Decorating for the holidays can be an enjoyable way to spend time with family and friends. Some of the best gifts we can receive and give are often homemade. With that in mind, we’d like to share with you some fun DIY decorating and gift ideas that will help make the holidays a little more festive and special this year.

As with every year, new holiday themed gadgets, trinkets and inventions for the kitchen spring up. Some of the more exciting ones included these neat chalkboard mugs. Along with those and in keeping with the spirit of the season, a lovely homemade bread and jam gift basket is a sure way to brighten up anyone’s day!

Have you spotted ‘Cake in a Jar’ yet? What a lovely take-away for your holiday guests! This is also a great way to say “Happy Holidays” to a friend, family member or neighbor.

Some decorating ideas for Christmas trees included homemade Scrabble ornaments. Of course, there is no limit to your creativity with these simple and timeless letters. In addition, check out for more nontraditional DIY holiday activities that include such things as making homemade gumdrops, spoon rings, and a candy topiary.

For simple touches around the house, check out these beautiful gold leaf paper mache bowls. Imagine some holiday potpourri or pine cones stacked high.

Making homemade ornaments is a great way to get kids in the spirit and keep them entertained. Make such things as, sock snowmen, paper towl tube stars or cork reindeer ornaments.
