Christmas is a fun time of year when people like to enjoy time with friends and families. It's also a time for many to turn their homes into winter wonderlands with decorations and treats. This book looks at some cute and easy ways to make your home look beautiful and inviting for the holiday season. Full of fun and easy crafts, this book will help fill you with inspiration to have a creative Christmas!

I love the projects and pictures in this book. The crafts use a lot of everyday things in interesting ways. I particularly loved the use of old cheap figure skates as a garland. What a fun way to celebrate winter! Another of my favorite projects was the ornaments made from old stamps. They turned out absolutely beautiful and appear to be very cost effective as well. Many of the projects in this book seem like they can be made on the cheap yet still look expensive. That is a really great approach to take. 

At then end of the book there are beautiful pictures of homes decorated for the season. These pictures were really inspiring to me. Using crafts like the ones found in this book, the homes looked very inviting and well decorated but not too formal. They were places I thought would be a fun place to celebrate the holiday season. Definitely check this book out for some fun ideas. I think a lot of them could even be done with younger members of your house. Some of these would also make very cute gifts. I'm ready for the Christmas season with some awesome ideas now!
