DIY Holiday Decorations
I really love repurposing supplies and items around the house for decorating. It’s one of my joys to DIY holiday decorations since it serves double purposes: reusing Items that I find around the house and creating a cute and beautiful space for me and my husband to live in (see below for the decorations that I put crafted). Nothing I make is very complicated or requires expensive tools so I figured that a short description would be enough. If you need me to clarify anything, please feel free to leave a comment or contact me via the contact me page.
Bar Cart – DIY Holiday Decorations
Framed Text Art – I used Canva to make this print. Choose your favorite words and make the shape of a tree. The star is a free icon provided by Canva.
Twine Tree – I bought a decorative tree from the dollar store and removed the plastic garland and wrapped twine around the plastic base.
Sewing Circle Mini Wreath – I hot glue-gunned garland from a dollar tree decoration to a sewing circle to make this mini wreath.
Christmas Tree Garland – I used some lace that I purchased from a fabric store and some burlap ribbon as garland for my tree this year. I’ll be less lazy next year and get an actual garland for the tree.
Fireplace & Television Area – DIY Holiday Decorations
Framed Art with Dried Flowers – The frame is actually from IKEA ($13), but the flowers are from a dried bouquet that was gifted to me on my wedding day.
Gold Spray Painted Wine and Beer Bottles – I recycle and repurpose a lot of items around my house. The bottles were originally used for our wedding banquet. I like the color they add to the fireplace. I made them by spray painting (this is the one I use) old wine and beer bottles.
Cooking String Wrapped Tree – Similar to the twine tree that is on the bar cart, I bought a decorative tree from the dollar store, removed the plastic garland, then wrapped cooking string around the plastic base. This is the same string that you would use to tie together your turkey legs.
In my perfect world, I would be able to make everything that I consume and use. I’m not quite there yet. See below for the items I had to purchase.
