5 Christmas  DIYs to Prep  for now

By Design of Your Life


What about you?

Hi! I'm Alicia  & I LOVE  holiday DIYs!

The last month of the year is crazy busy and I've found that I get more accomplished with a little pre-planning.


From now through mid-November, yarn will go on sale at the big craft suppliers. If you want to make this wreath this winter, I’d stock up on yarn now.  You could also slowly wrap your yarn balls, a.k.a. snowballs, while you relax and binge [insert Netflix show here].

The glass jars will often go on clearance sale at the end of the summer and are also really popular deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Pick them up early!

DIY Snow Globe Jars


The greenery stems will go on sale before Thanksgiving. Also, look for the little village house at the center of the wreath. Hobby has them now!

Joann Fabric has ceramic bell-shaped containers but they sell out quickly. As soon as they start putting holiday decor out, start looking for them. Also pick up holiday scented candles that are on clearance or on sale (vanilla, cinnamon, etc).

Hobby Lobby, Walmart, the At Home Store, and Target will all have big deals on large sets of shatterproof ornaments in all kinds of festive colors around Black Friday/Cyber Monday too.
