I love a big, fluffy Christmas tree! But when it is big and fluffy, it means you need to have plenty of ornaments to decorate it! Who wants to spend an arm and a leg on ornaments that you put up once a year? Not this girl, oh no. We MAKE most of our ornaments and for a fraction of the cost, by using items you can find around your own home. Don’t believe me?
