Most of the materials are under five dollars and are available at your local craft store. Find out how to make your own here.
Get Creative With Your Christmas Tree Container
The easiest way to make your tree stand out this year? Pick a unique container! Instead of simply plopping your tree in a stand, place it in a wagon, crate, or antique bucket. If you’re in the mood to get crafty, you can even make your own gift box stand! All you need is a cardboard box and a little wrapping paper for this DIY holiday decorating project.
Create Your Own Holiday Garland
This look is so easy even the most artistically challenged among us can conquer it! If you can cut and tie a knot, you can do this DIY holiday project. String lights are a holiday must, and this version is extra festive due to artfully knotted strips of decorative burlap. As a plus, this is a project little ones can help with if they are supervised while using scissors.
Get Crafty With A Wine Cork Tree
Continuing our rustic-chic theme, our next project is all about making use of wine corks. Another simple DIY holiday decorating idea, this one consists of a little light painting and hot glue gun action. If you’re confident in your skills, you can try writing out lyrics to Christmas carols as seen in the image above! A bonus is these make great housewarming gifts for any holiday parties you may be attending.
Get Your Own Floating Candle Centrepiece
With all the hustle and bustle of cooking and wrapping, it’s easy to forget about the all-important table centrepiece for your holiday dinner. Fear not, we’ve got a simple yet effective idea. This project is also the least labour intensive on our list. All you need is a few sprigs of rosemary, floating candles, and some frozen cranberries. Put it all in a mason jar with some water and your guests will be welcomed by a lovely floating candle display!
