A tight budget can be daunting during the holidays, but homemade Christmas decor and gifts are often the best. We tend to forget that, getting caught up in the onslaught of Christmas media commercialism that starts before Halloween.

Dough ornaments have been popular off and on for decades and cost next to nothing to make — to get the simple recipe and directions for making the whimsical gingerbread boy Christmas ornament featured in the vintage 1970s Morton Salt magazine ad above, click here.

The fun creating cute dough ornaments with children on a chilly weekend morning during the Christmas season is priceless for the memories.

Additionally, Christmas tree dough ornaments are a terrific arts and crafts project to do with kids during the summer months when life is less hectic (and school-aged children are bored). When December arrives, huzzah! The ornaments are ready to go on the Christmas tree or be sorted for gift-giving.

Christmas from your cupboard… frugality at its best.

Also, loving God, my family, and my country. Be wise, be frugal. God bless America!
