DIY Christmas Decorations I

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

Christmas is a season to give and receive, talking about love, hope, wishes but also, we have the gifts, it’s a hard season to spend too much money, that’s why here are some little ideas to give to your friends or family, first of all we need to be familiarized with the meaning of DIY.

DIY is the activity of making or repairing things yourself, especially in your home. DIY is an abbreviation for ‘do-it-yourself’.

So, check your house, because you can do many handcrafts with materials that you have, even you can recycle some things that you consider are trash like:  

  • Newspaper
  • Bottles
  • CDs
  • Roll of toilet paper
  • Paperboard

Let’s imagine all the possible combinations that we can do, like a Christmas tree or to create new ornaments for your tree, and talking about gifts you can make a photo album like in the photo, only using a incomplete card game, and the memories are forever; or what about to put in a bottle many phrases when your friend is in different mood like “Read this when you feel happy/sad/angry with me, etc.” and there write suggestion, motivational phrases or a memory together.

  Let your imagination fly, a gift doesn’t need to be very expensive or very extravagant, remember that is better give than receive, enjoy this season with the people you love.

And remember, Santa Claus is coming to town.
