She told me that the first year she was married, they didn’t have the money for Christmas ornaments so she made them all with aluminum foil, paint and other things she found laying around the house. While it made a fond memory to look back on, it’s still nice to have some ornaments that aren’t DIY. You can buy several packs of pretty ornaments on sale or online for a good price and light up a new brides face and her home for the holidays!
