Make Your Home Merry and Bright with These DIY Christmas Decorations
'Tis the season for decking your halls (and trees, walls, doors...you get the picture). Sometimes using store-bought (or even more convenient—ordering them online) decorations is the way to go, but there's something so special and charming about homespun DIY Christmas decorations that money simply cannot buy. Case in point: These thoughtful Christmas craft ideas and projects are impossibly easy, make for hours of family fun and are easy on the wallet (we could all use a little extra dough to spend on gifts for kids and stocking stuffers).
From easy-to-make Christmas ornaments to simple Christmas table decorations and even show-stopping DIY holiday wreaths, there's something here for every taste and skill set. Handmade sweater stockings, a DIY advent calendar made using galvanized pails, loads of ideas made with vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, and boxwood chair markers are just a few of the inspired ideas you'll find on this list. Don't own a hot glue gun? No worries! The most novice crafters will find a suitable (and adorable!) project to enjoy.
Once the inside is all dolled up, take your creativity outside. We've included a few DIY outdoor Christmas decorations that'll have your front porch looking ready for the holiday season in a snap. For example, a wreath made of collected Shiny Brite ornaments gives your door a vintage-inspired feel, while "snow-covered" pine cones lend an organic, natural touch. Now let's get crafting!
