Homemade Christmas

Christmas has already begun to creep into the farmhouse and I can’t say that I’m mad about it! 2020 has been a challenging year. I think we can all agree that there’s a need for joy now more than ever before. One way we're spreading Christmas joy around the farm this year is by making ornaments and other handmade gifts to use in our décor and to share with others.

I'd love to share with you three homemade craft ideas that involve the whole family: cinnamon cut-out ornaments, snow globe ornaments, and potpourri jars. Let me know if you give any of these a try!


First up, I’m highlighting these adorable cinnamon cut-out ornaments that any age group will love. It’s an easy, inexpensive and super cute craft. One added bonus is that this project only totals up to around five dollars!

Second, I love these inexpensive, adorable snow globe ornaments that will add a whimsical twist to your tree or holiday gift wrapping. I found all of these items at the Dollar Tree and each ornament is so cute and budget-friendly.

Last but not least are these adorable potpourri jars that you can put at the table for a (small!) family holiday gathering or for a sweet holiday touch to your Christmas table. For this project you can use recycled jars, fresh pine, dried fruit, peppermint sticks and our cinnamon cut-outs.

I love this idea so much because it can involve each member of the family and it smells amazing!

Let me know if you try any of these projects, or if you’ve been inspired to make something new! The countdown to Christmas has truly begun and I hope these ideas helped you get a jump start on the holiday cheer.
