      No need to spend big bucks decking out the tree this year, just raid your craft stash to make these easy pieces!

      1. Sweet Felt Rainbows
      A couple snips, a few stitches and you've just made this year's cutest decoration.

      Who says ornaments have to be wintry? If you like a little extra whimsy along with your snowflakes, Santas and woodland creatures, look no further than a felt rainbow. Hang 'em on your own tree or stitch up a bunch for friends!

      4. Cool Modern Yarn Spheres
      We love this ornament's modern, minimalist look (plus we bet you already have the yardage you need).

      5. Amazing Origami
      Fold up a ton of these and you've got a tree with a whole new vibe.

      Remember paper chains? Well we've got an even better way load up your tree with bold, bright, beautiful paper. Seriously, look how cool these are.

      Never-fray felt is so easy to work with.

      Wool craft felt transforms into modern ornaments with a few snips and a bit of glue and stiffener.

      Sweet little circles of holiday happiness made right here with your trusty hook.

      These crocheted ornaments are every kind of perfect: simple to make and soooooo cute. You can customize the pattern in endless ways (thick stripes, thin stripes, no stripes!), so you'll never get bored making them. Which is why every single person on your list might get one this year.

      8. Delicate Knit Snowflakes
      Lacey and light-as-air, these snowflakes would also look gorgeous hanging on a window sill.
