Quick Tips

Craft Your Own Holiday Cards

One of the best ways to keep the holidays cheap is to rely on your own creativity to carry the season. Start today by making and sending handmade cards to your friends and family, HGTV suggests. With a few simple materials — paper, glue, felt, glitter and so on — you can easily make cards that look like they cost a fortune. Try creating a Santa card with a cotton-ball beard, for example, a winter scene with glitter “snow” or a card that turns into an ornament. Whatever you craft, it will be inexpensive and fun to spread a little bit of holiday cheer.

Holiday Decorating on the Cheap

Decorating for the holidays doesn’t have to be a chore — or break the bank — if you get creative. Even small spaces can share the joy of the season with DIY projects such as a tabletop or twig tree, Good Housekeeping says. Evergreen garlands and clippings can bring the colors and scent of the season into the home, while a handmade “tree” or card display can serve as the focal point of the room. Don’t forget to place candles and string lights strategically throughout the house to make the holidays feel warm and magical, the story says, even as you keep an eye on your budget.

Homemade Foods Make Great Holiday Gifts

Having trouble deciding what to give family and friends? There’s one thing you can give that everyone needs and appreciates — food! HGTV offers 45 easy-to-make recipes for mouthwatering seasonal treats that are equally good for entertaining or gifting. Whether you try your hand at toffee or fudge, marmalade or bread, crinkle cookies or caramels, giftees will appreciate the time and effort you put in to create holiday cheer from scratch before devouring your tasty treats. You can make extra so that you have some on hand for those surprise guests, too!

Get Those Holiday Cards in the Mail Now

With just 26 days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, this year’s shortened holiday season doesn’t leave much time to get cards in the mail. But you can get them together fast with a personal touch using easy ideas from The Spruce Crafts. Pretty much all you’ll need is paper, a pair of scissors and school glue, plus embellishments such as ribbons, buttons and glitter, to make unforgettable, one-of-a-kind greeting cards to send family and friends. Some can even be printed directly onto cardstock using a color printer, so it’s never been easier to wish people a happy holiday.
