Minimal approach to Christmas is more and more popular, and I am a big fan of it myself! Why make your home full of flashy colorful decorations, when you can easily bring winter spirit with fewer and more subtle ornaments. Handmade items are a lovely way to make this festive time even more special, because you create a tradition instead of borrowing someone else’s. Unique designs made by you can become treasured family memorabilia, passed on through generations. Another amazing thing is, that these decors are very easy to make, so beginners, try them!
