12 Fun Frugal Family Christmas Traditions

Have you seen our list of 12 Fun Frugal Family Christmas Traditions?

One of my favorite traditions on our list is this adorable Carrot Ice Wreath, left out for Santa’s reindeer of course! :)

This special week should be filled with family memories.  I hope our list of 12 family Christmas traditions helps create some ‘Christmas Magic’ in your home.

      My daughter takes riding lessons, and we made the carrot wreaths last night for her to take to the horses as their Christmas gift. She loved making them, and the horses enjoyed them immensely. Two of them were kind of playing with it back and forth with each other!

      This is such a cute idea. Unfortunately our weather is Bi-polar so it may not work out so well...lol!!

      The ice wreath is so lovely, and up here in Canada, it would a last a good long time past Christmas!

      I absolutely love the Carrot Wreath - Unfortunately :( it would melt. It is usually so very very hot here Christmas Day.

      But I will get with Grand kiddies and make a carrot wreath without the Ice, they will love it.

      I am lucky enough to marry into a family with lots of traditions. I didn't have that as a kid but I make up for it now. Thanks for the ideas.

      What do you do with it after Christmas Eve?? I think it's a wonderfully cute idea! Do you pretend that reindeer eat it and put it somewhere for animals? I really love it, but don't know how to have the reindeer "eat it" without being wasteful :)
