One of my favourite ways to get into the Christmas spirit is to put on some of my favourite carols and break out the craft supplies. Here are some easy gift and decor ideas that you can make with simple household supplies this holiday season. (Pssst—these Christmas craft ideas for kids will also help keep them busy while counting down the days to Christmas!)
