DIY Christmas Crafts For The Not-So-Crafty

All we want for Christmas is a DIY-decorated home that looks like it was crafted by Martha Stewart herself. But chances are, that won't go according to plan.

The fact is, some of us just aren't that crafty.

"I'm totally going to be bleeding by the end of this"

And that includes a few of our Huffington Post Canada editors. So naturally, we got them to attempt this "easy" tinsel Christmas wreath tutorial.

Really, they're here to make us average folk feel better about our less-than-picture-perfect DIY attempts.

"I'm totally going to be bleeding by the end of this," Parents editor Kristy Woudstra predicted as she jabbed a paper plate with a pair of scissors.

Watch the video above, and once you get the gist of the project, attempt your own! And don't feel bad if your attempt turns out like theirs.
