6 Shockingly Cheap & Stylish DIY Holiday Crafts (PHOTOS)

6 diy holiday crafts with styleI'm not gonna lie. I love me some DIY. But I also like things to look ... not horrendous. And when you're not an avid crafter (I have a toddler and a full-time job, people), there's a fine line between kitschy and cute, and, well, hot mess-y.

I decided to go DIY for the holidays this year. After an impromptu trip to Michaels, I was feeling creative, confident, and festive. And if I do say so myself, I think everything turned out quite nice. Bonus? I barely broke $30 on Christmas decorations this year.

Here are 6 cheap holiday decor crafts the most DIY-challenged can do.

Love the photo background idea, and the little tree.  I did a small vase with clippings from the christmas tree.  I also repurposed some old canvas paintings (thrift stores and yard sales). I took the old canvas and used the images from large gift bags and mounted them on the canvases.  I also found a scan of the original cover to "The Night Before Christmas" that I had blown up into a poster and I mounted it on a 20X18 canvas, love it!
