This Christmas, we put aside the Christmas ornaments bought in stores and we make our original decorations!
For the holidays this year, give up inflatable snowmen and other expensive products from the stores. Let's create a magical and festive atmosphere, by recycling everyday objects or go buy stuff to your favorite craft shop!
And to inspire you, here are 12 interesting and original ideas!
