Christmas Ornaments Out of Everyday Household Items: DIY For Sure

Unless you have time to get crafty, you are going to have to get creative.
As any adult knows, it takes quite a few years to amass a good amount of Christmas ornaments, and if you are newly out on your own, this may come as news to you. That first Christmas after leaving mom and pop's pad is something of a shock. Christmas ornaments are not cheap. And not only are they not cheap, but you need a lot of them to fill a good-sized tree. Sure, the Dollar Store is always there for you, but their ornaments are crap and when you have to buy 30 of them, it adds up.

No worries. There are plenty of random items you have lying around the house that you can use to trim the tree. You just have to get creative.


Freshen up the tree!
I'm sure you've got some old, nasty loofas lying around. If they just so happen to be red or white, well then, all the better.


Paprika can be festive!
Admit it: The only spice you ever use is salt and maybe the occasional pepper. Why do you even own a spice rack? Oh, that's right, because you put it on your wedding registry and someone actually bought it for you. Put those spices to some use and hang them on your tree.


It's embarrassing that you still even own CDs let alone play them on that weird contraption that is collecting dust in your closet. CDs make great ornaments, and they are so shiny!
