What are some DIY Christmas decorations I can create?

Creating your own decorations is a great way to save money while getting the whole family involved in some holiday themed arts and crafts. The easiest place to start is with DIY ornaments for your tree. Some suggestions include: painted pinecones, painted skeleton keys, origami cranes, buttons, mini candle holders, ribbons, vintage baking molds/cookie cutters, tomato pincushions, and other cute items made of yarn or felt. Some ideas for around the house decorations include: making a wreath of photographs, making a wreath out of twigs, pinecones and berries, stitching fabric and holiday patches to plain pillows, hanging up winter items like ice skates and warm scarves, setting up decorated gift boxes, and making a mobile with hanging Christmas ornaments.
