10 Easy DIY Ways To Decorate Your Home For Christmas

Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store, he reasoned. Perhaps Christmas means a little bit more now!” – How the Grinch Stole Christmas, by Theodor Seuss Geisel

Dr. Seuss was dead on in his assessment. No, a store won’t have the ideal Christmas. Factory-made ornaments are cold and soulless. Readymade is so boring and dated; it’s generic. Handmade decorations for your home and tree will give this Christmas a little extra sugar and spice.

Do not consider yourself to be a creative person. Do not fret! We have a ton of simple and enjoyable suggestions for making gorgeous handmade Christmas decorations that will astound your loved ones. These DIY Christmas decorations will also help you save a ton of money without sacrificing the aesthetic appeal of your décor.

Here are our top DIY suggestions for enhancing and upgrading your house this holiday season.

DIY Wreath To Add Colors To Your Christmas Decor

A lovely wreath outside the house creates a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. This year, defy convention and create a beautiful handmade wreath at home. You won’t believe this one, but it contains pasta! A paper plate, glue, spray paint, and some farfalle pasta are all you need! It can be adorned with bows and pinecones. You can be sure that your neighbors will be envious of you!

DIY Homemade Christmas Tree To Make A Bold Statement

Make your own Christmas tree this year instead of using a traditional fir or pine one if you really want to stand out. This simple-to-assemble tree has a refined and rustic appearance. All you need to put them together is a hot glue gun, some scrap wood, or small wooden dowels of various lengths. Decorate it with a string of fairy lights, large bows, and other handmade hanging accessories. And presto! Your very own custom Christmas tree is here!

Minimalist No-Mess Tree For Those Short On Time

Try this minimalist DIY Christmas tree instead if you lack the desire (or time) to go all out decorating a towering tree or have limited space. Put a branch in a glass jar or vase after spray-painting it. Simple decoration is key in this case, so add a few Christmas trinkets. It is fashionable and chic.

Beautify Your Christmas Decoration With Scented Candles

You don’t need to use your glass or silver candlesticks during the holiday season. Make your own lovely rustic ones by gluing cinnamon sticks around a votive candle and wrapping it in a pretty ribbon or piece of lace. Pine cones and a little bit of greenery can be added to further decorate them. These are simple to make, and your home will smell divinely festive thanks to the warm, nutty scent of cinnamon.

Fun DIY Christmas Tree Decorations For A Festive Aura

Felt Is Fun: Make your own Christmas tree decorations this year by forgoing the plastic bells, baubles, and tinsel and opting for felt instead. With felt, you can get as creative as your DIY skills will allow. Whatever you create using vibrantly colored felt will look festive, adorable, and fun whether you cut, stick, sew, or embellish (or not)! There are countless options, including trees, snowmen, hearts, stars, and candy canes.

Hang Those Cookies: Making decorations out of gingerbread cookies or salted dough is a really enjoyable holiday activity for the whole family. Not to mention that making them will also help you save a ton of money! Use your imagination when using cookie cutters to make some cheery ornaments for yourself.

Use Citrus In Your Quest For A Homemade Christmas!

Tangerine Santa: A few tangerines, some spices, and a few scraps of fabric for the hat and scarf make up the adorable and simple Tangerine Santa. Make a family for your mantelpiece or put him in the center of your coffee table!

Citrus And Cloves: Oranges garnished with cloves make for pretty little tea light holders made of citrus and cloves. They can be merely haphazardly positioned here and there as Christmas decorations.

These quaint mason jars, which are simply embellished with a ribbon, some lace, pine cones, and a few sprigs of greenery, would be a welcome addition to the window sill or side table. They serve as inexpensive but attractive lamps to enliven any nook of the house. Additionally, creating a snowy effect by placing some Epsom salt under tea lights or candles!
