Can we just not talk about the fact Christmas is only three weeks away? Instead of stressing out about all the gifts you need to buy, give yourself a creative break. Mix up a holiday mocktail, snack on something unhealthy and DIY something super festive. Whether you’re in the mood to make a wall tree, ornaments to put on that really perfect tree or a fashion accessory for your tree (well, at least the skirt), these 10 DIY projects are just the thing to put off the shopping madness.
1. No-Sew Pizza Skirt: Nope, it’s not takeout — it’s the coolest (and most delicious) tree skirt ever. Use colored felt or cotton for the base and add all your favorite toppings… at no extra cost. (via Brit + Co)
4. Fringe Wall Tree: Skip the tree this year and opt for a this small-space alternative instead. Throw on some pom pom garlands and maybe even a few of your very own DIY ornaments from this list. (via Brit + Co)
5. Marbled Paper: How are those Christmas cards going? Haven’t started yet? Don’t stress — marble instead. It’s super addictive, and you’ll have a stack of cards set to send before you know it. (via Brit + Co)
6. Free Printable Calendar: If you feel a little shiver of happiness when you get to go buy a new planner, you’ll love getting a head start on the calendar game with this pretty (and free!) printable. (via This Little Street)
