Perfect Decorations to Trim Your Tree with all Under $25

I love Christmas and one of my favorite things is decorating the tree. Pulling out all the ornaments and getting together as a family to decorate the tree. When I was younger we would go to the store and I would be allowed to pick one ornament that I wanted to add to the tree for that year. I found some beautiful handmade ornaments that I had to share that are perfect for trimming the tree and for giving. I want to thank all the artists who are letting me show off their beautiful creations.


1.Bast and Bruin: Bast and Bruin creates beautiful dream catchers that are a perfect addition to any Christmas and you can still use after Christmas. This lovely dream catchers come in so many different styles and are 100% handmade from start to finish. Each dream catcher is wrapped in twine or yarn and has webbing made from leather,yarn, or twine stretched across a 3" inch metal ring in different designs. Each dream catcher has natural dyed feathers and completed with a leather loop for you to hang. Each dream catcher is unique and no two are alike and vary in size in hanging length with most hanging at approximately 3.5" wide x 7" long. These beautiful dream catchers are $18.95 an you can find them at www.etsy.com/shop/bastandbruin and at www.bastandbruin.com .
