DIY Ankara Print Christmas Ornaments

I love everything about Christmastime – the gift giving, yummy food, festive music, and especially the holiday decorations. Because Christmas brings me so much joy, I’ve always wondered how I can carry it with me throughout the year in a way that doesn’t include traditional décor. I finally figured it out! This year I made Ankara print fabric ornaments. They’re ornaments that can be used as everyday decorations whether winter, spring, summer, or fall.

In today’s DIY tutorial I will show you how to make Ankara print ornaments. If you don’t have Ankara print, you can use any piece of non-Christmas themed fabric. Let’s start crafting!

The DIY Holiday Gift Guide

I’m a strong advocate for DIY-ing Christmas presents. This marks my fourth year in a row making gifts instead of buying them. I started DIY-ing gifts because I was tired of heading into congested malls only to not find anything worth giving to friends and family. I couldn’t even bear the wait for items I ordered online to be shipped to me.

I had to take the initiative! Now I find unique YouTube and Pinterest tutorials for my favorite DIY projects, purchase a few items from the craft store, and create. It’s a peaceful process!

Nothing beats handmade gifts. They are from the heart. This is why I put together a DIY gift guide just for you. Make your presents this holiday season!

If you don’t believe me, try out this simple DIY tree garland project to find out for yourself. Continue reading “Craftsmas Day 5: DIY Glitter and Gold Tree Garland”

DIY Glitter and Confetti Baubles

DIY Bauble Ornaments

On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… bauble ornaments!

When I was growing up, the Christmas trees in my house had everything on them except bauble ornaments. The baubles of that age were made with glass and my parents feared that my siblings and I would break them and accidentally cut ourselves.

Thankfully, baubles are now made with plastic. What’s even better is that they are inexpensive and convenient for crafting. I had to create my own DIY project for them! Continue reading “DIY Glitter and Confetti Baubles”
