It’s time to deck the halls friends! Just the thought of holiday traditions and family gatherings brings a smile to most people’s faces and evokes feelings of nostalgia and sweet anticipation. From the ornament-laden tree and decorated mantel all the way to the front porch, below are some ideas for making your home merry and bright all season long. The best part is they are all DIY, which means you can make them until your heart’s content.
Tea Light Snowman Ornament. These fun, festive ornaments are great crafting option for kids and adults alike, and they are adorable.
Rustic Twig Ornaments. Simple As That offers up some great ideas for a more natural and inexpensive way to bring elements of nature inside. With some simple tools, supplies and Christmas Spirit this is an easy way to spend the afternoon.
Silver Seed-Pod Ornament. Martha Stewart’s website offers up an idea for stylish DIY ornaments that bring Nature indoors in an upscale way. A decorated tree is one of the most enduring holiday emblems, and some of the most treasured memories can be evoked from ornaments handmade by everyone in the family, young and old.
Cardboard Christmas Trees. These life-size trees make a festive statement, and the best part is they store flat. Not for the crafting faint of heart but these upcycled trees can be left “natural” depending on the cardboard or a great decorating project for the whole family.
Butcher Paper Table-runner. Change up your table-scape this year and use butcher paper instead of that fussy tablecloth. For a dramatic effect use black. Paint pens allow you to draw decorative elements and fun place cards, and it makes cleanup easier which is a win win.
