a glass and offer up a collective “cheers!” to Christmas crafting.
