Easy DIY Christmas Decorations
I may be Jewish, but I love the Christmas holiday. I love going to my friends houses and helping them decorate their trees!
When I was in high school I loved going caroling with my drama and choir friends! I always got excited when I started hearing all of the Christmas music on the radio.
I wouldn’t miss the holiday specials – Rudolph the Red Noised Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (not the Jim Carrey version), The Year Without a Santa Claus (love the Heat Miser), Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman – sigh and It’s a Wonderful Life (THE BEST!) – I love them all!!!!
That’s why I am always looking for cute and easy DIY holiday decorations – these are easy to do and fun for the whole family! Not too mention, they are cheap to make! Why get expensive store bought Christmas decorations, when you can make them with your kids!
While the Menorah Tree did not go over well with my family (for the record, I think it is a great option for the mixed faith family and totally embraces Hanukkah THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS!!!), however the Mensch on a Bench was a HUGE hit! (How about the Elf on a Shelf craze! Love that – check out my super fun Elf on a Shelf Ideas!)
I will be embracing my inner Santa’s little elf this year and returning to my youth (when we could make Christmas decorations in art class in elementary school) and creating some fun holiday crafts with my kids!
Jewish or Christian – Hanukkah or Christmas – it is all about getting fun and getting crafty!!! Whatever you celebrate – here are some really fun EASY DIY holiday decorations you can do with your kids (or probably in my case, with my friend Maria because my kids will get bored and want to play video games – Maria – you in?)
