Monday’s Finding: Yuletide DIY

Pinterest. If you’ve heard of it and are on it, you know how addicting it can be. If you haven’t, oh you must check it out. It’s a place to pin and store all of those inspiration pics, food porn, and DIY projects without clogging up your bookmarks or having to print them out. I love it and all of the amazing things people create and find.

Today I present ten of my favorite Yuletide DIY decor projects found via Pinterest. In my household, my kiddo has a small tree that we craft ornaments for each year. Last year it was salt dough ornaments and this year it’s cinnamon apple ornaments made from applesauce and cinnamon. I found the recipe on Pinterest and I wanted to post some of my favorite Holiday themed DIY projects to make your holiday decorating and party season festive and fun.
