Farmhouse Christmas Decor – Why Buy It? Make It Instead

A Cozy Lifestyle with Clearissa Coward

Christmas DIY

While walking through Walmart the other evening, I saw an over-sized ornament that I fell in love with. Although I loved the ornament I couldn’t see myself paying approximately $7.99 for one Christmas ornament.

I took a photo of the piece and decided I would pass it up. However, once home, I remembered that I had purchased wooden ceiling fan blades back in the summer and I had a light-bulb moment. I COULD MAKE IT.

Christmas Shopping Tip #3: Layaway

With that in mind, I made the piece. Let me know how you think I did. And you will be surprised at how little I spent.
