Homemade Christmas decorations are special in so many ways: you have fun engaging in the creative process; you add your personal touch to the finished product; you can often find just what you need in your craft box!
You can easily create a Christmas centerpiece with the kids.
Rummage together through materials you have on hand, especially decorations you no longer use. (We salvaged some greenery from a small artificial tree).
Pine cones and other materials are available online and in craft or dollar stores.
We are fortunate to have a pine tree in our yard that provides us with pine cones so we've used them in several crafts and activities.
