2. Clothespin Ornaments

This may sound strange at first, but you can make beautiful tree ornaments out of clothespins or clothes pegs. You can use the pins to create snowflakes, stars and more. All you have to do is glue them together in your design and paint them. You could even add some festive glitter. When finished these look like very Christmassy ornaments.

4. Festive Rag Wreath

A lot of you who like crafts already make your own wreaths for Christmas. This year why not try a rag wreath. Rag wreaths are made with bits of fabric instead of the classic plants, baubles and tinsel. You could use festive fabric off cuts from your local sewing store or you could use fabric from around the house. Maybe old shirts and more. These wreaths are simple to make and will make any door look festive.
