1st Annual Homemade Christmas Ornaments Contest

Each year we celebrate a frugal Christmas season at BetterBudgeting by featuring our crafty members' homemade ornaments. The creative ideas they come up with are budget friendly, often recycling items from around the home, and quite simply, WONDERFUL! Whether you're searching for an inexpensive gift idea, special ornaments to make for your family and friends, or a fun holiday craft project to keep the kids busy during Christmas break, we hope you'll enjoy our delightful homemade ornaments.
