DIY Holiday Decor

DIY Christmas decorations

Now that we’re past turkey day and in the full swing of the holiday season, it’s time we address a really important matter: holiday décor. Sure, the holidays are about spending time with family and eating delicious treats, but part of the fun is getting to redecorate your home or office!

I’m not as much of a shopper as I am a DIY’er. I love easy-to-do projects that can be customized. This time of year I’m “oooohing” and “ahhhhing” as I browse through Pinterest. Talk about creative! These decorations are really cute and super seasonal. It was hard to narrow it down to just a few, but I had to share a couple of my favorites.

Repurposed Light Bulb Christmas Ornaments

I shared these last year but they’re still a favorite. Plus, they’re really easy to make. And you can hang them anywhere (doesn’t have to be the tree) like the front porch or a house plant. Here’s the original blog with a how-to:

DIY Mason Jar Luminaries

I love these mason jars because they’re SO easy! You can change these up – you don’t have to write JOY. Make some for the kids’ room with their initials, or use non-seasonal words like LOVE and HOPE. Try changing up the bells with twine for a more rustic look.

Hanging Paper Star Lanterns

Talk about a beautiful winter night decoration. I’ve fallen head over heels for these hanging stars because of how majestic they are. These are a conversation piece, for sure. You can purchase these paper stars on, according to the original post. The idea to use Christmas lights is so creative and gives you room to experiment with different colored lights (you could create a Christmas star rainbow)!

Light-Up "Glowing" Snowballs

I’m telling you, there’s no limit to what you can do with chicken wire. You could use these light up snowballs to decorate your yard or your deck. Though this looks like a time consuming project, with a group of people it could come together quickly. This is taking those blow-up decorations to the next level.

Send me an email or post on Facebook if you tackle one of these projects. I would love to see photos! Follow me on Pinterest for more ideas on DIY holiday décor.
