How to DIY Your Christmas – 50+ Awesome Ideas

How to DIY Your Christmas – 50+ Awesome Ideas

Hello and Welcome! I’m so glad you dropped by.

My goal in everything I post is to help you create a home by hand. And that includes helping you have the handmade, homemade Christmas you’ve always dreamed of.

In fact, just this past August, we launched a brand new membership called Handmade Homemade Holidays: Your Guide to a Debt Free, Stress Free Christmas.

Upon signing up members are provided with a digital Christmas Planner to create a savings and spending plan. One to two new worksheets are added each month so members can budget for and plan ahead with the goal of achieving a holiday season that is debt free and as stress free as possible.

I firmly believe that getting back to the basics of a handmade, homemade Christmas is the key to reducing the stress of over consumption that can be so tempting at this time of year. So in addition to the planner worksheets, I also provide exclusive embroidery, sewing and crafts patterns and activities to help to recapture the joy of an old fashioned Christmas.

The membership is closed to new members at the moment but I’m thinking of holding a 48 hour flash sale soon for those who are on the waitlist. If this is something you’re at all interested in head on over to Handmade Homemade Holidays, scroll down and get yourself on that list!

In the meantime, a group of 50+ bloggers, myself included, have teamed up to kick start your holiday making with lots of ideas for How to DIY Your Christmas this year.
