I’ve been posting DIY Christmas ideas for years, so this year I decided to give you a “best of” DIY Christmas. Some of these are ideas I’ve developed on my own; others are not my ideas but ones we’ve enjoyed. This list runs the gamut of decorations to gifts to craft projects, so it should keep you plenty busy between now and Christmas!

Another great thing about these ideas is that most of them are extremely inexpensive. For the gifts, it’s easy to make a bunch of them and use as stocking stuffers, if you have multiple kids, or gift them to many different people without spending a lot of money. And because many of them can be personalized, they are even more special!
