10 DIY Disney Christmas Decorations That Will Make Your Holidays Magical
Admittedly, I am not the craftiest person. I like looking at crafts, I like pinning crafts and thinking one day I may make them with the kids, and I like buying ready made crafts on Etsy and at the Christmas craft shows. But buying and looking aren’t going to cut it with the kids. They have crafting needs and Christmas break is the perfect time to stock up on some Disney crafting supplies.
Check out this expert roundup of 10 DIY Christmas crafts that don’t require a ton of forethought or end up looking amazing.
