It’s that time of the year again, you want to decorate your house. Celebrating that time of year when homes go from ordinary residences to wow-worthy displays of glitter, and twinkle lights.
There’s something about Christmas that makes people get crafty, whether that means simply cutting out paper snowflakes for your windows or building an elaborate centrepiece out of gingerbread. Whatever your case may be, you’ll be itching to find ways to transform every inch of your home into a cozy winter wonderland.
Lucky for you, we’ve selected 10 of the most creative DIY holiday décor ideas to make it all possible.
So without further ado, let’s dive right in!
Decorate The House For Christmas With These Last-Minute Ideas
1. Starburst Ornament
This year, complement your Christmas tree’s glamorous neon lights with sparkling silver stars made out of toothpicks. To create a silver star, push halved and whole toothpicks into a foam ball and add one or two coats of spray paint.
Before the paint dries up, dust them with fine silver glitter and let them dry. Next, attach hanging strings using a hot glue gun.
2. The Fake Fireplace
Instead of candles, fill your decorative lanterns with string lights to add a touch of coziness to your non-functional fireplace.
You can use old lanterns for this decorative project or these amazing resin log candle holders. Compared to setting up a lit fireplace, this DIY is faster and safer for the cold winter season. With the chaos that comes with the holidays, this simple hack will save your life.
3. The Shiny, Oversized Wreath
When decorating the mantel, you can go traditional with an evergreen wreath. If you’re looking to spice it up with bright colorful light, an oversized wreath punctuated with sparkling hues will definitely make an eye-popping statement!
If bold colors aren’t your thing, you can use white lights to get the same glamorous effect. Try to strike a balance with your décor such that the lit wreath shines without being too overwhelming.
4. All Wrapped Up Christmas Tree
Your tree is undeniably the star of the show when decorating for Christmas. So why not make it the focal point of your room? Whether you’re going for a traditional theme or looking to get crafty, the right presentation will help achieve that.
For a uniform ambiance, neatly arrange the gifts around the tree base and keep your wrap treatment minimal, consistent, and monochromatic.
As for the palette, you can choose the traditional red and green or go for metallics and hints of blue. Whatever color you choose, be sure to decorate the tree in the same hue to neatly tie the whole picture together.
5. Simple Wreath
The beauty of this kind of wreath is that it’s so easy and chic. Making a simple wreath is quite easy. The little tchotchkes aside, you’ll need wire, a metal hoop, and leaves.
Using wire, layer the leaves and wrap as you go. Your guests will enjoy looking at your stunning eucalyptus wreath.
6. Jingle Runner Table Decor
This runner doesn’t just look festive, it also sounds incredibly Christmassy! Plus, the “berries” are actual red jingle bells.
Better yet, it’s super easy to make. Start by cutting holly leaves from light green and dark card stock. Using a wooden skewer or a bone folder, indent the veins in the leaves and trace the resultant indents with a green coloring pencil. Next, run them down the center of the table you’re decorating and put red jingle bells throughout.
7. Vintage Tart Pan Tree
If you want to bring some vintage vibes to your Christmas season, this is the project for you.
To make this tree decoration, collect vintage tart pans of different sizes, ranging from 3-11 inches. Next, stack them up from the largest to the smallest to form a Christmas tree shape. Top the “tree” with a star-shaped baking mold and finish with a charming snow scene accent.
Edible snow globe cookies are a holiday delight for both kids and adults. As such, you can use them as decor for the kids-only table or as a party favor for an adult-only gathering!
9. The Fun Countdown
Make the countdown to Santa’s arrival more fun with a creative advent calendar. Alternatively, you could round up several containers and fill them with holiday treats. Include the usuals, such as candy, small trinkets, and other food items. Use colorful tissue paper as a topping, and label each container from 1 to 25 using number stickers.
While chocolate-filled calendars will do just fine, this stackable idea is more out-of-box. What’s more, you can reuse this creative advent calendar next year—except for the tissue paper.
