19 Handmade Christmas Projects That Will Make Your Home Festive and Cozy

Add a touch of homemade charm to your holiday décor with these easy and festive DIY handmade Christmas projects. There’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out, these projects are sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

It’s that time of year when the stores are starting to fill up with shiny new Christmas decor.

Sometimes it’s really hard to resist the urge to buy every pretty decoration we see lining the aisles of our favorite home decor stores.

However, for the sake of our wallets, we can’t always indulge in all the new beautiful pieces we love.

So that’s where a little handmade charm comes in!

We’ve both made lots of DIY projects over the years to save ourselves some money.

Don’t get us wrong, we do love a great find and will splurge sometimes on new decorations for the holidays.

But making your own Christmas decor not only saves you money it gives you a sense of pride when it’s finished.
