1. Ugly Sweater Onesie: Ugly sweaters have actually gotten pretty hip, which is why you need to take things up a level if you want to win that party contest. A full onesie covered in holiday feels? It’s so ugly it’s cute. (via Brit + Co)


2. Funfetti Gingerbread House: Nix the traditional gingerbread and make a house out of something infinitely more delicious. Or make both. (via Studio DIY)

4. DIY Batik Indigo Stockings: Goodbye red and green, hello lovely indigo. Spruce up your mantel with a brand new color this year and charm your loved ones with handmade stockings. (via Brit + Co)


5. Mulled Wine: It sounds super fancy, but mulled wine is easy to make and can be tweaked to your exact taste. Plus it smells delicious while it’s brewing away on the stove. (via A Beautiful Mess)


6. Wrapping Paper Wall Tree: Take the paper chain idea vertical with this super easy tree DIY. Seriously, if you can tape paper together, you can have this tree up in less time than it takes you to choose your favorite holiday song. (via Brit + Co)


7. Balloon Animal Ornament: True, they’d look great on a kid’s tree, but that’s no reason you can’t add a few of these awesome ornaments to the adult tree. Nothing says “mature adult” like a balloon animal or four. (via Little Inspiration)


8. Mindy Kaling’s Moschino Pumps: Stop trying to find the perfect pair of shoes to go with your holiday outfit and DIY a pair instead. (via Brit + Co)

10. Desktop Calendar: Got a friend that always remembers a birthday? Gift them this cheery desk calendar that goes from year to year without skipping a beat. (via Brit + Co)
