I am sharing three of my favorite Christmas crafts that are both budget-friendly and so easy to make.

Ribbon Wrapped Christmas Ornament

This DIY ribbon wrapped Christmas ornament is one of the easiest and prettiest ornaments to make!  This beautiful homemade ornament would make a great gift too!

I had shared this ribbon ornament a couple of years ago and it is still one of my favorites. This ornament is such a great craft project because it is inexpensive, quick and easy to make, and can be made for variety of home decor styles. The ribbon and holiday pick you choose with determine the style of your ornament.

Simple DIY Holiday Jar Floating Candles with Boxwood and Cranberries

Using fresh Boxwood clippings and cranberries, create these simple DIY Holiday Jar Floating Candles. These holiday jar candles are such an easy way to add natural beauty to your holiday home decor!

The natural red and green elements in these holiday jar candles make them perfect for your holiday decor! Use them as part of a tablescape, seasonal vignette, or anywhere you would like to add a holiday touch.

I have been making these holiday candle jars for years, but I recently shared them for the first time. You can read all about how I used this simple craft project on my Christmas dining room table and in my Christmas kitchen too.

Jingle Bell Ornament

I love decorating with ribbon. It is such a great, inexpensive way to add a pop of color or pattern to your decor.

Using ribbon, along with holiday bells from Dollar Tree, make a Simple DIY Jingle Bell Ornament! Use it to decorate your tree, embellish a gift, or hang this simple ornament on a doorknob for a festive touch!
