Char at Crap I’ve Made shows how to bring a little sparkle to your tree with these peace sign ornaments. There is no rocket science to this project! Some craft foam, glue, and glitter, and Char’s ornament is just as awesome as her inspiration. Plus, you could adorn your tree with tons of glittery peace signs for the cost of one from Pottery Barn!

Poinsettia Tree Skirt

Gail from Purple Hues and Me was truly inspired by a lovely white poinsettia stocking made by Yvonne of StoneGable. When she later stumbled upon an expensive poinsettia tree skirt in Neiman Marcus’ Christmas collection, she knew Yvonne’s tutorial was the ticket to creating her own. I can only imagine it was crazy tedious to cut out all those petals, but the outcome sure is beautiful!

Burlap Magnet Board

Amy from Home Sweet Thrifty Home turned a piece of leftover sheet metal into a stylish magnet board by covering it with burlap and adding a stenciled design with permanent marker. I love the fact that this is magnetic, so you can hang photos without poking holes through them. And would you believe it only cost Amy $5 to make?!?

Christmas Tree Pillow

Have I mentioned that I really like DIY pillows? Oh wait… only like a million times! So it’s no surprise that I was ohhing and ahhing over this adorable Christmas tree pillow made by Jamie from Three Scoops of Love. Not only it is pretty to look at, but Jamie added her own twist with removable “ornaments” so her kids can “trim the tree.” That special touch makes me love it all the more!

Glitter Photo Ornaments

I love this sweet idea from Jamie at C.R.A.F.T. to create a Christmas tree with a family theme. Of course, a family-themed tree necessitates family photos, and Jamie and her mom whipped up a passel of glittery photo ornaments for only nine cents a piece. How’s that for budget friendly?!?

Capiz Shell Pendant Light

Kelly from View Along the Way was on a mission to tackle the bare handing light bulbs in her home one bulb at a time. A pricey capiz shell chandelier from Horchow caught her eye, but it was a tea light holder from TJMaxx that actually made the dream a reality. Kelly and her husband turned the candle holder and an IKEA lamp into their own pretty pendant.

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow

Pillows made from authentic feed sacks can cost a pretty penny, but Char from Crap I’ve Made shows it’s pretty simple to get the same look for less. Char created her pillow cover from drop cloth and then jollied it up with a stenciled Old Saint Nick. She scuffed up the image with sandpaper for a well-worn, vintage feel. No, it’s not made from a fifty-year-old grain sack, but, personally, I’d rather have a pillow customized with my choice of graphic, text, color, etc.!
