4 Cheap and Easy Holiday DIY Decorations

With the holiday season coming, it's time to make things a little more festive. But the problem is that decorations are stupidly expensive. So my favorite route to take, is to make my own. Thanks to my artsy roommate, here are a few things that we do to make our room festive and bright.

1. Wreath


You can either buy a really cheap wreath or you can make your own. I recommend getting a foam ring from a craft store and them either gluing ornaments to it, or actually trying to put on foliage.

2. Banner

This is the easiest of the DIYs. You can go really easy and just make a standard paper chain like back in kindergarten. Or you can buy a make your own kit from a craft store. With some string and felt you can make cute banner that can be hung up and jazz up any room.

3. Lights


This may not be a real DIY but lights can change a room from being boring, to being a holiday masterpiece. You can bye really cheap lights and then either hang them around a room, outside, or used in a decorative placement setting. Plus, they can be reused.

4. Snowflakes


Let's bring it back to old school. Simple paper snowflakes may seem tacky, but with attention and time they can be the cheapest decoration. In fact, you can find patterns online to make amazing snowflakes and turn your room into a winter wonderland.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
