Gear up for December with three affordable and customizable craft products that are perfect for all your holiday festivities. If you plan to host a few parties, wrap many gifts, or decorate your home with a hint of handmade decor, start with the basics: glass ornaments, kraft paper, and unscented candles.
Budget Buy: Clear Glass Ornaments
No holiday would be complete with a handmade ornament or two. Keep a box of plain glass ornaments on hand, as they make for a great family craft, easy decor, and personalized gifts.
- Fill them with confetti
- Marble them with paint
- Add some sprigs of eucalyptus and fir
- Tattoo them
- Turn them into mini terrariums
We suggest: 10-Piece Heavy Duty Clear Glass Ornaments, $6.25
Budget Buy: Kraft Paper
Kraft paper is pretty cheap if bought in bulk, and is great for a huge variety of holiday projects. Plus, I'm pretty sure classic brown packaging will never go out of style, so save your leftovers for next year.
We suggest: Brown Kraft Paper Roll (30" x 150'), $20.50
Budget Buy: White Pillar Candles
Forgo expensive scented candles and opt for a more affordable route. Snag a batch of unscented white pillar candles provide the ultimate canvas for your holiday decor.
