Unique Homemade Christmas Decorations For Holiday Decorating on a Tight Budget –
I have seen THE cutest and most unusual Christmas decoration ideas lately – and they’re all pretty cheap to make. What I really love about these DIY Christmas decorating ideas is that they’re all so unique and NOT the normal Christmas decorating ideas you see inside and outside your neighbor’s homes every Holiday season.
This first idea is SUPER cute for decorating the classroom for the Holidays, but it’s also a fun craft decoration to make with your kids at home.
Yep, it’s a classroom Christmas tree made out of boxes that are spray painted green and then the kids can decorate the tree with their own DIY ornaments.
Adorable AND looks super fun for the kids, too!
