Christmas is the perfect time to show off your making skills, no matter what your craft. And while we love showing off scrappy, made-by-hand ornaments, the rest of the tree is also prime for DIY. Here are just a few creative ideas that'll have each branch looking extra jolly.

Textile hangings are one of the best ways to make a major statement on your walls. The materials are inexpensive, and cloth pieces are a lot easier to manage than large, heavy framed art.
