My Favorite DIY Christmas Decorations

I am truly a home decor fanatic. If I had the chance, I would live a Home Goods store and never come out. I love all holidays that require some kind of decoration. However, I don’t always decorate or I do it in a simple way because…well, I have bills to pay :).

I recently shared a post about my mini DIY Fall Wreath  and will share my DIY Christmas wreath soon. I’m holding out on that post because I’m looking to take the best photos I can (crosses fingers hoping to be able to take great photos of my entry door this evening before it gets dark out).

With that said, here are my favorite DIY Christmas decorations.

  1. Beautiful and edible. What a nice combo for this DIY Peppermint Wreath.

2. Craft Your Own Tree I actually like this idea because my kiddos would love to get involved. We once had a Christmas tree, but we donated it to Goodwill after moving several times. Plus I was happy to see that thing go because it was messy and cleaning up after it was a hassel. Haha, our Christmas tree sounds like a pet.

Use yarn to style a mini version on an empty wall or in a hallway. Enlist the kids to dress it to the nines with paper-circle

3. I love love love this idea of a ruffled Christmas tree skirt. My initial thought was, “this could take a good hour or more to make”, but check out the step by step guide. Spending over an hour will be well worth it because you get to use this beauty over and over again. Get your hot glue ready! No sewing necessary!

4. Noel Door Sign This is a really cool idea if you’re looking to get away from door wreaths.

Dress up craft-store letters with faux moss for a message that's got meaning and texture. Get the tutorial at A Beautiful Mess »

5. Snowy Jars Tell me this creative votive decor does not make you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside? I just melted.

6. Get Creative with Chalk! This is definitely a unique Christmas Tree. And budget-friendly too!

This blogger got into the spirit by drawing up a beautiful Christmas tree on her chalkboard wall (and we love her door-frame garland, too!). See more at Hunted Interior »

7. Glow Branches. Get this look using plain branches wrapped with Christmas lights strings.

8. Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa La La La La!

Celebrate your favorite Christmas carol by displaying the lyrics atop your mantle. See more at The Wood Connection »

9. This Festive Entry Way is everything! Can this be my entryway?

10. Joy and Driftwood This particular idea is giving me life. I actually have a piece of wood that would be great for this design.(Seriously considering making this rustic joy sign soon).

Instead of a traditional sign that reads

11. Small space? NO PROBLEM! Try this flower vase tree.

12. Try this lovely Bow Wreath and you won’t regret it.

To turn store-bought bows into a jolly wreath, first attach a loop of floral wire (for hanging) around a 16

13. Hanging Christmas Planter (source unknown). This is gorgeous!

14. Let it Snow Rustic Sign I am definitely obsessed with wood signs. So yes, I’m blushing over this particular rustic sign. Drools…..

Place this rustic sign next to your Christmas tree or by the fire to stay cozy amidst a hopeful flurry. Get the tutorial at Live Laugh Rowe.

15. Picture Frame Decor This idea could be easily executed by using a recycled picture frame.
