Bright twinkling lights, warm oversized clothes, the sweet sound of jingles, and most of all, The Gifts! Oh, how magical Christmas can be. My favorite part about the season is the decorations. Though the problem is, ever since I bought a personal apartment, I usually use the same decorations over and over again, which is also a problem for many people I know.
Reusing is always great but what about those of us who want to try new things this festive season? Here I have 30 new, innovative ideas and DIY’s to spice up your apartment this holiday season…even if you’re running low on a budget. So without any further ado, let’s get caroling…I mean, crafting.
