Fa la la la la la la la la. This Christmas is a special one for me. It’s my first in my very own place. My first time decorating my own tree. I’m very excited about this. As much as I would love to cover my Christmas tree with sparkling lights and delicate glass ornaments, I can barely afford the Christmas tree, let alone anything to go on it. This is where being a crafty designer comes in handy. This year, I will not sacrifice aesthetics due to a small budget so I’m going to make all of my ornaments out of paper. Some will be printed versions of my own design, which I’ll also be selling in my etsy shop, while others will be crafted out of paper like those seen above. Pinterest is a goldmine for finding interesting paper ornament ideas. Here are a couple more that I’m going to attempt to deck the halls with.
I think I’m going to limit my color scheme to red, white, gold, and butcher paper. We’ll see how it goes. What are your Christmas plans? Any DIY ornaments?
